Study Sociology in the UK

We are currently working on updating our website, and we will add more information here shortly! In the meantime, contact us and we would be happy to tell you everything you want to know about courses within this field of study!


🎓 Most programmes are available at both undergraduate and postgraduate level and it is often possible to combine multiple subjects in a single degree. Most undergraduate programmes (and some Masters') also offer opportunities to study a foreign language, take part in an international exchange, or gain relevant work experience either in the UK or abroad.

🎓 Most Master's degrees take one year to complete and often have no requirement of a Bachelor's degree in the same subject area. This means that you can study for a Master's degree in a different subject from that of your first degree. 

🎓 Entry requirements vary depending on the degree programme and university. As you can imagine, this results in a large number of possible combinations, which can be very confusing. This is where we can help. As experts in this area, we can provide you with the most accurate information tailored to your academic goals and aspirations. Get in touch and we will be happy to assist you.

🎓 Across the Pond matches students with the perfect course and university based on your subject interest, academic background and any geographic preferences you may have. We can assist you with everything needed to help prepare and submit successful applications to UK universities and are available to help even after your studies commence if it's needed. 

Our help is completely free and without obligation!

Applying to study in the UK can be tricky and confusing when doing things on your own. Take all of the stress out of the process by using Across the Pond’s free expertise and guidance. To help you on your way here are some things to be aware of: 


In the UK, admissions are mainly on a rolling basis – meaning it is "first come, first served" until the programme is filled. We therefore recommend that you apply as early as you can, and preferably before Christmas if you want to start your studies the following autumn. Exceptions: Medicine, Dentistry and Veterinary Sciences as well as all courses at the University of Oxford and the University of Cambridge, and also selected courses at master's level. Read more about the time of year you should apply to have the greatest chance of being granted admission. 


Choosing what to study and which university to go to can be a very difficult process, especially when you may not be able to go and visit to find out which option you like best. Our advisors regularly visit the universities and help hundreds of students apply to a wide range of subjects every single year. They will be able to help you determine which universities and courses are best for you based on your academic background and the universities' minimum requirements, as well as your wishes and needs for what you would like your study experience to look like and cost.


We make it very easy for you! We have our own application form where you fill in your information and upload your application documents. We check that everything has been entered correctly before the application is submitted and that way you do not have to worry that you have made any mistakes that may result in you not being accepted. 


To apply for studies at UK universities you need: 

  • One academic letter of recommendation if you are applying for undergraduate studies, and often two if you are applying for Master’s degree programmes. We have advice and tips that you can give to the person who will be writing this for you, so that together we ensure that they include all the information the UK universities are looking for. For postgraduate applicants you may also be required to submit your CV. Please note that how to write a CV for UK universities may differ from how they are expected to be written in your home country. 
  • Preliminary grades or final diploma (final diploma will be sent as soon as you have received it).
  • Personal Statement. It is very important that it is you who has written your personal statement, but we will help you with what is important to include (or not include!) based on what and where you are hoping to study, in addition to proofreading it for you. This is a very important part of the application and whether or not you get in may be decided based on this statement. Some universities and courses have additional requirements and expectations in terms of what they want to see here  and it is very important that you adhere to these indications. That's why we spend a lot of time making your personal statement as good as it can be. 
  • Note: Some courses will also require an audition, portfolio and other admissions tests. 



When applying for undergraduate programmes, an application fee is required which is paid to the admissions service. In addition, some universities charge an application fee for some of the Master’s programmes they offer. These application fees are payable directly to the University or the University and Colleges Admissions Service and not to us. We will never ask for any payment or card information from you and all help from us is free of charge. 

Some universities will require a deposit to secure your study place after you have been granted admission, this will later be deducted from the tuition fee. After you have been granted admission and your place has been confirmed, you will have to pay a fee to apply for a student visa in order to access healthcare in the UK during your studies. If you wish to live in the universities’ student housing you must apply to be allocated a room before the housing application deadline and once this has been processed you are often required to pay deposit to secure the accommodation. When you eventually enrol in the university, you will pay the tuition fee. Prices in the UK vary greatly and if you have any questions about the cost of studying in the UK, please get in touch. We are happy to help you find affordable options! 


We will walk you through each step of the application process and help you with everything you need to consider before deciding whether or not you want to apply to study in the UK. If you choose to complete an application we will help you with absolutely everything from start to finish. 

We are here to help you whether you have questions related to studying in the UK or want more information about selected universities or courses. Contact us whether you just want more information or if you are ready to get started with your application!
