What is UK Transnational Education?
Transnational education (TNE) is education delivered in a country other than the country in which the awarding institution is based - e.g. students based in Romania studying for a degree from a university in the United Kingdom. UK TNE refers to UK degree programmes delivered outside of the UK.
Why choose a transnational (TNE) degree?
A UK education enables you to become the most confident, most promising, most prepared version of yourself. But if you have commitments that prevent you from relocating to the UK itself, or are looking for excellent value for money, you could transform your life and career prospects with a Transnational degree.
Provided in English by 142 UK universities, and in 226 countries and territories worldwide, these degrees are your opportunity to benefit from the same rich academic traditions as your peers in the United Kingdom.
You’ll learn from the same cutting edge teaching practices, and receive the same encouragement to think independently, be creative and truly grow as an individual. Perhaps most importantly, you will gain precisely the same qualification as students in England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.
That’s because your degree will be designed, quality-assured and directly awarded by one of the UK’s highly respected universities.
In fact, the only difference between you and your peers in the UK is that you’ll be studying in a location which better suits you, your circumstances and your personal ambitions.
UK degree options in Romania
Many UK higher education institutions offer courses overseas, including in Romania. These courses are provided through local partners and online platforms. They are designed, delivered, and quality-assured to the UK’s own rigorous standards, and lead to UK qualifications that are fully recognised by employers and national education authorities in Romania.
For undergraduate programmes, you can apply for a UK-awarded TNE degree in Romania if you have completed one of following qualifications:
- Romanian Baccalaureate
- GCE A-Levels or other pre-university qualifications equivalent to A-Levels
- International Baccalaureate diploma (or equivalent qualification)
Postgraduate programmes tend to admit students with Bachelor's degrees from Romania or abroad.
There may also be additional requirements depending on the course you choose. Make sure to check details with the UK university that will be awarding your degree, and with the partner institution in Romania where you will be studying.
Which degree should I choose?
There are several UK TNE programmes available in Romania which offer the same high standards of teaching as the courses at universities in the UK.
See below a list of UK degrees that you can study for in Romania, including undergraduate and postgraduate programmes, as well as professional courses developed by local higher education institutions in collaboration with prestigious UK TNE providers.
