NPO

A masters is earned after students complete an undergraduate degree program. To obtain a masters, you usually need to complete 12 to 18 college courses that often involve completing comprehensive tests and/or a thesis.

An NPO typically works to aid countries and communities that are struggling to survive because of floods, famine, disease or war, or because of a lack of amenities such as education and healthcare. NPO students learn how to work with various cultures to provide appropriate and necessary relief.

Education in the United Kingdom is a devolved matter with each of the countries of the United Kingdom having separate systems under different governments: the UK Government is responsible for England, and the Scottish Government, the Welsh Government and the Northern Ireland Executive are responsible for Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, respectively.
