How university works in the UK

I'm US-ian, married to a Brit. We live in the UK with our fifteen-year-old, who will probably want to go to university. No one in my husband's family has completed university, and I want to make sure our child has the best chance to succeed in his application and time at university. I know how college and grad school work in the US. What might I not know about how things work in the UK? He's interested in science, if that makes a difference.

Studying Abroad vs. Working

Asking for my friend. My friend is finishing her associate's degree in a creative field in May, but is not sure of whether she should look for a job right away, or accept her admittance to a prestigious and high-profile exchange program at a foreign university. Oh, and she knows about the flipping-a-coin trick so that won't work. [more inside]
