If you’re convinced that living and studying abroad is right for you, what makes the UK a good choice?

UK qualifications are recognised and respected throughout the world. Your UK qualification will be a solid foundation for building your future, boosting your career and prospects for a higher salary. UK universities, colleges and schools will provide a vibrant, creative and challenging environment in which to develop your potential. Quality standards for UK institutions are among the best in the world. Universities, colleges and schools continually have to prove that their courses meet strict criteria. Many other countries are now trying to follow the example of the UK.

Increasing numbers of international students, from over 180 different countries, are choosing to study towards a higher education course in the UK. Some of the reasons students choose to study here are listed below

  • A good international reputation The quality of UK education is recognised all over the world by employers, universities and governments, making it a popular destination for international students. UK higher education is well-respected for the standard of its research and teaching.

  • A good quality of education UK universities are monitored closely to ensure that they uphold the high standards of teaching, learning and research set by the government. The Quality Assurance Agency for Higher Education (QAA) is the key body charged with maintaining these standards. See the Quality Assurance Agency website for more details.

  • A wide range of courses UK universities and colleges offer a wide range of higher education courses. Whatever your career goals or interests might be, there’s sure to be a higher education course for you. The University and Colleges Admissions Service (UCAS) maintains a comprehensive database of undergraduate courses. See the UCAS website for more details

  • An interesting place to live The UK is full of diverse cultures and people and this is what attracts many students to come here from other countries.

    From cosmopolitan cities buzzing with life to smaller towns and villages, the UK is a place of contrasts – a place where historical buildings mix with the latest contemporary architecture.

    Another thing to consider is that by coming to the UK to study you are likely to develop good language skills. English is arguably the most important language in today’s global business world. By immersing yourself in UK life, you will be developing and honing you language skills each day, chatting to friends, in seminars and lectures and out and about.

    Most UK universities offer language support to international students too.

  • Financial benefits Both undergraduate and postgraduate courses are generally shorter in the UK than in other countries, which can dramatically cut the cost of tuition fees and living expenses. Most undergraduate and postgraduate courses in the UK last three years, although some are longer.

    International students are allowed to work up to 20 hours per week while studying in the UK. (If you are coming to the UK as a student for six months or less, you must specifically ask the Entry Clearance Officer for permission to work.)

    As well as being a good way to fund your studies, working in the UK will also be a great opportunity to polish up language skills and get some vital work experience.

  • Worldwide Recognition Academically, the UK leads the world. Some of the oldest and best universities and schools are located in the UK.

When looking for work in the future, this can be a great selling point in your favour!

  • Global Market Skill British education will provide you with the necessary analytical and creative thinking skills you need for a better positioning in the job market. It will help you forge your professional personality and get better chances in the working world.

  • Scholarships/ Loans Financing an international education is always difficult.

Seasonal variation & what to wear

Whatever the season, the British weather is liable to change from day to day, so if you are wondering what to wear, it is a good idea to bring a selection of items including some light clothes, items you can layer (that way you can add or remove layers depending on temperature), at least one warm pullover and a waterproof coat or umbrella. To get a better idea about what to pack, look at the seaonal variations you can expect in Britain:

Spring (March – May)

In spring, you can enjoy wonderful sunny weather, but it can also be cool or wet. Temperatures fluctuate from around 6 – 11 °C. May can have very warm days – up to about 18 °C.

Summer (June – August)

Most days in summer are warm to hot, but evenings can be cool. Temperatures average around 14 – 30 °C, although it can be up to around 35 °C on some days.

Autumn (September – November)

In autumn there can be very warm days, but equally there can be cool ones too. Temperatures fluctuate around the 7 – 18 °C mark, but are likely to be much warmer in September than November.

Winter (December – early March)

Winter sees Britain’s shortest and coolest days (about 7-8 hours of daylight) but these can be crisp and bright. Temperatures fluctuate from around 1 – 5 °C.

English language courses

The UK – as the home of the English language – has a long tradition of teaching English to speakers of other languages and English language schools have much experience of working with students from all over the world. Courses are available at all levels, providing as much or as little support as you need. And class sizes are small so teaching staff can pay close attention to your learning needs.

Our English language teaching style is mainly practical and you’ll be encouraged to communicate from the moment you enter the classroom. The wide range of creative teaching methods includes games, role-playing exercises, problem-solving and group discussions. You will also be able to use technology and language laboratories to study independently.


Independent schools and colleges

Independent boarding schools in the UK are well-known for the quality of their teaching and their excellent facilities. You can expect to be taught in a small group, where your teacher will give you all the individual attention you need to help you achieve your academic goals. Independence, sociability and a love of learning are all gained from studying at independent schools.

UK schools regularly welcome many international students like you and make special arrangements such as providing English language support.


Career-based and pre-university courses

If you are on a career-based course you’re encouraged to take responsibility for your own studies with extensive support from tutors and lecturers. You might find yourself working on projects with other students, spending time in college libraries and being assessed through practical demonstrations, as well as through essays and examinations. Your course will combine practical skills with a sound academic underpinning, all geared towards a particular career or job.

Most students on career-based courses study at further education colleges. At these colleges you will be assigned a personal tutor who will monitor your academic progress and can advise you on how to improve your study skills or tackle particular academic problems. Most colleges also provide English language support.


Undergraduate degree courses

During degree programmes, some specific elements will be compulsory but others will be optional, allowing you to tailor the course to your interests. The core topics of your course will be outlined to you through lectures.

More in-depth analysis will take place in smaller tutorial and seminar groups where you’ll prepare topics in advance and discuss them with the other students and the tutor. You will be assigned your own personal tutor with whom you can review your individual progress and discuss any problems. You’ll need to read extensively around the subject and you’ll be encouraged to form your own ideas and opinions. The close contact between students and tutors is a particular strength of UK degree courses.

If you choose a technical subject, you are likely to spend a large portion of your time in supervised laboratory work, designed to develop necessary technical skills.

UK institutions also provide excellent English language support for international students like you. Many have language centres where you can use language-learning materials. Many also offer in-sessional English classes for international students. In-sessional courses provide support tailored to your needs, focusing on the language and study skills to help you in the work for your main course.


Postgraduate programmes

All postgraduate programmes require you to do a great deal of work on your own initiative. On taught courses, postgraduate tutors and lecturers will provide the framework of the course and, within this, you will be able to pursue your own interests. On research programmes, the principal teaching method is original research, which you complete under academic supervision. Writing a dissertation about your research forms a substantial part of the programme. Many UK research programmes now begin with introductory taught courses that provide training in research skills to help you prepare for the advanced research you’ll need to do.

Close contact between students and tutors is a particular strength of all UK degree courses, with opportunities to review your individual progress and discuss any problems. As with undergraduate degrees, UK institutions also provide excellent English language support for international students. Many have language centres where you can use language-learning materials. Many also offer in-sessional English classes for international students, focusing on the language and study skills you will need for the work on your main course.


MBA

Master of Business Administration (MBA) courses are a particularly intensive, challenging and rewarding form of taught postgraduate course. You’ll be expected to work through a very large amount of material, complete projects and assignments and give regular presentations. Teaching methods characteristic of MBAs include case studies, simulations and business games.
