Why choose study in United Kingdom

Easy to research
It’s easy to research the right course for you by visiting the UCAS website. Everyone who goes to has access to the Course Search database containing details of around 38,000 courses from archaeology to zoology.

Studying in the UK will help you develop excellent language skills
The English language is of crucial importance in today’s global business arena. (Most UK universities offer language support to international students but institutions have their own criteria for the level of English that students need to master.) The cultural diversity of life in British higher education is unrivalled
From cosmopolitan cities like London, Cardiff, Belfast and Glasgow, to historic counties like Warwickshire and Yorkshire, the UK is a place of contrasts and culture, where ancient buildings sit alongside contemporary architecture.

Short undergraduate and postgraduate courses
Undergraduate and postgraduate courses in the UK tend to be shorter than in other countries which can help to keep the cost of tuition fees and living expenses down. Most undergraduate courses take three years to complete, although in Scotland it would be typically four years and postgraduate courses can be from one year upwards.

Work flexibility
Typically, international students are allowed to work for up to 20 hours a week during term time and full-time during holidays. If you are from an EU country, there will be even more flexibility. Full details about the conditions for working are on the UK Border Agency website and also on the UKCISA (UK Council for International Student Affairs) website.
