Study in UK: Position in the International Educational Milieu

There are numerous reasons why students should consider the UK as a study destination, the fact that the UK is a multicultural country is just one of them. Studying in the UK gives them a chance to mix with people from across the world, thereby enabling them to learn so much more than just their course studies. Students are exposed to the international job market and get a chance to interact and network with the best minds. They gain a lot from such experiences and obtain sufficient expertise and opportunities to compete in the international arena.

Universities in the UK have a reputation for academic excellence. This is further embellished by the fact that these universities provide diverse courses while placing a strong impetus on the quality of teaching. The UK has it all, world-recognised universities, innovative teaching approaches, and brilliant minds that ensure that quality teaching is delivered effectively.

A UK education opens doors across the globe and this makes the UK the second most popular and favourable country for overseas students.

Advantages of the UK education

  • Quality Assurance: The UK’s 162 institutions related to higher education have to adhere to strict standards established by the government, so students know that they are getting the best in teaching, support, and resources. British standards are among the highest in the world. UK universities have always featured in the world rankings. Two of the top ten universities in the world, including the world's top university i.e., the University of Oxford are located in the UK (2021 the Times Higher Education World Rankings). This quality is maintained across the country, with 7 of the top 50 universities being based in the UK.
  • Post-study work opportunities: From 1st July 2021, overseas students who have obtained an Undergraduate or Master’s degree will be able to benefit from 2 years of work experience in the UK through the new Graduate Route; students who have completed their PhD will be able to stay on for 3 years.
  • Shorter and intensive courses like Diploma and Certificate: Courses in the UK are designed in such a way that students get the most from their studies as quickly as possible. Many universities allow students to choose from various subject ‘modules’, enabling them to build a course programme that suits them down to a T, thereby providing a perfectly tailored educational experience.
  • If your medium of instruction is English then some of the UK universities grant you an IELTS WAIVER*.
  • International students in the UK are PERMITTED TO WORK 20 hours a week, through which, they can easily afford their regular expenditure while studying.

 

Return on Investment

  • UK degrees are of a globally high standard and are internationally valuable whatever form they take, whether they are delivered in person or have some online elements. Eighty-three percent of international graduates credit their UK degree for helping them get a job (International Graduate Outcomes, UUKi). So, by gaining a prestigious UK education, you will be respected by employers and academics from all over the world.
  • The Master’s programs in the UK are typically for 12 months, versus similar programmes in other countries that are for double the time. Given the worldwide recognition and acknowledgement of UK qualifications and the higher employability prospects, UK graduates are among the most employable in the world (as per QS Graduate Employability Rankings).

Safety and Health

Universities in the UK are contributing to the global effort to manage the virus and to develop a safe and effective vaccine.
