Why study in UK

WHY CHOOSE THE UK FOR YOUR OVERSEAS STUDIES?

In a world of life-long learning, British education is … the first-class ticket for life.”
The Prime Minister, the Rt Hon Tony Blair, MP

YOU WILL GET A WORLD-CLASS QUALIFICATION

British qualifications are recognised and respected around the world. The UK enjoys a reputation for unsurpassed quality throughout the world. It encourages skills that are relevant, marketable and much sought-after by today’s top companies which means students can look forward to better career prospects and higher potential earnings.

IT COSTS LESS THAN YOU THINK

British degree courses tend to be shorter than those in other countries, which saves you money. For example, most UK undergraduate degrees take only three years, and most postgraduate Masters courses can be completed in just one year instead of two. The quality is the same as for longer degrees; the studies are just more intensive, and thus more efficient. This is a highly cost-effective approach: because you complete the course more quickly, you save on both tuition and living costs. Their shorter study period also means you are able to enter employment earlier, so you can start earning money sooner.
Another financial advantage is that you won’t need to budget for health insurance. In England, as long as your course in the UK lasts six months or more – no matter what the level of the course – you can register with the National Health Service (NHS). This will allow you access to free doctors examinations and hospital treatment, reduced-cost medicines, dental treatment and eye tests.
