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.
IT IS QUALITY ASSURED AND HAS WORLD-CLASS STANDARDS
The perception that quality and standards are dropping is not true. Most qualifications offered in the UK are subject to strict quality standards overseen by government-appointed agencies.
The UK leads the world in developing quality standards and performance measures. In fact, the country is so committed to quality that the results of several of these assessments are publicly available for you to consult if you wish.
This extensive, sophisticated system of quality assurance means that when you choose to study in the UK, you can be confident that the course and institution you choose are closely monitored to ensure high standards.
