Why study in the United Kingdom?

A degree from a UK institution is a passport to professional success.

Wherever in the world you choose to pursue your career, a degree from a university in the United Kingdom is internationally respected and considered as a mark of quality education. This impression is backed up by numbers, with the UK producing 14% of the world’s most cited academic papers and 5% of the world’s scientific research. These figures are all the more impressive considering the countries that comprise the United Kingdom are home to just 1% of the world’s population. The UK’s universities have a reputation for fostering genius across a multiplicity of disciplines, with luminaries such as Ernest Rutherford (the father of nuclear physics) to Oscar Wilde (acclaimed Irish writer and playwright) graduating from notable UK tertiary institutions.

Choosing to study overseas at a UK university has many financial, cultural and social advantages as well. A shorter and a more intensive course structure means you’ll be able to fast-track your career and minimise your living costs while you study. The country also has a range of programs designed to provide students with discounts and access to cheap public transport and study essentials.

Here are six good reasons for students to consider the UK.

1. The economy

The United Kingdom’s economy is huge. In fact, it’s the sixth largest in the world and has enjoyed steady economic growth until the current world economic downturn. In essence though, businesses are still growing and people are finding work.

2. Education

The UK fulfills the criteria for many students’ needs and has some of the best universities in the world, including Cambridge and Oxford.

3. Quick course completion

In the UK, you can complete your course faster than other countries. An undergraduate course takes just three years and a postgraduate program takes only a year to complete. Shorter course terms enable you to fast track your professional career. This also brings down your overall expenses of pursuing international education.

4. Healthcare

Not every country in the world has a solid healthcare system. In fact, very few have a National Health Service (NHS) like the UK. Legal residents in the UK have access to free healthcare. International students can access the NHS upon payment of the International Health Surcharge (IHS).

5. Culture

There are few places with such a rich culture as the UK. With its mixed ethnic population and a long and interesting history, it is a fascinating place to explore.

6. Geographically well placed

The UK is ideally placed for taking short trips to other countries. Many European destinations can be reached in just a few hours from London, which makes it a great travel hub.
