    This is Ludo from the University of Reading. I choose to come and study in the UK because I wanted the worldwide education with all the universities in the UK are providing the same. I also wanted a very friendly environment and I found it in the UK, a really friendly environment to open and this has allowed me to progress not only as a student, but also as a person. So I would definitely recommend to come and study in the UK.

    Hello, this is Florencia from Manchester Metropolitan University. The UK is a fantastic study destination. One of the reasons is because of the quality of the teaching that you receive at university. This is because teaching is linked to research and to the world of industry. So it's up to date and it's relevant to the world of work.

    Hi everyone, Selma from Coventry University, London. Why should you pick the U.K. over other study destinations? To me, the obvious answer is our long history and quality of our institutions. We've only got one hundred and something institutions here in the UK and they're very, very closely monitored by the UK for quality assurance. So the reputation for me is key. Also, the location, the price and the fact that you can stay after you graduate. So why not?

    Hi, my name is Meritza and I am from Aberystwyth University. So, part of the reason as to why the UK is such a hotspot destination for international students is because of the teaching quality and standards in place. More importantly is the research element. A lot of the universities in the UK are heavily research focused and world renowned for their research. Take Aberystwyth, for example, we are known for having the world's first international politics department.
