Why study in the UK?

The UK has a long and proud tradition of education, with some of its universities having roots in the 12th and 13th centuries.

UK academic standards are among the best in the world

The UK offers a diverse and flexible range of courses in globally ranked institutions.

Courses in the UK education system are shorter and more intensive than many other countries, so you will graduate sooner without compromising quality. This will save you time and money in tuition fees and living costs.

Universities are monitored closely to ensure that they uphold the highest standards of teaching, learning and research. They also work hard to ensure a safe, caring and supportive environment for all international students.

Quality institutions

The quality of UK universities and colleges is assessed by the Quality Assurance Agency (QAA). Research standards are examined by the four UK higher education funding bodies, who publish their findings every five years.

The UK has the second highest number of universities ranked in the top 100 by the 2013-2014 Times Higher Education World Reputation Rankings.

Links to Europe

The UK is an ideal base from which to explore the history and culture of Europe. Low-cost airlines operate from UK airports and international students from many countries may be able to apply for an EU Schengen visa to allow short trips across 24 countries in Europe on a UK visa.
