More than 500,000 international students enroll in colleges in the UK each year. Studying in the UK is becoming a very popular choice for international students for several reasons.
Why study in the UK?
· The UK attracts students from all over the world. It is rich in culture, language, and faiths, creating a multi-cultural society.
· Universities and colleges in the UK constantly perform well in world rankings, some are the best in the world. Oxford and Cambridge are two of the top universities in the world, with first-class research opportunities.
UK higher education degrees and qualifications are recognized by employers throughout the world.
Degree courses generally last for 3 years, instead of 4 like some countries. Master courses tend to be 1 year, while Ph.D. courses are 3 years. Classes are more focused, which means less money to pay in tuition.
In the UK, you will stay focused on one subject area, learning a greater depth of that subject. Whereas in the USA where you would study electives from different fields and gain a short insight into a range of different subject areas. This is more beneficial when you know what your field or study area is.
UK universities generally work on a much more lecture-based system, with occasional smaller seminar groups and few assignments throughout the year, depending on the course. In some cases, a final exam may be the whole grade for the year.
Postgraduate study opportunities are also available in a number of universities with sponsorship available in extending Tier 4 visas.
All students have to apply through the UCAS website to apply for any university course. This website has all the information, on every course that you can study in the UK. This makes it very helpful researching which course you want to choose.
