Why the UK

Studying in the UK offers students an esteemed, international, and historically-rich education. The UK is one of the world’s most leading countries for academic research, training students to become world-class thinkers. Plus, studying in the UK gives students the opportunity to experience incredible cities and culture while being close to Europe where inspiration and adventure await.

Degree programmes in the UK are designed to encourage innovation and creativity. Courses are usually subject specific, and do not include general education, so students spend more time studying their degree subject gaining the skills and knowledge they need for a successful career. At first glance this may appear to be a much narrower focus than an equivalent course in North America. However it allows students passionate about a specific subject to study it in depth, alongside academics at the cutting edge of research in this field.

Universities also offer integrated master’s programmes along with built in study abroad or placement years to encourage students to get the most out of their time at university.

UK universities offer excellent student support and provide opportunities for students to get involved in clubs, sports and societies no matter what their interest may be. The UK can boast an average timely completion rate of 90% and 87% of students find work or further study within 6 months of graduating

In addition to the academic opportunities, students are met with unique experiences of living in another cultural environment and studying with fellow students from all around the world. The access to travel, music, and culture is a huge part of student life in the UK and one reason why students leave as strong thinkers, researchers, and problem-solvers – making them prepared for any path they take next.
