Study in UK

About UK

The United Kingdom is one of the major first world countries in the world today. It is known for being a hub of finance, fashion and research. It is one of the most popular choices for students when it comes to choosing their destination for studying a high quality education abroad. Each year more than 500,000 students enrol into the 365 universities located around the kingdom. These universities offer over 50,000 undergraduate courses alone. 

With institutions like University of Oxford, University of Cambridge and the Imperial College London, begin famous for their alumni throughout history and in the present, the country is no doubt a very good option to study. The universities are among the best in the world and have a streak of being in the top in world rankings. Apart from this, they boast a high reputation for world-class research facilities. The degrees issued from these institutions are valued by employers over the globe and have the reputation needed to get their graduates the desired job they aim for. Students have the opportunity to not only get a class education but also develop their skills in critical thinking and make connections which will drive their career forward into the next step. 

Although there is a popularity around the world for four year traditional undergraduate and two year graduate degrees, the United Kingdom follows a different approach. They provide a undergraduate degree in three years and a graduate in one year. This not only saves time but also money, relative to a degree in the US. There are universities offering a combined bachelor and masters degree as well. Another option includes one year of work experience. Degrees like this make your portfolio shine and give the student an advantage over his/her peers. Recently, another development has been made. International students who graduate from university in the UK will have one year visa extension in order to find a job and build a career in the country. An international student is allowed to work 20 hours per week during the school term and full time when school is off.
