Why Study in the UK?
UK qualifications are recognised and respected all over the world - Britain has a long academic tradition and many other countries have adopted the British education and exam system. Therefore employers are familiar with qualifications from UK universities. 95% of graduates find employment within a year of qualifying.
It’s good value for money – Considering that the UK is a world leader when it comes to university education, the tuition fees are still relatively cheap. For £3000 a year you will receive not only top quality teaching but also high standards when it comes to laboratories, libraries, IT and leisure facilities.
NB! At Scottish universities tuition is free of charge for EU citizens.
Widen your horizons - Living in another culture for an extended period will give you insights that will change the way you think about other countries and your own and, I promise, this is worth just as much as getting a good education. As the UK is one of the most multicultural societies in the world you’ll be mixing with people of all nationalities. Apart from your personal development this experience will be attractive to future employers.
Enjoy your freedom – You will, undoubtedly, miss your mum’s cooking, kanelbullar and lots more but your new found freedom should make up for that. No-one will be telling you what to do and you’ll be expected to plan your time and make your own decisions. This can be quite scary at first, but learning to fend for yourself is all part of the fun.
Perfect your English – I can guarantee that after a month in the UK you will be thinking and dreaming in English! This is the quickest way to improve your fluency and it happens without you even thinking about it. All the students I know who have studied in the UK come back sounding like native speakers. Again, this is a big advantage when applying for jobs.
