Study in the UK

The UK offers a world-renowned education system, with qualifications that can make a real difference to your career.

UK universities and colleges offer thousands of excellent courses, leading to qualifications that are respected by employers and academics worldwide. When you think of UK higher education qualifications, you might think of bachelor’s and master’s degrees, MBAs and PhDs. There are, however, many other types.

Sitting at the top of the world rankings, UK universities have a reputation for developing the skills that employers are looking for. It’s not only about attending lectures – you will actively engage with your tutors through lively seminars, discussions and practical projects. This will help you develop critical thinking, creativity and confidence.

International Students

Every year close to 500,000 students from 200 nations come study in UK at a school, college or university and 600,000 more come to do an English language course.

In addition, over 500,000 international students each year take a UK qualification overseas – for example, online or at a UK overseas campus.

The UK has a long history of welcoming international students from around the globe. And with a reputation for academic excellence, it’s easy to see why so many international students choose a UK education.

Scholarships, grants, bursaries, fellowships, financial awards, loans… there are many financial support options for international students who wish to study on a UK course. Demand for scholarships is always greater than supply; to maximise your chances, apply as early as you can.

Whatever aspirations bring you here, and whether you study at undergraduate or postgraduate level, boarding school or further education college, you will learn in a safe, multicultural environment. You will be supported while you study as all UK institutions have extensive student support and welfare services you can call on. There’s also a cultural adventure on offer, from music festivals and football matches to ancient castles and vibrant nightlife.

Study Modes

Most full-time undergraduate courses take three years to complete (typically four years in Scotland). Full-time postgraduate courses can be from one year upwards.

The Academic Year

In the UK, the standard academic year starts in September or October and runs until June or July. Some courses are more flexible, however, and offer a range of start dates.

Working in the UK

If you come to the UK on a student visitor visa, child visitor visa, or prospective student visa, you are not eligible to work in the UK.

Some students who enter on a Tier 4 student visa are eligible to work a certain amount of hours per week and in the holiday periods.
