As of 2018/2019, there were approximately 485,645 international students studying in the United Kingdom, making it the second most popular study destination in the world. This whopping statistic calls into question what exactly the UK seems to offer their prospective students.
- Multicultural Environment
The UK is well known for its multicultural society, where all ethnic backgrounds and religious beliefs are represented. This welcoming and tolerant culture means that international students are able to seamlessly integrate into their new environment.
- Worldwide Recognition
For centuries, the UK has maintained a reputation of excellence within the field of learning and academia. This means that degrees obtained from UK institutions are recognised globally as those of a high standard. This is supported by UK institutions holding a significant number of places within official university league tables.
The high standard of education offered in the UK means that students will be adequately prepared to contribute to an international workforce.
- Lower Education Costs
Most undergraduate degree programs in the UK take three years to complete, as opposed to the more common 4 years in the US. This ultimately works to reduce the overall cost of education within the UK.
- Travel Connections
The UK’s proximity to a number of countries within Europe means that students will have an unparalleled opportunity for quick and low-cost travel during their holiday periods. Whether you are studying in Leeds or London, after procuring a visa, trips to Italy are just a few clicks away with direct flights taking a mere two hours.
- Cultural Attractions
The UK actually offers a number of cultural attractions that students can cover before making any European travel plans. From Stonehenge, which is a prehistoric monument that has attracted tourists since its conception to the Edinburgh Castle, there are plenty of historic wonders to explore as a student in the UK.
The perks of studying in the UK are abundant, so take this opportunity and allow HOF to make it happen for you!
