WHY STUDY IN UK
1. Get the skills employers want:
During your studies, there will be an opportunity for you to develop the critical thinking skills, creativity and confidence that employers look for.
There may also be the chance for you to get involved in internships, work-placements, volunteering and dissertation placements.
The QS global survey of graduate employers consistently shows that UK degrees are highly valued worldwide, with UK universities topping the QS employer reputation ranking.
Internships and work experience
Having a form of work placement experience definitely gives you an advantage in an increasingly competitive graduate job market.
Some courses include a year of working in the industry or internships in the industry you’re interested in. Work placements provide you with hands-on experience in a profession that you can’t simulate in lectures or the classroom.
2. Higher Standard of Education:
The UK’s academic reputation is world-renowned. Built on a heritage that is now centuries old, our approach to education applies the very latest learning theory through universities that routinely top international tables. Our innovative teaching methods produce successful, versatile graduates who are sought-after by employers around the world.
UK universities have featured strongly in world rankings ever since they began. In 2018 the Times Higher Education World Rankings honoured us with three of the world’s top ten universities, including the top two – the University of Oxford and the University of Cambridge .
Innovative teaching methods
The universities combine traditional lectures with a variety of innovative teaching techniques, designed to encourage independent thinking, problem-solving skills and self-motivation. You will be working in small groups solving real-life problems from your future career, whether in the classroom, the lab or on field trips.
You will have access to leading technology, from state-of-the-art laboratories to interactive screens and online-learning.
The consistently high quality of education in the UK has made UK a firm favourite with international students all over the world, and helped to keep UK at the forefront of global research.
POST STUDY WORK VISAS
