Why study in UK?
A UK qualification is recognised and respected globally. There are over 450,000 international students from all corners of the world studying in the UK. These ambassadors of UK education return to their countries upon graduation and move on to successful careers. UK graduates are also in high demand from major corporates globally.
The UK education system is one of the oldest and most highly respected in the world. The UK is home to more than 30 universities in the international top 200 (Times Higher Education Guide 2013), of which UEA is one. English language is spoken around the world – studying the UK provides a unique opportunity to experience English language within a UK-context. As the UK attracts a significant number of international students and visitors, it’s also a great opportunity to speak different languages and hear other languages spoken, and learn about other cultures and nationalities.
A major benefit of studying in the UK is the duration of our higher education courses. The majority of undergraduate degrees take 3 years to complete. Most postgraduate taught degrees are taught over a year. Compared to longer running degree courses in other countries, this can save students both time and money and means that students can invest more time in career building, equipped with the qualification of choice.
The UK is an ideal base from which students can explore the rest of Europe. The excellent road, rail and air links allow inexpensive and hassle-free travel. The International Student Identity Card allows students to benefit from special discounted rates while sightseeing. Travel to Europe will also give them the opportunity to learn about different cultures and lifestyles.
