Why choose a UK education?

Did you know that:

  • Four of the top ten universities in the world are in the UK (World Rankings, QS)
  • The UK is a world-leading research nation (International Comparative Performance of the UK Research Base, BIS)
  • UK-educated international graduates achieve markedly higher average salaries than if they had been educated at home (Tracking International Graduate Outcomes, BIS, 2011)
  • The UK government publishes lists of officially recognised universities and colleges so you can be sure that the one you choose has passed all the tests for quality assurance. See the full list of universities or colleges that can award degrees. 

UK education is all about giving you the inspiration to develop your knowledge and skills, freedom to be creative, and support to help you achieve your best.

On a UK course, you'll gain skills and qualifications to help you succeed in your chosen career.

And outside the classroom, you will have the opportunity to experience the UK's unique countryside, cities and culture!
