The value of overseas study is immeasurable, and a study abroad semester or degree enhances the educational experience. As such, we have recently been doing a blog post series highlighting reasons to study in ItalyTurkeyChinaSpain and – now our next in line -  the United Kingdom! The UK is home to many of the world’s leading universities, and is a top international student destination for those who would like to improve their English and take advantage of the challenging and creative courses on offer around the UK.

  •          Top universities

  •          Develop your English!

As the birthplace of the English language, the United Kingdom is an ideal location to improve your language skills, which will in turn enhance employment prospects. Since English is the major international language of business, mastery of it certainly can’t hurt! A year abroad in the UK or an entire degree there would certainly improve test scores, and speaking a language fluently is always useful and enjoyable.

  •          Unique and diverse culture

The United Kingdom is home to a diverse range of cuisines, languages and tradtions. Larger cities such as London are incredibly multicultural - it’s possible even to find great Indian, Japanese or Italian cuisine without leaving the UK! Furthermore, thousands of international students study in the UK each year, and it is an area of the world with a rich, interesting history, as well as an exciting and varied day to day life. Galleries, concerts, theatre, nightlife, and more – the UK has a lot to offer to students looking to enjoy their time studying abroad.

  •          Lots of support for international students

On that note, international students are also offered a lot of support while studying in the UK. There are a wide range of scholarships available. Furthermore, the British Council and the Universities and Colleges Admissions Service can help international students to find out what they need to do in order to study in the UK.

  •          Great location to travel from

Whether it’s the cosmopolitan London life, a rural village, or a student city, the UK has a great range of study locations. Furthermore, in addition to the variety within the UK itself, it is well connected to the rest of Europe (for example by the Chunnel – English Channel Tunnel – to France).
