The UK has long been home to some of the top-rated universities in the world and the overall quality of its educational system has been a guiding light for other countries to follow. One of the results of this world-renowned educational excellence is that every year thousands of international students apply for visas to study here. If you are one of those international students hoping to study in the UK, Student Connect is here to help.

Reasons Why Studying in the UK is so Popular

There are many good reasons why the best and brightest international students choose to pursue degrees in the UK, including:

  • The impressive number of worldwide top 10 universities, including Oxford, Cambridge, Imperial College London and University College London.
  • World-class facilities ranging from stunning centuries' old libraries to state-of-the-art laboratories, leading-edge media centres, first-class digital infrastructure and more.
  • An unmatched academic tradition exemplified by the extraordinary contributions from people like Isaac Newton, Stephen Hawking, Alan Turing, Tim Berners-Lee and literally scores of Nobel Prize winners.
  • The depth of history on display around virtually every turn. Few places on earth offer visitors - including visiting students - a richer tapestry of art and historical architecture than the UK.
  • The fact that the leading capitals of Europe are only a couple of hours away by air. If you are looking for the ideal base from which to indulge in European culture and traditions, the UK is the place.

The Lure of Practical Learning

Practical learning is an important component of the UK educational experience. Student field trips, internships, and semesters spent studying abroad provide students with the type of well-rounded education that cannot be achieved solely through classroom work. Educational sojourns also provide the international student with invaluable opportunities to socialise and build personal relationships that will last a lifetime.

Outstanding Student Support

Few nations on earth provide the depth and quality of support for international students as the UK. Organisations like Student Connect provide international students with end-to-end support services starting with Student Visa assistance and continuing on through graduate and post-graduate studies. In addition, international students in need of assistance with housing, academics, healthcare, safety or other issues will find university Student Unions to be an invaluable resource.

Studying in the UK is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to indulge in world-class academic and practical experiences the likes of which are not available anywhere else. To learn more, contact Student Connect today.
