Why Study in UK?

World Renowned Education Centre

The United Kingdom (UK) is one of the main economic hubs of Europe. It also holds the same reputation regarding quality education offered in its four state countries including Wales, Scotland, Britain and Northern Ireland. The UK is one of the most exciting places that an international student may choose to further their education qualifications.

Plenty of Courses

International students, mostly those coming from countries that do not speak English will greatly enhance their skills in the language, which is quite important in today's global jobs ring.

History of Cultural Diversity

UK universities were among the first in the world to admit international students. The trend continues to increase with more than 100,000 international students being admitted in British universities alone. The welcoming, diverse cultural setting and easy adaptability of life make it easy for international students to fit in quickly. The UK is defined as a place of contrast with some top, highly advanced cosmopolitan cities such as London and Cardiff to historic country side cities such as Yorkshire. Undergraduate, graduate, and post-graduate curriculums tend to be shorter as compared to what is offered in other countries. Most undergraduate programs, for instance, take a maximum of three years as opposed to the four years other countries offer. This significantly reduces the costs and also opens up students to the job market earlier which can only mean more experience added.

Work and Study

Foreign students in the UK are allowed to find jobs and get hired within the course of their education. When the term is on, the maximum time allowed for working is 20hours for each week. When institutions have closed for holidays, international students are allowed to work full time. Students with a humble background may apply for financial assistance with their tuition fees. All these factors put together to make the UK one of the best destinations for international students who are particularly keen on the quality of education as they are of its cost.

Will I get refund if my visa is refused

If your visa is refused and you have paid a deposit to your institution for tuition fees then you will receive a refund of the deposit when you send the institution a copy of your visa refusal letter from the High Commission. A few institutions deduct a small amount usually no more than £ 100 for processing the refund payment. 

How can I finance my studies?

As compared to the cost of studying in India only, going abroad can seem to be steeply expensive. However one must keep the possible returns in mind which are in the form of quality of education, international exposure and boost to ones career when evaluating the costs of studying abroad. A student can rely on sources like family funds, bank loans, scholarships, bursaries, sponsorships etc to provide for funds required by him.

  • Bank Loans 
    Most nationalized banks offer students loans at competitive rates for considerable time periods which may enable a larger section of students to go and study abroad. They will ask for a collateral security to be pledged. You can even consider the possibility of an international bank loan. Kindly ask your Sowrya counsellor for further details.
  • Educational Trusts / Institutes
    Such organizations may also be able to help the student to fund his studies abroad.
  • Sponsorships
    A blood relative is always preferred but other sponsors can also help to fund your education in the UK provided a logical explanation is given as to why he is willing to sponsor you.

Should I pay a Deposit?
Some universities require the students to pay part of the tuition fees in advance in order to reserve a place for them in the university. In any case we recommend that all students should make a deposit payment as it facilitates in getting a student visa.

How are the Universities rated?
British Universities do not have a formal ranking system but the government does take the responsibility to monitor and control the quality of education provided by each university
