Study in the UK
UK university entry and student life
What does the UK offer prospective university applicants?
The UK is world renowned for its diverse range of universities delivering academic excellence. If you choose to study in the UK, gaining a degree from a UK university is prestigious and well regarded by employers. In the Times Higher Education World rankings, UK universities have three of the top ten universities. Undertaking your education in the UK will help your longer-term professional development.
A UK education offers teaching standards that are regularly assessed by professionals and students alike. The Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF) allows you to quickly review the teaching standards of UK based universities. Many UK universities also have a reputation for undertaking world class research, which feeds directly into teaching programmes from the diverse interests of lecturers at universities.
Recent comparisons of UK and US research suggests that findings from research projects undertaken in UK universities are getting cited more than research from US universities. This reflects the enhanced reputation for research undertaken in the UK. UK universities place an emphasis on helping students learn independently. They encourage a student’s ability to think critically, and to analyse and interpret information in their essays and reports. These skills make graduates with a UK education highly employable.
