WHY THE UK
The UK is the 5th most thriving economy in the world. It is the 2nd largest group of international higher education students in the world. (International Education Strategy 2019). The UK offers world-class education and has a global reputation and is considered prestigious in the world. The UK has 18 universities in the world’s top 100 of which 4 are in the world’s top 10. (QS World University Rankings 2020)
The UK recognises the contribution of international students to the socio-economic aspect of the country. International students bring with them innovative thinking and the cultural diversity which plays a major factor in enhancing the learning experience of home students.
Degree courses in the UK are typically shorter than in other countries, making studying in the UK more cost-effective when compared to countries such as the USA.
Work and study in the UK
If you are studying a full-time course at a degree level, you are legally allowed to work 20 hours per week during term-time and up to 40 hours a week during term holidays.
Increasing international student recruitment
From 2017 to 2018 over 460,000 students were granted visas to study in the UK. The country has an ambitious target of increasing its international student recruitment to 600,000 by 2030.
Cost-effective tuition fees, robust scholarship and bursary options and strong infrastructure for learning and research are resulting in international enrolment in UK universities expanding by 3.6% year on year.
Schemes for international students to stay
Through the Post Study Work Visa schemes, the students can stay in the country for a period of 2 years to get work experiences in their chosen fields. Students can also stay on through the innovator or the start-up visa schemes by setting up enterprises in the UK.

OUR CEO's MESSAGE
I firmly believe that to accelerate your global career prospects an international degree is vital. In 2003, I came to the UK to study my MBA to enhance my career opportunities. This was a life changing experience which gave me new perspectives on culture, language skills, a positive learning attitude. Most importantly it gave me a real time experience of an international work environment and helped me build great networks with professionals from around the world.
The UK has been the top destination for higher studies in the world and offers a sea of opportunities for international talent where I stand testimony to this. I came to this country to study and today, I am a serial entrepreneur and the first Indian born woman to be elected as a Councillor in the City of London Corporation in its 950 years of history. After Brexit, the country has brought in significant changes to its visa systems especially to international students where students can stay up to two years and work full-time after their studies under the Post Study Work (PSW) visa scheme.
I have personally undergone this experience of what it is like to study in the UK and the challenges international students face.
