From being the land of the British Empire to the land of one of the highest numbers of inventions, The United Kingdom has come a long way. It is currently the 8th largest economy in terms of (PPP) purchasing power parity, contributing majorly to the global economy.
United Kingdom due to its abundance of rich knowledge is a home to inventions such as the steam engine, telephone, photography, passenger railway, and also the World Wide Web. As interesting as this sounds, it is even more enthralling to know that greatest personalities of all times like Isaac Newton (greatest scientist who developed theories like gravity), William Shakespeare (father of English literature), Stephen Hawking (a scientist born in Oxford itself, who developed theories around black holes, stars, and universe), J.K. Rowling (author of the very famous Harry Potter series), Tim Berners-Lee (inventor of the World Wide Web), and so many more hail from this kingdom.

Considering this, why should any person aspiring to pursue higher education from abroad not think of studying in the UK?

Still if you require more concrete reasons to study in the United Kingdom; mentioned below are few crucial reasons to look at:

1.World’s Best Universities:

The world’s most well-known universities, the University of Oxford and Cambridge resides in here. This just proves the quality of education UK offers to its students. The popular publications of university rankings like Times’ Higher Education Rankings and QS World Rankings always rank the universities of UK in the top 10 universities of the world due to their academic reputation. Not only is UK a home to world’s best universities but it also offers certificates degrees and qualifications which are internationally recognized. A degree from UK creates a great impression and reputation of you on the recruiters. Thus studying in UK adds a great value to your future as well as life.

2.Affordable Destination to Study:

Even though UK might sounds like an expensive destination to study in, it is really not.
The scholarships and bursaries offered by the institutions make education affordable. One of the major reasons why UK is a cheap and affordable destination as compared to other countries is because it offers short duration courses (3 years of under-graduate program and 1year for a master’s degree). Furthermore, student discount facilities are also provided through National Union of Students.

3.Large Student Population:

UK from many other countries is the most attractive and favored study destination among students from across the globe. Every year the number of students entering the nation is increasing rapidly. Currently there are half a million international students studying in the UK. Studying along with people of different nations exposes one to a number of cultures, ideas and opinions which further expands the individual’s capacity of understanding and sharpens one’s thought processes.

4.Work Opportunity While Studying:

Institutions of UK allow students to work part time for 20 hours a week during term time and full time during vacation. This enables students to gain hands on industry experience. Students can earn around £5- £7 per hour i.e. approximately £375-£525 per month during the term.

5.Free Healthcare During the Course of Your

If the duration of your course is of more than 6 months, you are entitled to the NHS (National Health Service, a publicly funded national healthcare system). As per the NHS, if any medical emergency or for that matter even a requirement arises, one does not have to worry about the financial aspect. Under this service, everything related to your health is taking care of.
