United Kingdom

The UK student visa category allows overseas students to study in the UK at various levels, ranging from primary and secondary to post-graduate and vocational. Anyone wishing to study in the UK is required to obtain a student visa before commencing any course.

UK Education history can be traced back for 800 years. UK has been welcoming international students for generations. It has a long experience of looking after your needs, and will give you special support from the moment you apply throughout your time in the country.

Be on your own

In British education importance is on independent work and to develop your own thinking. Classes and lectures are often supplemented by small, informal group tutorials in which students are free to exchange ideas with their teachers.

Quality Assured

The UK operates a unique quality assurance system that ensures accountability in all areas. A qualification from a UK institution is very prestigious, as standards are high at all levels. Universities and colleges are continually assessed by official bodies that grade the standard of their research and teaching.

A valuable cultural experience

UK is a country under change: a vibrant, vital place, alive to new ideas and open to new influences. Diverse ethnic communities find their voice in British society, a standing testimony to its multicultural existence.
Variety and choice - UK universities and colleges offer a huge range of academic and vocational opportunities available at all levels, from further to higher education.

Value for money

One of the most attractive features of studying in UK is that it offers good value for money. Most undergraduate degrees take three years, making them shorter than similar programmes in other countries and very cost-effective, although nowadays there are two year degree programmes offered mostly by UK colleges. Some postgraduate degrees last only one year (as opposed to two in other countries), which means you can finish your degree more quickly and start earning more in the workforce.

One question that I am constantly asked is "How much will a UK education cost me?" The answer, "it costs less then you think"!

The cost of an education in UK consists of two areas: course fees and living costs. Comparing course fees between countries is by no means a clear-cut process. But because courses in UK are often shorter, the total cost of study can be lower. Shorter courses also mean students can realise their earning potential sooner than their counterparts elsewhere. All of which makes UK courses better value for money overall.

The Tier 4 Student (Adult) visa is for students who intend to undertake any post-16 education at a United Kingdom institution in a full time course. The Tier 4 Student (Adult) visa is flexible and allows students to participate in both short and long term courses of at least 6 months in duration.

To qualify, students must have a confirmed offer of enrolment from a licensed education provider (sponsor), be able to maintain and accommodate themselves (or be maintained and accommodated by a host) while they are studying and show that they are able to pay their course fees.
