So, no matter your choice - Science, Mathematics, Engineering, Arts, Business, Humanities or anything else, you will always find a course that you need, in this country.

    be completed in just 1 year, allowing you to save time and money. A typical PG course in the USA or Canada takes 2 years for completion. 3-year bachelor’s Undergraduate courses in the UK usually lasts only 3 years, but in the US you might need 4 years to complete a course at the same level.

  10. To put it eloquently, the British society can be considered

    as melting pot of various cultures and ethnicities. The international student community in the UK is diverse, and you will find students from all over the world in the country. Research conducted by Populas reports a significant improvement in the attitude of the society towards migration as well as non-natives. The report says, and we quote “that Britons are more economically secure, and less anxious about identity change.” The same facts hold when it comes to religious freedom and the society has progressed itself towards a modern secularist viewpoint.

  12. The Study-Life Balance The Higher Education Statistics Agency (HESA) states

    names UK as the second most popular study abroad destination for international students. Most of this is attributed to the UK’s welcoming and tolerant culture. With numerous student bodies, unions and art clubs, universities offer numerous extracurricular options for enrolled students. The country also organises famous music festivals (like Glastonbury) as well as global sporting events and championships. An outdoorsy student never run out of options in the UK, when it comes to places to visit. From Lake District and the Yorkshire moors to the amazing hills and Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales, student life in the UK offers an experience of a lifetime. © AH&Z Associates Ltd. 2021 12

  14. Bolster Your Career UK universities, colleges and higher education institutes

    follow practice-based learning methodologies over bookish spoon feeding. Most universities run a career development or placement cell in order to assist students in preparing for the workplace as well as to find potential employment opportunities. UKVI (UK Visas and Immigration) regulations allow international students to work up to 20 hours per week part-time during the semester. You can work full time during the semester break. This means you will be able to meet some living expenses yourself and also gain valuable work experience and enhances your CV. © AH&Z Associates Ltd. 2021 14
  15. Understanding PSW • Work at any skill level in the

    UK during the stay-back period • PhD candidates are allowed a stay-back of three years. This is seen as an initiative by the UK government to bolster its STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) sector. The Benefits of PSW The novel Graduate Route states that international students who successfully complete their Bachelor’s or Master’s degree in the UK will be eligible for 2 years of post-study work visa (PSW, also known as “stay-back”). • Pursuing a course related to a job that is specified in the shortage occupation list allows you to take advantage of the points-based migration system introduced in the UK. © AH&Z Associates Ltd. 2021 15
