UK universities have an excellent reputation with a good number in the top 200 worldwide rankings. They welcome international students and have educated students from all over the world for decades.
The UK has a rich history and offers a good mix of cities, villages and countryside destinations to visit. It’s also close to continental Europe so can be a good base for visiting countries there – even if it’s only for a long weekend.
Undergraduate degrees in the UK typically take three years to complete except in Scotland where it takes four years. In 2019, according to the Institute of International Education, some 496-thousand international students were studying in the UK making it the second most popular choice for foreign students that year after the US.
UK universities offer a wide range of courses and programmes and are likely to present a top option depending on what you want to study.
