Graduate in less time

The great news is that UK courses are generally shorter than in many other countries but no less respected, so you get a valuable degree in even less time than it might take at home.

So by studying in the UK, not only do you open up your world to an international study experience, but you’re likely get to where you want to be even more quickly than at home. And let’s not forget that this means you’re likely to save on tuition fees and living costs too.

And while you’re studying here, you’ll also have the chance to work for up to 20 hours per week on your student visa. Some UK work experience will look impressive on your resume as employers value graduates with international work and study experience.
