With traditions of excellence dating back hundreds of years, high class institutions at every corner and much more flexibility than many other countries, the United Kingdom has much to offer international students that other English-speaking countries cannot offer.
A few reasons to make the UK a favorite destination for further education are :

Worldwide Recognition :

The degrees and qualifications from UK higher education institutions are known around the world as high quality and world class. The standard of excellence is set by some of the older universities with recognizable names, like Oxford and Cambridge, but the tradition carries through to many of the universities and colleges throughout the UK. When looking for work in the future, this can be a great selling point in your favor!

Work Opportunities :

International student in the UK are typically allowed to work up to 20 hours a week during school term, and up to full-time when school is out of term. Of course, you should always check with your international advisor at your school before starting any work – you do not want to be in violation of your visa, and rules change all the time. Also, it is not always easy to find a job, so relying on work income to fund your education is not a good idea. Unless you have employment set up through your school before you arrive, you should plan to fund the entire first year of your studies without any employment income.

Suitable Climate Conditions :

The UK has a reputation for having cold, wet and dreary weather. Although this may be true for some times of the year, the UK is actually much better than most think – and can have some great weather during the summer months.

If you wish to get the most out of the UK, then the times to visit are the summer months when days are long (the sun generally rises at 4 am and will set at 9 or 10 pm at night) and you can expect warmer temperatures. Generally, there are four distinct seasons to the UK; summer, winter, spring and autumn.

Eligibility Criteria, Application Procedure and Visa Documents Requirement :

English language proficiency is very important for a student to study in UK.

If English is not a student’s first language, they will be required to successfully complete one of the following:

An English preparatory programme
TOEFL (Test of English as a Foreign Language)
IELTS (International English Language Testing System)
English language GCSE (grade C or above)

If a student’s first language is not English, most institutions will ask for a qualification in English, or they may ask a student to sit a test.

Each course has minimum entry requirements.

Colleges and universities will look at an applicant’s qualifications to see if they meet those standards, but they will also be looking at their overall suitability for the course.

The GRE (Graduate Record Examination) is the entrance test to be taken by the students applying for a master degree in any field other than management (most universities in the UK do not ask for a GRE score). All applicants applying for a master in management or Business Administration major must submit the result of Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT). In addition to these tests, all students whose native language is not English are required to take the Test of English as a foreign language (TOEFL) or the IELTS.

A student requires a Tier 4 visa, with which the following are applicable :

For full-time study (usually at least 15 hours per week of classes)

If the study is for a qualification which is lower than a university degree, the maximum visa length is 3 years

If the study is for a university degree or higher qualification, the maximum visa length is 4 years

If you have this type of visa you can work part-time during term and full-time during your school’s official holidays

You may be able to switch into a Tier 1 (highly skilled) or Tier 2 (skilled worker) visa at the end of your studies

Education Costs is lower :

The cost of education for an international student in the UK can be lower compared to the USA and other countries. Some courses in the USA can be $25,000 plus a year in tuition alone. Tuition for the majority of UK higher education institutions is in the region of £6,000 to £10,000 a year – considerably less!

You can also save a lot of money because your degree will generally take less time to complete in the UK than in other countries. Although four-year programs are increasing in popularity, most degree programs in the UK require a three-year course and a master’s program is typically between one and two years. When you consider the shorter timeframe, the cost will be much lower if you only have to plan for three years instead of four or even five as in many other countries.

Multicultural Nation :

The UK is known for having a multicultural society with all religions and faiths represented in some way. With a racial, ethnic and religious jumble, the UK is very open to new traditions and cultures – something that is a great thing for students from other countries! You can also be sure that a place of worship will be easily accessible for most major religions.

Working after Degree Completion :

Like the USA, students who complete a degree program in England are allowed to apply for a one year extension to their visa to allow them to gain work experience in the UK, without having to obtain a work permit. Students studying in Scotland are now able to extend their visas and work for two years after completing a degree at a Scottish university, helping to make Scotland a particularly attractive destination for international students.

Application Procedure Requirement :

A student has to fill an application form of the institute in which admissions is required.

A completed form has to be sent back to the admissions office, along with supporting documents and fees as required by the institute.

If the application is successful, then the student will receive an admission offer, which he or she can either accept or decline.

The admissions office will also send student authorization and visa forms. It is important to apply to any institution at least before admission dates.

Admission Apllication Documents Required :

Secondary school, college or university reports or transcripts are required

Students from non-English speaking countries will be required to complete the IELTS or TOEFL to prove proficiency.

Work Experience letters (if applicable)

Copy of Passport

Visa Application Documents Required :

A complete an application form.

A valid passport and various original documents (official translations may be required if these are not written in English)

A student has to give their biometrics (a face image and a scan of fingerprints) and have an identity card issued

Then a Confirmation of Acceptance for Studies (CAS) from the school where study has been completed is required.

Then payment of student visa application fee has to be done.
