Is it worth studying in the UK?

The UK is the country of English and the home to over 66 million English speaking people! Hence the best place to practice the language and acquire better proficiency. Better communication skills open up many career opportunities.

Qualifications from UK colleges and Universities are accepted worldwide, whether for employment or career opportunities like further studies and specializations. The information concerning your UK degree will add value to your CV while applying for a job in any industry or business. 

UK universities rank high for the excellence of education, and UK university qualifications are respected everywhere. The UK universities offer a short duration of courses like a Bachelor’s degree in a UK university is for three years. In contrast, it is four years in other countries. UK universities employ highly qualified teachers worldwide, making the course delivery attractive and more beneficial to students.

The world follows the British higher education system due to its modern teaching style and method. UK universities have ultramodern campuses.

Is it expensive to study in the UK?

All are not rich, and not only rich are interested in studying abroad. 

Students from families under middle and lower-middle-class annual income are serious about their higher studies than those from the rich. For most of the rich, education abroad is a kind of education tourism. In contrast, it is a never-again opportunity for many others to prepare for a better life for themselves and their dependent family members.

Is tuition fees regularised in UK universities?

Most of the universities in the UK belong to Governments, and still, they don’t follow a regularised tuition fees system. The UK doesn’t have a regulatory body to control the tuition fees charged by universities and colleges. Hence tuition fees structure is an individual university matter.

Tuition fees in a UK college/university generally depend upon the course and degree level, location, popularity, etc.

The costs vary depending on a student’s nationality. For example, those from an EU/EEU country need to pay a subsidized fee, not the regular tuition fees the others from non-EU countries pay. 

But suppose we consider the average tuition fee for higher education in the UK. In that case, international students have to cover the following fee for tuition alone.

No Course Level The average fee in Pounds (ÂŁ)
Undergraduate bachelor degree
GBP 10,000 to GBP 14,000 per year
Postgraduate master's degree
GBP 10,000 to GBP 14,000 per year
Doctoral degree
GBP 15,000 to GBP 20,000 per year

Cost of living in the UK

In the UK, Halls of Residence is on-campus accommodation facility universities have for international students. Since it is a very affordable option, many international students prefer to choose this accommodation.

But to secure a place here, and therefore prospective students need to book it much in advance. After all, the UK welcomes almost 460,000 international students from around the world every year. 

Students are open to many other options in terms of accommodation. One may decide to live off-campus but need to spend some extra money for;

  • Apartment
  • Basic facilities
  • Council tax
  • Bill payment
  • Tenants agreement etc

Funds for Living Expenses to be shown while applying for a Visa


Living expenses in addition to the cost of accommodation are food, clothing, and other expenses, including health insurance, travelling expenses etc. 

According to UK immigration (UKVI), a minimum of ÂŁ1,334 requires for those who live in London and ÂŁ1,023 outside London. One should provide evidence of funds in position for at least the first nine months.

But international students maintain themselves in GBP 400-500 per month while living in the UK, especially in the 2nd tier cities.

Who can apply to study in the UK?

The requirements to study in the UK depend on the course you prefer to learn and the university.

Generally, universities demand a minimum of 60% in the 12th grade, higher secondary, school examination to apply for an undergraduate degree course. Likewise, Master’s degree courses require at least 55% marks in the Bachelor’s degree examination. 

English proficiency is a must to apply for a place to study in all the UK universities. No less than an overall score of 6.0 in the test of IELTS for Bachelor’s degree courses and 6.5 for Master’s. 

Some UK universities accept student applications without asking for any test certificates, provided they have obtained at least 65-70% marks in the English language in the 12th-grade school examination.

Universities accept only test results of the academic module, not general. General module test is for those who apply for jobs and the migration process.

You may contact us here for more information or a detailed discussion on the phone.

Benefits of studying in the UK

UK’s recently introduced graduate route visa makes it attractive to many international students who stay back work for a couple of years after their studies. Since UK qualifications are accepted by employers and educational institutions worldwide, UK work experience adds value to one’s CV and is practically effective.

 England, Wales, Scotland, Northern Ireland, and cities like Oxford, London, Glasgow are rich in culture and diversity, making the overall experience enriching and memorable.

Where And How To Start With?

Course selection:

Think in detail about an ideal course. Universities expect new applicants to apply for further or higher studies based on the subjects studied in their previous academic courses. 

Some universities in the UK consider work experience while accepting a new student to a course.

Keeping a career plan in mind is also essential.

Be clear about your financial background and affordability as well while deciding about a course.
