Study in the UK for 2021, Why study in UK.?

Why study in the UK?

The UK is one of the leading study destinations in the world. With centuries of excellence, world-class institutions on every corner, and far more flexibility than many other countries, the United Kingdom can offer a lot to international students with the help of the best study abroad consultants in Kerala more than any other English-speaking country.

Advantages of studying in the UK

Incredible academic reputation

Britain has a worldwide reputation as a country of learning, and it's easy to see why. This can be seen in the modern world, where British universities occupy a disproportionate number of places in the world ranking of universities. In fact, according to QS World University Rankings 2020, nearly a fifth of the world's top 50 universities are located in the UK!

Culture of hospitality

The UK is a tolerant and multicultural country. You will find people from almost every country in the world in the UK. According to the Statistical Agency for Higher Education (HESA), the UK is the second most popular study destination in the world. In 2017/2018, more than 450,000 international students chose to study at UK universities. So, you can be sure of a warm welcome. 

Broad choice of degrees 

British universities are famous for their various degrees in fields such as art and design, economics and management, healthcare, engineering, and media studies. There are a whopping 2941 degrees available across institutions of higher learning in the UK. Regardless of the subject that interests you, you are sure to find something that fits your needs. Students get the opportunity to develop the skills, knowledge, critical thinking, and connections to drive forward their careers.

Global recognition

The qualifications and degrees from higher education institutions in the UK are recognized as high quality and world-class across the globe. This quality standard is set by some of the oldest universities with well-known names, such as Oxford and Cambridge, but the tradition extends to many universities and colleges across the UK. If you are looking for a job in the future, this can give you an edge over others – employers would give your degree and qualification special consideration. 

Tuition fees in the UK

Tuition fees in the UK are often controversial and prices for local (UK/EU) students have risen significantly in recent years. Now UK and EU students at UK universities have to pay up to £9,250 ($13,050) per year.

Tuition fees for international undergraduate students vary widely, from around £10,000 ($14,130) and up to £38,000 ($53,700) or more for medical degrees. At all levels, the humanities and social sciences tend to cost less, while clinical and laboratory degree programs are significantly more expensive.

Language requirements in the UK

Applicants from countries other than the UK often have to meet certain English language requirements to study in the UK. 

International students need to present one of the following as evidence of their English language proficiency:

IELTS Academic (both the UKVI and non-UKVI tests)


Trinity College London Integrated Skills in English (ISE) – modules ISE II, ISE III or ISE IV

PTE Academic

Cambridge English: Advanced (CAE) and Cambridge English: Proficiency (CPE)

However, few universities in the UK accept international students without IELTS if English was the medium of instruction in their home country or if they have a good English Language score in their higher secondary level or during interviews. 

Professions in high demand in the UK 

The U.K gives international students a post-study work visa that allows them to stay in the U.K for up to 2 years after graduation in order to find work. This gives international students the opportunity to start seeking their international careers in the U.K.

    UK New Student Rule Change


    The Student route and Child Student route will open on 5 October 2020 to the best and brightest international students from across the globe.

    There will be no restriction on the number of students worldwide who can go to higher studies in the UK. This will assist with expanding the all outnumber of worldwide students deciding to concentrate in the UK advanced education framework every year to 600,000 by 2030, as set out in the International Education Strategy distributed in March 2019.

    The new Student route improves on the previous Tier 4 route by making it more streamlined for sponsoring institutions and their students, creating clearer pathways for students, and ensuring the UK remains competitive in a changing global education market.

    • Students will need a total of 70 points to be awarded leave. They will achieve the required points if they can prove that they have an offer from an accredited educational institution, speak English and are able to establish themselves during their education in the UK.
    We also want to assure we retain the most splendid and the most skilled students to continue to offer to the UK post-study, which is why we are starting the Graduate route in the summer of 2021. This additional new route will allow those who have finished a degree at a UK Higher Education provider with a track record of compliance to stay in the UK for two years (three years for PhD graduates) and work at any experience level, and to switch into work routes if they find a suitable job.
    The new "Student Route" visa rule is based on points — a total of 70 — which an applicant is required to secure to gain a visa, a statement from the British High Commission in New Delhi said. The new process is more streamlined for students and their sponsoring organisations, it said.
    Students “will achieve the required points if they can express that they have an offer from an accepted educational organisation, speak English and are able to support themselves during their studies in the UK,"
    Last financial year, nearly 50,000 Indian nationals were granted a study visa – they are the ambassadors of the Living Bridge that connects our countries. Now that we have left the EU, we can introduce this streamlined visa route and the Graduate Route in summer 2021, to ensure the brightest and the best students continue to pick the UK,.
