One of the reasons employers value UK qualifications is the focus on skills for the workplace. The UK ranks second in the world for University-industry collaboration (Annual Innovation Report, BIS, 2012).
Many UK courses are designed in partnership with businesses and are taught by industry professionals, so you will gain real experience for your future career. Some courses give you the chance to do a work placement as part of your studies too, working for a business, charity or public sector organisation (check your visa status allows you to do this).
The UK’s location between the American and Asian time zones has helped it to become a global hub for business and industry. Many international financial institutions have their European or global headquarters here, so the opportunities for students and employees to build their experience are unparalleled. The UK is also the number 1 destination for inward investment in Europe (UKTI).
The UK teaching style helps you to develop attributes which are in high demand from employers worldwide – attributes such as creativity, innovation, teamwork and leadership.
The UK is a multicultural society, and UK campuses are international communities. By studying in the UK you’ll gain an international perspective, learn about new cultures and socialise with students and teachers from around the world – valuable experience for a career in an international company.
Many careers require professional qualifications. The UK offers thousands of courses leading to internationally-recognised qualifications in fields such as Law, Accountancy, Medicine, Engineering, Childcare, Teaching, Marketing and more.
English language skills are a real boost to your career prospects. The UK is the world’s most popular destination for English language courses, catering for all ages and abilities. On a UK course, you will be immersed in the language and should find that your skills improve rapidly. You can even choose a course in business English, or English for specific careers such as Law, Technology or Engineering.
Many UK higher education courses are shorter than in other countries. For example, bachelor’s degrees typically take three years to complete (compared to four years or more in many countries), and most master’s degrees take just one year. This means you can start your career sooner, getting a head start with real professional experience.
We comply with University and College entry requirements as they are different from course to course. Student Care Bureau can advise you on a range of courses, private as well as those offered by UK Universities. Students who have completed part of their studies in their own country can apply for entry to a UK educational provider.
