United Kingdom Flag

The United Kingdom is host to some of the world's finest universities. Whether they study in London, the English countryside, or the Scottish north, students that choose the United Kingdom as their destination receive an excellent education at historical and renowned universities.

Studying in the United Kingdom

The United Kingdom has a long-standing tradition of exceptional higher education, not only in the well-known British institutions such as the University of Oxford or the University of Cambridge, but at the hundreds of other universities across the cities and hillsides of England, Scotland, and Wales.

Students and their families choose the United Kingdom because of its traditional Anglophone system and the geographical proximity to Europe. Its universities offer respected and internationally recognised degrees across a broad range of subjects, and the tuition costs are often lower than at comparable institutions in the United States. The UK is the destination for over 100 000 international students every year, and you can be one of them.
