A traditionally brilliant UK education

The wide variety of subjects, courses
and degrees you can study in the UK have one thing in common: they can
offer you a qualification recognised around the world. However, there
are many things that need to be taken into consideration when selecting
a course or institution to meet your requirements and the British
Council can assist you in several ways with advice and information.

The Education UK website is a key source of information for any
international student. You'll find course subject information alongside
profiles of UK universities and colleges, covering everything from their
facilities and expertise to their location and contact details. As well
as this, you'll discover details on other areas which you will need to
take into consideration, including accommodation details, travel
information, career prospects and even ways to contact home while you're
making the most of your time in the UK.

'I had always hoped to study in
a beautiful country with a lot of history. Austria is like this too, but
I wanted to combine this kind of environment with an opportunity to
absorb a different culture, and also improve my English.

In my free time, I really enjoy exploring the great selection of
authentic, cosy cafes and pubs that Oxford, where I live, has to offer.
I love walking round the covered market on a Saturday morning, and going
for walks on Port Meadow on Sunday afternoons.

Although Oxford is a wonderful place to study, it is quite small. What's
great is being within a good distance of cities like Birmingham and
London, which are easy to get to on a weekend if you want to have a
serious shopping day or big night out.'
