 Flow of Indian students to the UK increases  

An educational fair at the British Council in MumbaiThere has been a consistent increase in the number of Indian students going abroad for higher education. The majority of the students prefer to go to the United States, United Kingdom, Australia and New Zealand. The main reason behind studying abroad is access to advanced technology and individual attention from professors, besides research based working options, internship programmes, and an up-to-date curriculum. Most importantly studying abroad opens doors for future growth at an international level.

Of late, the United Kingdom has become one of the favourite choices of Indian students going abroad for their studies. The single biggest reason for choosing the UK is the undisputed quality of education received there. In fact, a UK degree is practically a passport to brighter career prospects and higher earnings anywhere in the world. The qualification gained there is recognised worldwide. In Mumbai, the British Council is actively involved in organising seminars at which prospective students can meet teams from Universities in the United Kingdom and discuss their future plans.

A UK education is a 'world class education' in every sense of the term. " I am looking forward for a post graduation degree, and chose UK, as the course and qualification will be recognised world over," says Shweta, an MBBS degree holder from Mumbai University.

Studying abroad demands outflow of a large amount of money. In the UK, courses are more intensive than anywhere else in the world. For example, a degree course would be completed in three years instead of four years. As the courses are shorter, one would need fewer funds to finance one's stay. Courses in the UK are comprehensive and well-planned. They provide academic qualifications which are of use in the real world. All the UK universities have strong links with different universities the worldover and with the business world. " All the courses are periodically analysed by our educational expert team. Most of the courses are gaining popularity all over the world, especially the technical courses, " said Niloy Bose, Director, International office, Loughborough University, UK.

Today, the United Kingdom is a unique mix of youth, tradition, energy, vision and excitement. It is also the best place to enjoy the best of theatre and music. Most of the campuses have well equipped sports facilities. The UK is definitely the perfect gateway to the rest of Europe. The education establishments makes sure that their overseas students are made to feel at home from the moment they arrive.

" I have lived in the UK for the past 24 years, and I think it is one of the coolest places in the world", says Altaf Gharda, a successful NRI, who came to the UK as a student. "One tends to fall in love with the scenic beauty and the ambiance. When I first came here, I never thought of settling down here, then the affinity towards the UK grew so strong that after completing my studies, I decided to stay here forever,"adds Gharda.

UK universities have varied courses. Depending on your interest or your particular field you can choose the course you wish to do. There are so many vocational courses that you will find one of your choice. Before deciding on a course, it is very important to choose the right university to study in. You need to ask whether you have the required entrance requirements needed for a particular course, because the entry level requirement varies from course to course.
