'Study in the way that suits your lifestyle and budget with a UK qualification in your own country. You can benefit from a UK education without leaving your job, disrupting your family, or spending a long time away from home. It also means you can take advantage of the UK’s innovative learning techniques and get a great start to your future.'
UK colleges and universities have a long history of providing education to students based overseas. Virtually all UK universities are involved in some form of overseas delivery of their qualifications. They may have twinning arrangements with institutions in your own country, where you can use their facilities, libraries and other resources.
All UK qualifications have to meet rigorous standards, and this applies just as much to ones you study in your own country as those you'd take in the UK. You'll be expected to meet the same standards as students studying in the UK and your work will be checked regularly to make sure this is the case. Your UK qualification is a mark of quality, proving to future employers that you're up to whatever task they set.
UK study choices to suit your needs
Study a UK qualification in your own country and you can fit your studies around other commitments. If you're a busy manager you could choose a course that involves little or no contact with teaching staff and work at your own pace. Or you may prefer a part-time course that's delivered through a local college, where you can meet lecturers and tutors face-to-face to discuss your studies. If you don't have other commitments, you may prefer to go into college every day.
What UK qualifications are available to study?
There is a wide variety of courses and programmes available to study. The choice will vary depending on which country you are studying in.
- Undergraduate courses
- International foundation and pre-master's programmes
