Sharing is caring :)

As students begin to return to on-campus education, the United Kingdom stands to be one of the most aspirational learning destinations. International students find the UK to be an excellent location especially in this post pandemic world with their enhanced flexibility in accommodating all students. They have announced that Tier 4 international students in the UK and those who have returned to their home country can pursue their program online. They have made it even easier for students to opt for distance learning to attain an accredited degree from the UK moving forward as well.

In addition to this, as restrictions ease around the UK, the opening of facilities and on-ground classes has begun in phases and a return of in-person learning is expected very soon.

#1 Educational Standards

The UK is known to have high regulation in the operations of educational institutions which follow government guidelines thus providing high standards of teaching, support, technological innovation and resources. 

#2 Flexibility

In the UK, the variety of routes an international student can take in order to pursue a career path of their choice is endless. The UK has pathways such as foundation degrees, pre-sessional English courses, advanced diplomas, all the way up to postgraduate degrees. These various options can actually make the whole tenure more cost-effective and in significantly less time too.

#3 Part Time Work While Study

The UK has always been an attractive destination to build a career and generate a wholesome income. As we move into the post-pandemic phase, the opportunities for post-study work visas are being reviewed and revised thus creating a huge potential for work placements in the near future. You can get in touch with Excel Education to find out more details on the latest updates on this.

#4 Public Health

If there’s one thing the pandemic has taught us, it’s that healthcare is of utmost priority for all plans of the future. The NHS, National Health Service, is known to be one of the most advanced and modern healthcare systems. And all international students are covered by it! The Immigration Health Surcharge costs only £470 per year for a student which gives you access to all the facilities.

#5 Employment Opportunities

A total of 81% of graduates in a survey conducted by the Higher Education Statistics Agency (HESA) are in full-time employment or unpaid work approximately 15 months after graduation in the UK. The opportunities for full-time employment through your university placement programs is also on the rise and highly advantageous.
