To study in a foreign university requires a large amount of tuition fees but the UK is one of the most affordable places to study. This is why the UK has become one of the hottest study destinations in the whole world.
Tuition Fees: Tuition fees vary from university or the location of the university. Usually for undergraduate programs students have to pay a minimum 10,000 Euro per year for three years courses unless it’s a specialized course like clinical programs for doctors then it’s a different case. Most of the post graduate programs it takes almost 14,000 euros to complete the course.
Financial Aid: For international students sometimes it becomes difficult for them to pay the whole tuition fees due to the high living expenses in the cities and limited working hours for international students. So financial aid can play an important role in your dream university. Scholarships vary from university to university, most of the university offers International Student Scholarships based on students’ academic merit and an excellent IELTS/TOEFL score will make you a strong candidate for scholarship. International students can achieve 20-30% scholarships before starting their course. For financial aid many universities and banks provide student loans based on the students profile.
VISA Information: After getting an offer letter from university an international student must have to apply for a visa to study in the UK. For visa information university will guide the student how and where to apply for a UK visa. Also the UK embassy of your home country can guide you through the visa process. After getting a student visa from the embassy you will get the permission to enroll in a UK university and you will fly out to your destination.
Students Accommodation: For international students after coming to the UK must find a good accommodation to experience a UK life. It literally depends on you where you decide to stay. Most of the international students choose accommodation close to university so that they can easily travel there also there are no right or wrong decisions. So here are the options as an international student you can choose:
- University dorm rooms.
- Bachelor rooms.
- Or Sublet with another family.
For university accommodation a student must have to submit an application after getting enrolled at the university. Moreover, accommodation expenses depend on the location of the house. If it’s in a city like Central London the rent will be higher and if it’s in the outside of the city area house rent will be much lower but then you would have to travel before coming to the city.
Post work Visa in the UK: After completing under graduate or graduation if you want to work in the UK based on the current visa policy you will get two years’ work permit to find the most suitable job for you in the UK. So after getting the post work visa you can work as a full time employee. The UK offers lots of work opportunities for every academic criteria student so it’s not that hard to find a full time job in the UK. After working a few years as a full time employee you can also apply for Permanent Residents or PR to settle down in the UK but you must have to fulfill all the eligibility criteria before submitting the application for PR.
