There's something for everyone in the UK

International students researching their options for study are faced with numerous – often confusing – options and factors to consider. Do I want to live in busy London or would I prefer the rolling hills of Yorkshire, Wales or Scotland? Is a campus based university an option, or do I suit the independent study available in a city centre more? We’re here to help you answer such questions, and ensure that the process of choosing a path for study is smoother and more intuitive for students, parents and counsellors alike.
