The United Kingdom has been a favourite destination for Indian students from pre-independence. The number of Indian students travelling to the UK for higher education has been rising, and now we are the third-largest group of international students in the UK. Data from the Universities and Colleges Admissions Service (UCAS) shows that in 2021, despite the pandemic struggles, universities across the UK received 9,930 applications from students from India. It was 30 per cent higher than the number of applications received in 2020, which stood at 7,640.
While many countries have actively campaigned to attract international students, the UK has survived these competitions to remain at the top. So, why the UK for higher studies? The answers are simple. Being a host for international students for generations now, the nation knows how to treat students from abroad and make them feel at home. Besides, it is home to some of the top universities in the world. Graduating from a UK university will help you get recognised internationally by universities, employers and government bodies. However, finding the best programme and institute that suits your needs might be cumbersome. A small mistake could lead you to lifetime disappointment. So, choose wisely.
In this issue, to help Indian students looking for higher education in the UK, we have come up with ’10 Must-Watch Universities and Colleges in the UK for Indian Students – 2022.’ Our expert panel consisting of internationally acclaimed academicians and industry experts has identified some of the best institutions offering cutting-edge higher education to international students, especially from India. We hope our efforts will help Indian students to make informed decisions while choosing their study destination in the UK.
