Being in Britain

Posted on Saturday, July 2, 2011

UK has been one of the original choice for Indian students, and remains popular to this date especially among undergraduate students. Karan Gupta highlights the features of the systems of study

The UK for the past few years has been vying Indian students with scholarships and work permits. The UK education system is very similar to ours and students can earn most bachelor’s degrees in three years. On an average, the tuition fee in a UK university is about 15,000 pounds per annum.

If you stay in an expensive city like London, your living costs are bound to be high. With the current Rupee-Pound exchange rate, the UK may seem like an expensive proposition, but keeping in mind the duration of the programme, the UK may not be that expensive in the long run.

For admissions to the bachelor’s degree programme, students need the TOEFL or IELTS only. Having a SAT score may not enhance your profile.

Keep in mind that some UK universities such as Oxford and Cambridge may insist that applicants have A levels or IB qualifications before they are admitted to the college. In such colleges, the HSC may not suffice.
Application procedure

The good news is that the UK application process is the simplest of all developed countries. After you have been through the mind-boggling process of applying to US universities, you will find the UK application child’s play. Undergraduate students or students applying for bachelor’s degrees, only need to fill out one UCAS or Universities and Colleges Admission Service form.
