UK is home to world’s oldest varsities
UK is home to world’s oldest varsities - We live in a time when the world is viewed as a global village. We now consider our options globally and are cross-influenced by all cultures, whether we travel or not.
International students today have a plethora of options, be it countries such as the US, Canada, the UK, Australia, New Zealand, Ireland and so on, to the new emerging education destinations in various European countries such as Germany, France, the Netherlands, Sweden, Italy and Spain. In addition, Asian countries like Singapore, Malaysia and China are also becoming viable education destinations.
Old is gold
Among all these, the UK still occupies a pivotal spot alongside the US. These are the two most popular study destinations for students from all over the world. Modern education, as it is known in the West, and indeed in our own country, is inspired by educational institutions in the UK. There are large numbers of good quality institutions in the UK, many of which are over 100 years old (of course, Oxford and Cambridge are over 800 years old). Universities all over the world have modelled themselves on the Oxbridge format and developed it in a fashion that suits them.
The research edge
Various inventions that drive today’s world happened inside British universities. For instance, the atom was first split by Rutherford in the University of Manchester in the early 1920s and the first cloning (Dolly the sheep) happened at the Roslin Institute and the biotechnology company - PPL Therapeutics near Edinburgh in Scotland (cloned by Ian Wilmut, Keith Campbell and colleagues). Often, the research is funded by American companies or corporates and ends being known as American research, but it is really happening in British institutions.

Even though like most Western and European countries, Britain too is experiencing an economic downturn at this point of time. However, being the resilient country that it is, it would be amongst the first to bounce back as soon as the global situation turns for the better.
The job scenario
Britain allows 20 hours of work to students during term time and full-time during holidays. However, after finishing your studies, unless you have a job offer, the British system would allow you only four months in addition to the time you have in your student visa to find work.

After studying in Britain, the possibilities of getting employment in the Middle East, Asian countries, Africa, South America are worth exploring. These qualifications are highly regarded.
