Welcome to StudyUnitedKingdom
Have the adventure of a lifetime while studying in the UK
Studying in the UK is a chance to discover its unique culture, cities and countryside. Across England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, there’s so much for you to experience. Luckily, it is easy to travel around the UK.
The UK's countryside is truly beautiful. You’ll find snow-topped mountains and rolling green hills, flowery meadows and ancient forests, sandy beaches and deserted islands. Hiking and cycling are great ways to take in the breathtaking scenery. The UK is passionate about sport. Most schools, colleges and universities run sport societies – such as football, yoga, dance, cricket, rugby, athletics and hockey. Joining is a great way to make friends. For adrenaline junkies, there are hundreds of outdoor activities you can try across the UK – such as surfing, mountain climbing, diving, kiting, horse riding, abseiling and even skiing! While you recover from your exercise, you can watch world-class sport events, such as Wimbledon, the FA Cup final or the Grand National horse race.
Aside from sport, music is the UK’s other national obsession. People love going to concerts to see famous bands, or to discover weird and wonderful new artists. Across the UK, you will find hundreds of live music gigs each day – from pop, rock and dance to classical, folk, metal and jazz. In summer, nothing beats camping at a music festival. Grab your tent, your suncream and your raincoat (just in case). For a unique experience, try one of the UK’s many folk festivals for traditional music.
If you are a history lover, the UK is the place to be. Across England, Wales, Northern Ireland and Scotland you can see history all around you, and you are never far from an ancient castle, grand country house or picturesque old village. There are hundreds of outstanding museums and art galleries too, hosting world-famous exhibitions and collections. Many are free of charge or offer good discounts for students.
If you’re interested in theatre and the performing arts, you will love events like the Edinburgh Festival in Scotland or Eisteddfod in Wales. No trip to the UK is complete, however, without going to a comedy night. Here you can experience the UK’s somewhat eccentric sense of humour – just don’t sit in the front row unless you want to become part of the act!

Universities Minister Jo Johnson has also announced that EU students beginning in 2017/18 will continue to be eligible for “home fee status”, that is to be charged the same tuition fees as UK students, for the duration of their studies.
UK Home Secretary signals a two-tiered visa systemread more... 12-10-2016
The British government is considering further restrictions on student visas in line with its often-stated goal to reduce net migration to the UK. In a 4 October speech at the Conservative Party Conference in Birmingham, Home Secretary Amber Rudd said that the government will shortly open consultations on student immigration policy.
Ms Rudd also indicated for the first time that visa processes for foreign students could be tied to the quality of the institutions to which they have applied – that is, applicants to top-ranked institutions may enjoy more streamlined processes while those applying to lower-ranked universities could face new restrictions.
