With over 150 higher education institutions, including some of the world’s most prestigious and top-ranked universities, the United Kingdom (UK) attracts a wide range of international students from around the world each semester.

Centrally located between Europe and North America, the UK is one of the most popular studies abroad destinations in the world

With a study culture steeped in heritage, as well as strong research credentials, it offers international students an attractive range of higher education institutions and programs.

Together, England, Northern Ireland, Scotland, and Wales make up the United Kingdom. The UK Parliament (located in London) houses representatives from each nation and helps forge a common British identity. 

However, the English, Scottish, Welsh, and Northern Irish cultures are and remain distinguishable from one another.

Each nation has its own traditions in music, cuisine, language, and education. Not only does this help reinforce national identity (as well as fuel intense rivalries on the sports fields and at the tables), but it also makes each nation a must-visit destination in its own right.

English is, of course, the main language of the UK, as well as the mother tongue of 360 million people around the world. It is spoken as a second language by half a billion people and, thanks to the relative ease with which it can be learned, it has become the language of international business, travel, and entertainment.

Studying in the UK is a great way to improve your English skills. There is no shortage of accredited institutions in the UK, with over 600,000 students a year choosing specialist language schools, further education colleges, or universities to improve their English proficiency.
