Higher Education in UK

Higher Education in UK

Sifat Mosaddek Bhuiyan

Getting a higher education in Britain is a dream many of us nurture since childhood. The reason is not difficult to comprehend – the UK boasts some of the most internationally renowned universities in the world. Continuously innovating new ways of upgrading education and training, British universities offer students one of the most robust education and skill-development systems one could ask for.
Tasmina Chowdhury, who is studying for MSc in Management with International Business at the University of Chester, says of her experience as  a student there: “Most of my assessments in Bangladesh were based on exams.  In Chester, it is a mixed approach _ I have to sit a few exams, but I also have to write a number of assignments. I use more independent thinking and I have improved my research skills. It can be quite overwhelming at first, but the university offers special study skills classes where students can learn how to approach their assignments.”
As much as eight percent of all global research stem from the UK. But the most important aspect, perhaps, about the UK is its diversity. The UK has people from almost all over the world, which exposes a student to a diverse range of cultures, beliefs and backgrounds. This makes him or her more open to new ideas and innovating thinking.
The UK strictly preserves its traditions, while also pushing for progress. Few other countries have successfully achieved a harmony between the two. A student can learn much about respecting his or her heritage, while making way for modern ways of living. All these factors combined enable the young and curious minds to learn and grow on a personal level.
There are a range of scholarship opportunities available for foreign students to study in Britain. Scholarship schemes, such as Commonwealth Scholarships, Charles Wallace Trust Fund, Hornby Educational Trust Scholarships and others, award deserving candidates with apt funding to support their study expenses. Many universities, like  Manchester University and Hull University, offer their own scholarship privileges to meritorious candidates. Tasmina, for instance, obtained Westminster Scholarship to pursue her degree.
Saif Nazrul, who studied Business and Management at the University of Hull, says universities value merit by providing aid to deserving candidates. “In 2012, I was awarded the Hull University International Undergraduate Scholarship, which was then renewed twice due to continued merit. This meant that I effectively received a full tuition fee waiver while completing my three-year undergraduate degree,” he said.
Aspiring students must keep in mind that given that they develop the required competencies, universities will take them regardless of speculations surrounding admissions. Extracurricular activities like leadership workshops, seminars, and skill development trainings from recognised institutions, like the British Council or Alliance Française, go a long way in enhancing the eligibility of a student to get admission. For postgraduate aspirants, previous research, strong recommendations, and work experience during and briefly after graduation increases possibilities of admission.
An education experience in the UK can be a daunting task, but extremely fulfilling at the same time. It not only makes one more efficient at work, but also more prolific as a thinker. A British degree is highly valued in the workplace, and paves the way to a highly successful career.
Interested candidates can contact the British Council for comprehensive guidance and in-depth information on the opportunities available for them. Moreover, the 19th Education UK Exhibition will to be held in this month which would be a great opportunity for the aspiring students to learn about study options in the UK.
