Textbooks and Passports: “Certain overseas universities offer qualifications which UK employers frown upon and do not recognise. You would be investing time and money and that is why it is crucial to research thoroughly your choices.”
Universities UK Blog: “It is true that higher education is becoming increasingly global; there are growing numbers of overseas students who choose to study in the UK. This is hardly surprising given the UK’s leading reputation for higher education and the global rise in the numbers of tertiary students wanting to study outside of their home nation.”
Universities UK Blog: “Every year, Universities UK produces an annual collection of facts and figures on UK higher education institutions. This publication always proves very popular, as it presents a vast range of information in bite size chunks, providing readers with an overview of higher education in the UK, covering the student population, staff population and finances.”
Textbooks and Passports: “UK students are at a great disadvantage for not participating more in international study programmes. Those who go abroad focus on having fun rather than improving their career prospects.”
The Vintage Postcard: “The only memories I have of England are a) airline losing my luggage, b) walking to my hotel on a cobblestone street, and c) riding the tube, (which I actually enjoyed greatly). But of course, this won’t do. England makes it to the top of places I must revisit. And I must visit it right.”
Samantha’s London Travels: “After walking around Kensington the first couple of days, I was happy to discover some of the landmarks of London, including the famous Westminster Abbey and the London Eye, and was quite pleased BU had sent us on this excursion.”
Textbooks and Passports: “Textbooks and Passports went through this year’s list and plotted all of the non-UK universities in the THE top 50 on a map. We also added the average tuition fees for international undergraduates for the academic year 2011-2012..”
Global Higher Ed: “A report by the Higher Education Policy Institute (HEPI) questioning the implications of the Bologna Process on the UK’s international student market set of alarm bells in the UK media last week. For example, the Guardian (May 22) declared, “UK universities at risk of losing foreign students as a result of the Bologna process.”
