Nepali students often struggle to decide: Why study in the UK? To help make their decision easier, it is important that they understand the benefits of a UK education system and what this could mean for their future. The UK offers numerous reasons to study there, especially as an international student, which should be carefully considered before any commitment is made.
The cost of studying in Australia varies depending on factors such as the chosen institution, course, and location. On average, international students can expect to pay between Bachelor degree GBP 10,000 to GBP 20,000 per year, Master's degree GBP 10,000 to GBP 20,000 per year and Doctoral degree GBP 15,000 to GBP 24,000 per year. Scholarships and part-time work opportunities can help offset some of these costs.
Across the UK there are five stages of education: early years, primary, secondary, Further Education (FE) and Higher Education (HE). Education is compulsory for all children between the ages of 5 (4 in Northern Ireland) and 16. FE is not compulsory and covers non-advanced education which can be taken at further (including tertiary) education colleges and HE institutions (HEIs). The fifth stage, HE, is study beyond GCE A levels and their equivalent which, for most full-time students, takes place in universities and other HEIs and colleges.
International students aiming to study in the UK can secure financial help from a range of scholarships. These awards are made available by universities, government bodies, private foundations, and other sources. Depending on the scholarship programme, they could provide support for tuition fees, cover living costs, or both. To give you an idea of the different offers available, here is a summary along with information about each one's name, value, and eligibility requirements:
