Reasons To Study in UK
Study in UK From Nepal
The United Kingdom is regarded as one of the best destinations for higher education and rightfully so. One of the leading countries in the world is also leading in education with Universities like the University of Oxford, University of Cambridge, Imperial College London, UCL, and London School of Economics and political science to name a few. With over 100 Universities and about 100,000 international students choosing the UK for higher education, it is second only to the USA in terms of hosting international students from all over the world.
Studying in the UK was a privilege only offered to the Royal Family of Nepal and their closed relatives in the past. However, things have changed and a huge number of Nepalese students are choosing the UK for their Higher education these days. For almost a decade, the UK was not considered to be an attractive destination with limited possibilities after completion of the degree but with PSW been re-instated the prospect of living and working in the UK seems attractive.
Graduates from UK universities are highly regarded and sought after by top companies globally and one of the oldest education system prepares the students to thrive under any circumstances may it be personal or professional life.
Financing the education is one of the major factors why the UK could be the best destination for higher education. 3 years for Bachelors and just 1 year for Masters will definitely save 1 year worth of tuition and fees and this cannot be said in the case of USA or Canada. Also, the possibility of working 20 hours a week will definitely decrease the financial burden for the students. To sum things up, below are a dozen of reasons to choose UK for Nepalese students:
1. More than 100,000 international students in a year means UK is very open to different culture making it the 2nd most preferred destination for international students globally. With a strong Nepali community it is easier for Nepalese students to get adjusted.
2. UK has 4 out of the top 10 Universities in the world.
3. Quality education, up to date curriculum, classes taught by professionals, and state of art facility; UK has the perfect ingredients for the recipe of success.
4. 2 years’ worth of Post Study Work Permit to provide you with an opportunity to build a professional carrier.
5. Academic support system, research opportunities at all level of education, career development centers and internship possibilities to prepare you for life after studies will surely do no harm to develop you both personally and professionally.
6. Affordability could be a concern for studding in any country and to offset those students can work for 20 hours a week during college and full time during the vacations. Also, Scholarships and Bursaries are available for deserving students.
7. Study whatever you want, schedule your classes the way you want, pick a subject of your choice.
8. Some programs offer industrial placement options so you can land a job before you even finish your studies.
9. Stay ahead of the pack by finishing your studies 1 year faster than your friends here in Nepal or in most of the other countries.
10. Opportunity to switch your visa type from T4 to T2.
11. Gateway to most of the European countries.
Before You Apply
After you decide on going to the UK there are few things that you need to be exploring and be aware of. The University you are going to, admissions requirements, SoP, Scholarships, applications deadline, and many more.
Back in 2009 huge number of Nepalese students chose to study in the UK and regretted the decision as most students opted for private colleges which were closed by the time students reached there. Make sure you only apply to universities and colleges that are considered a “Recognized Body” as these are the higher learning institutions.
Admissions requirements vary from one university to another. Lot of students apply without properly checking the admissions requirement specially the language proficiency. Make sure to check the latest requirements on the official website to ensure your efforts do not go in vain. Usual requirements are the academic, financial and test scores.
LoR’s may not be mandatory for few undergraduate programs but could be important for others. Make sure if the LoRs are required and if they have a specific kind of LoR based on the program of your interest.
You cannot apply for a visa until you complete all your financial documents. We advise you to work on the required financial documents after you are admitted to the university ahead of time.
Industrial placement is a part of the program itself so while looking for a university look for a program that offers industrial placement and make sure to prepare yourself for a demanding carrer after the completion of your studies. Learn better about the demands of a work place, challenges and ways to overcome those challenges.

Suggestions to Nepalese students seeking to study in the UK

Part time job in the UK: Edwise suggestions
If you don’t want to be behind other and get hard time of not finding the part time job while in the UK, you can do a couple of things while you are in Nepal. Try to gain as much experience in the working environment such as: coffee training, cook training, waiter and waitress training, housekeeping training, etc. these are the most likely jobs. Places like McDonalds, KFC, Pizza Hut, Burger King, Departmental stores like Sainsburys, Tesco, Asda are the places where you can look for part time jobs. You can always look for the better options as you gain some experience and know the working culture of the United Kingdom.
During the application process, you can make a reference to social media, blogs, search engines, consultancies or any internet information, but it is crucial for you to make sure you’re using the accurate source. You will need to thoroughly check the credentials of the consultancies, their success history, transparency of the service fees and the profiles of the consultants before you choose any. By law, Nepalese consultants don’t need to have any professional credentials to offer consulting services.
Using EdUSA, the U.S. Government Agency is a great place for the ones who are smart enough to develop an understanding of the process using S abundant resources they house. We strongly advise students to use the EdUSA/USEF for transcript attestation, university information sessions, visa info sessions, and pre-departure sessions.

1. Can I apply to the UK without IELTS?
This question has to be right there at the top! Almost all the students inquire about it. The answer would be “Yes, you can”. There are various ways to prove your English language requirements demanded by the United Kingdom Visa and Immigration (UKVI); for instance, you can opt in for PTE or TOEFL.
Besides that, there are some Universities that accept your high school grades, whilst some Universities accept their own test as well. However, IELTS or PTE expands your choices as they are accepted in most of the Universities, while other tests (or marks of high school) are accepted by a very few Universities.
2. What are my accommodation options?
Of course, you are going to a new place and not all of us are blessed with family members or relatives that we can rely in abroad. This question bugs a lot of international students and are worried if they have to spend their first few weeks in the street or a park bench.
Accommodation has to be managed prior to entering in the UK; there are usually two options – On campus accommodation, or private accommodation. Dormitories with bills included (electricity, water and internet) are available in the University itself, while flats or apartments can also be pre-booked. Some of the Universities also provide an airport pick up option for additional charges (So you don’t have to look for park benches anymore).
3. Can under 18s apply?
By the time you finish your high school, most of you are barely 18, and there are some of them that are 17 or 16 and a half maybe. The answer is “yes, you can”, however, you will require a written consent from your parents/guardians that you can live and travel independently along with the details of your guardians in the UK.
4. How much bank balance do I require for a UK student visa?
Along with meeting the academic and English language requirement, you will also need to meet the financial requirements demanded by the UKVI. You will require a 28 days’ bank statement, which should cover your cost of tuition after paying the initial deposit, and your cost of living for 9 months (because 3 months are usually summer breaks in the UK where you can work full time).
The statement must not be more than 31 days old while applying for the visa. The cost of living for London is £1,334/month, and 1,023/month for outside London.
Tuition fees: £13,000
Initial payment (required by most universities to accept the offer): £3,000
Remaining tuition fee: £13,000 – 3,000 = £10,000
Cost of living (let’s take a London University for example): £1,334 X 9 = £12,006
Require amount in the bank statement = Remaining tuition fees + Cost of Living
=£22,006 for 28 days
5. Can I extend my stay after studies?
If you had asked this question before June 2020, the answer would be difficult to answer; however, now the government of UK has announced that you will be eligible to extend your stay for at least 2 years with work permit (which is named as graduate visa).
During this period, you will not have any restrictions on work hours to work throughout the UK, and you can travel to home (or somewhere else) and come back to the UK during this period. The only requirement you need to meet is that you need pass your course.
