There are a lot of advantages to studying in the United Kingdom aside from a UK degree that is well respected by employers throughout the world. Arguably the most beneficial is that you get a chance to learn English in England, the birth place of this language. It gives you a wonderful opportunity to master the local dialect and benefit from the first hand experience of the native speakers. There are actually many language colleges in the UK with many in each city that extend excellent English language skills to interested students, so you are guaranteed to be within close proximity one wherever you are located.

Relocating to a different country is a difficult process, learning the language, adapting to the local customs and culture and if that’s not hard enough you’ve also got a full-time degree to do! But whilst it’s easy to look at this as a scary process, it’s also a lot of fun - an exciting new challenge where you experience new things in a new environment. Learning English will help you feel much more at home and comfortable in the UK and will also open many doors for you both in terms of making new friends in the country but also when it comes to applying for new jobs. Having a second language, especially one as major as English, is a qualification in itself, if you speak two languages and have a world-class degree - you will be hugely popular with employers!

Language schools in the UK follow a high academic excellence path through its internationally recognised English degrees. In addition, almost all of the English language schools in the UK are accredited by renowned accreditation bodies like BAC, AISC etc which when putting your qualifications on your CV, will be hugely beneficial and will be looked on very well by employers.

There’s no better place to learn English than in England itself, the home of the language. A normal course in English may usually take you several years to become fluent but when attending the same course but in the UK, you will pick it up significantly quicker because you are immersing yourself in the language and the culture. It would not simply be a case of learning in class and then leaving it until next week, you will be using and practicing what you have learnt on a daily basis as you navigate your new home. Even little things like going to the shops, eating at a restaurant etc all help international students studying the language, develop their knowledge of it much quicker than a normal class would.
