Every year more than 270,000 students from all around the world come to study in the UK – and the number is growing by 10 per cent a year. At present, most students coming to the UK have to rely on information from their friends, and brief leaflets and booklets supplied by universities. This indispensable guide tells students all they need to know about Britain’s higher education system: the application process, funding, immigration controls, health service, accommodation, study methods and employment opportunities, as well as university life, British customs and habits, and lots of other information on day to day living in the UK.
