Why Study in the United Kingdom?

The UK hosts some of the world’s leading universities in research and innovation. Every university located in the UK is very welcoming towards Bangladeshi students. Reputed and quality international education at affordable costs makes it the ideal choice among international students.

A British degree is widely recognized as equal to one from the United States, Australia, Canada, or Japan. British universities consistently do well in international rankings. The cost of living in the UK is also seriously affordable compared to most other top destinations for international students. Bangladeshi students are eligible to work up to 20 hours per week during academic sessions and full-time during scheduled breaks like winter vacation. Most students don’t need a work permit to work while they study, whether their job is on campus or off campus. Your study permit will indicate whether you’re allowed to work off campus.

Tuition Fees

In general, tuition fees in the UK are less expensive compared to other major destinations like the US and Australia. Average tuition fees in the UK for international undergraduate students start at about GBP 10,000 (about USD 13,000) per year. Universities in the UK set their own fees, and the cost of study also depends on the type of course and the subject.

Visa Requirements

Tier 4 visa is needed to study in the UK. The visa will be issued against Confirmation of Acceptance for Studies (CAS) which can be obtained from the university after meeting all the admission requirements and depositing an initial amount.

Working as a Student

Working part-time during studies is possible. A student can work up to 20 hours per week part-time in almost every sector except as Sports person or Dentist/Doctor. A student can also work full-time in similar roles during vacations.

Studied Abroad: Student Stories

“Hi, this is Asif Hossain, I graduated from University of Manchester in 2016. Currently I’m a Lecturer at North South University in Dhaka and CEO of my company PrintworksBD. I am a tech enthusiast who reads self-help books and listen to podcasts during my leisure time."

How did your foreign degree contribute towards your current profession?

“I studied in Innovation Management & Entrepreneurship. And that’s the subject that I am teaching right now at the university. It helps me to highlight all the new theories and examples of entrepreneurship that I learned in Manchester and bring something new to the table."

In your opinion, what are the real benefits of studying abroad as compared to studying in Bangladesh?

“We got to deal with a lot of practical stuff. Something which highly lacks in Bangladesh. When you deal with things practically; you get to remember it forever. Whereas, in Bangladesh, mostly its learning from the book only."

What tips would you give to ambitious students who would like to study abroad?

“Do your research, look into your options, take help from agencies if required – we all did. And just go for it. Initially it might seem like a difficult option. But trust me, it’s once in a lifetime experience you are never going to regret."
