Course Faculties

The UK has a comprehensive selection of higher education alternatives to offer students from the UK and around the world, with over 100 universities offering a variety of degree programs. Approximately one-third of all students in the United Kingdom pursue higher education.

Most undergraduate degree programs in the United Kingdom run three years; however, the "sandwich course," which lasts four years and includes one year of work experience, is becoming more popular (generally in your third year).

Graduate or master's programs are usually shorter in duration and start after you finish your undergraduate program. Some specialty degrees, such as medicine, veterinary medicine, and law, require longer, up to five-year curricula.

Course Costing

In general, studying in the United Kingdom is less expensive than studying in the United States at comparable ranking universities. This is due to the fact that degree programs in the United Kingdom are often shorter than those in the United States. Students who pursue a British education may get the best bang for their cash.

In the United Kingdom, undergraduate and graduate tuition costs typically range from $17,000 to $25,000 per academic year (which depends on the exchange rate at the study time). Students often require between $1,300 and $1,600 per month in living expenses (depending on whether you decide to live inside or outside London). Some students prefer to spend their summer holidays in the United Kingdom and budget for their living expenditures.

Things to know
For Nepalese students, the United Kingdom offers a large number of popular scholarships as well as an interesting study experience. They are famed for their high educational standards and are considered one of the best places to live in the world today.
Unless your parents are able to fully fund your education and you continue to be an international student from Nepal, you will most likely have to work to support yourself. Because the UK has a minimum wage policy, no matter what job you have, you will earn a minimum of £118.00 (excluding tax) every week to help pay for your studies and living expenses.
