Tuition Fees and living cost

The favorable decision is to opt to study in the United Kingdom. There is an ease in the education system in studying different subject electives. The validation of the UK degree is recognized globally, the queen land welcomes students from all parts of the world to give its international students global learning through the experiential methodology that enables students to experience first-hand exposure to working in groups and enhance their learning capabilities. UK degree gives your resume an extra edge over others and helps you grow as an international candidate.

 

Two broad categories of Tuition fees are charged by universities in the UK.  

  1. UK/ EU students that are considered home student 
  1. International Students who are non-UK/ EU students 

While we consider the two broader categories to understand the bifurcation of students’ tuition fees in the UK, we may also need to understand the tuition fees varies among institutions and universities depending on their wish to charge.  

 

For UK/EU students we can consider the broad bracket that is charged by the UK institutions is 9250 pounds for undergraduate degree courses if you are applying to study in England. The tuition fee in Englandares 9250 pounds per year. The tuition fee in Wales is 9000 pounds and on the northern Island, we can consider lower tuition fees from 4030 pounds. Scotland stands out for the benefit of its home students. The tuition fees are taken care of by the Student Awards Agency for Scotland (SAAS). Hence university education is free for Scottish and EU students

This amount is variable to the subject electives and university/ Institution. Home students are entitled to avail of scholarships or funding from their university or the research council sponsorship scheme. For Postgraduate courses 

For Non-UK/ EU students we can consider the broad bracket that is charged by the UK institutions is 12000 to 14000 pounds for undergraduate degree courses post-graduate course fees vary somewhat between 11000 to 40000 pounds depending on the electives.  

UK Universities also offer Scholarships to their International students.  

  • Many Universities’ scholarships for International students provide them with 1000-6000 GBP.
  • Students of Commonwealth countries can apply for scholarships and fellowships to help fund their postgraduate education through Commonwealth Scholarships and Fellowships.
  • Marshall Scholarships for American students are offered to students having a minimum GPA of 3.7, and their degree must have been awarded within the past three years.

 

Living Cost 

The UK is known for its luxuries and somewhat expensive lifestyle. Students do not necessarily need to follow the locals in their manner of spending, but it is good to have a higher budget. In terms of living costs, it is recommended that you have at least £14,000 per year. Many shops and retailers offer generous student discounts; the only coupon required is a student identity card. Students can pick up part-time jobs, or internships while studying to help aid them financially.

Post-Study Work Visa & Work Permits 

Post-Study Work Visa (PSW): International students who have completed an undergraduate degree (or above) are eligible to apply. With this route, Bachelor’s and Master’s students can stay in the UK to work for up to two years after graduation while Doctorate students can stay for three years. Students do not need a job offer in order to apply. Neither is there a salary limit and students are free to switch jobs when they need to. The PSW visa does not count for settlement so if you wish to stay in the UK permanently, then you may have to apply for a work visa which doesn’t count toward settlements sooner.

 

Tier-2 Visa: The Tier 2 General Work visa is a UK work visa, part of the British point-based system. It is issued to highly skilled workers from outside the European Economic Area and Switzerland, who have a job offer for a skilled job or a job on the Shortage List. To be eligible to apply for this visa you must have a job offer from a licensed sponsor in the UK. You should provide a certificate of sponsorship issued by the employer as proof. As a holder of a Tier 2 General Work  Visa, you will be permitted to travel outside the UK while on this visa. You can also bring dependents to the UK on a Tier 2 dependant visa.

It is part of the UK Immigration point-based system and it enables its holder to stay in the UK for up to 2 years. It also permits you to do a second job in the same sector and at the same level as your main job for up to 20 hours per week. In addition, you can bring over your family members with you. There are a limited number of types of work you can do with this visa, which are defined by the Temporary worker visa types.

After five years of completion of a graduation job, students can apply for ILR.  A stable income, a full-time job, and good moral conduct with no criminal record will help in securing the ILR visa.
