There’s no substitute for a British Education:

The education will provide you with a solid foundation and boost your potential for having a higher salary and finding exactly what job you want. Every English university is recognized worldwide for having creative and challenging environments that help their students to push themselves to the extreme. Their standards are incredibly high, and year after year, the universities are tested for how well they are meeting modern challenges. The higher education system in England has been the basis for higher education standards in other countries for years.
England has a lot of educational institutions (over 3000), and almost every single one of them has opportunities for international students to study there. You can choose from a variety of different undergraduate and graduate degrees, and combine your courses in order to make a degree program that suits your needs and interests.

Oxford and Cambridge are names that are known throughout the world because of their high quality courses and devotion to education quality and performance. You can find literally any course that you want in England, and you will find at least one (likely more) schools that will help you excel in your area of expertise.
England Loves International Students:
England is one of the most popular countries to travel to for the purpose of earning an education. Generations of international students have gone to England for their educations, which means that English universities have decades of experience in working with international students. We at Imperial Educational Services also have deep rooted partnerships with various universities. That means you’ll get the red carpet treatment from the time you start applying until you walk across the stage for your degree.
After you’ve been accepted, your university will treat you well too. Many institutions will help you get from the airport to your living accommodations, and some even guarantee living accommodations for the first year you are there. Every university has an international student society that will help you become adjusted to life in England and connect you with other international students.
Forget what you heard, English schools are affordable:
English degrees take much less time, on average, than degrees from other countries. Where other countries take at least four years for an undergraduate degree and two or three years for a postgraduate degree; England only takes three years for an undergraduate degree, and one year for a postgraduate (unless you are in research, then it may take 18 months to 2 years). That means that you are spending less money overall.
On top of that scholarships, grants, and bursaries are available from English institutions that are just for international students. Over 20,000 international students also get other financial aid from the English government, and you can work while you’re studying in England as well.
The Cost Of Living is Reasonable:
It’s fairly reasonable to live in England. Obviously, it will cost a bit more if you live in a big city like London, but in general, costs are reasonable. The cost of living also includes health care, and in England, that’s not much of a worry at all. England is one of the countries to have an institutionalized, national health care system, which will reduce your overall health care costs.
Unique Cultural perspective:
England is quite a unique place. Thousands of families from around the world have decided to live in England, which gives it a rich, multicultural atmosphere that you cannot find anywhere else in the world. Every year, over 200,000 international students decide to study in England. You’ll get to mix and meet people throughout the world, and your experience will be even richer because of being able to interact with so many different types of people. You’ll get insights into other countries and cultures, and learn a lot more than you may have been able to in your home country.
England is the largest country in all of the United Kingdom, and it holds a rich, interesting history that makes it an ideal place for people of all backgrounds. Commerce is also immense in cities like London. The nightlife is varied all over the country, and there is always something to do. Art galleries, concerts, open air markets, and pubs are popular places for the English to congregate and enjoy themselves.
If you decide to study in England, you will never be bored, there is always something new to do, and there are always new people to meet.
England is the Gateway to The Rest of Europe:
If you want to travel Europe, England is the place to be. In the United Kingdom alone, you can travel to Scotland, Wales, and Northern Ireland and learn about the different backgrounds and lifestyles in each country. Public transportation makes it simple to travel the entire United Kingdom and take in the sights and sounds. As a student, you can receive special rates for transportation when you buy monthly passes.
Those same public transportation routes can be utilized to reach the rest of Europe. The Chunnel (English Channel Tunnel) can take you right into mainland Europe within a day. You can obtain public transportation passes for the countries close to England, and you can explore wherever you want on the continent. Just make sure you have the necessary paperwork to do so (passports), and take the time you’ll have on weekends and long breaks in order to take in the sights and sounds of the rest of mainland Europe.
