The reason why I choose to study in the UK is that it maintains a quality management system with high standard in all fields. UK course duration is shorter than other countries, that means student will leave school earlier and begin their career sooner. In the UK, living cost and tuition fees is lower than other top destinations (e.g., USA, Canada, or Australia). UK Education provides the latest academic knowledge, practical tools, techniques, applied knowledge, practical approach in learning. UK prepares their students academically and give them soft skills which is helpful for their future career. My home country’s learning materials are not adjusted with the latest developments. Degrees do not maintain proper standard. That’s why degrees are not internationally recognized and valued. But UK qualification is highly regarded by the employers over the world. In a recent Survey of International Graduate Outcomes 2019 by Universities UK International produced by iGraduate shows that 82% international graduates say that their UK degree are worth the financial investment and similar number of graduates say that they are satisfied or very satisfied with their careers. Nearly 83% feel that UK degree has helped them to get jobs. I believe that the UK is the right choice for my study instead of studying in my home or another country.

I prefer the University of Bedfordshire for several reasons. Beds have campuses with excellent facilities and learning resources. Moreover, many of their courses are accredited by professional bodies and current professional, industry or commercial practices are included in teaching to ensure that students have the knowledge and skills sought by employers or for further study. Beds is ranked ‘Silver’ in TEF ranking. To support students the University has invested heavily in their facilities to shape the physical and intellectual environment of learning. 91% of graduates in work and/or further study within six months of graduating (DLHE 2018). Tutors are highly- qualified academic and most of them have received National Teaching Fellowship Awards. I cannot wait for the opportunity to surround myself in the subject I feel so passionate and look forward to the challenges that university will bring.
