Team Hotcourses spoke to Katy Scott - International Officer (Eurasia and South Asia) - University of Glasgow. This is a series of question and answers on studying in the UK and facilities that Glasgow offers. In this video Katy tells us why students should consider studying in the UK. With a number of countries offering higher education in English it is a good question to ask on why a student should choose to opt for the UK. UK has traditionally being a preferred destination for students from India.  The first Indian student to study at the University of Glasgow was a student who chose to study medicine in 1870. So the University of Glasgow has a rich and glorious tradition of welcoming Indian students to its campus.
A degree from the UK is recognised internationally and the UK-education system is held in high regard all over the world. State-of-the art learning facilities and a strong existing Indian and South Asian community in the UK make the country a preferred ‘study-abroad destination’ for Indian and South Asian students. Additionally, the UK is conveniently located to offer a gateway to Europe with regular flights to cities like Paris and Berlin. Students can begin a trip of Europe with a base in the UK. The UK in itself offers a mind-boggling variety of tourist sites that can be visited by students.
These factors make UK a top-ranking destination for higher studies.
