Every year close to 500,000 students from 200 nations come to the UK to study at a school, college or university and 600,000 more come to do an English language course. In addition, over 500,000 international students each year take a UK qualification overseas – for example, online or at a UK overseas campus. The UK has a long history of welcoming international students from around the globe. And with a reputation for academic excellence, it’s easy to see why so many international students choose a UK education. Many UK schools, colleges and universities have an international society to help international students settle in and make friends. International societies tend to offer:
- Social activities such as parties, meals and meet-ups
- Trips to visit local tourist attractions
- Support, friendship and advice.
