The United Kingdom known as Land of the Rose has a long history as a major player in international affairs. Studying in the UK is an opportunity to experience a multicultural environment, meet new people and fellow international students from across the world and discover new places. You benefit by developing a range of skills that are necessary to be part of today’s global workforce.
The UK is one of the top destinations to study in the world. International students have always been an important presence in the UK, and their numbers have been growing steadily over the years. The UK institutions consistently rank among the best in the world and qualifications are internationally valued and recognised.
And also it takes less time to complete your degree in the UK than in other countries and that will help in saving money. UK institutions offer flexibility of choice and enable you to blend academic and vocational courses of your choice. The UK is the home of English hence an ideal place to develop language skills and enhance employment prospects.
How long your master’s degree lasts is generally up to you. Full-time courses typically last one year while part-time courses can last from two to three years. Completing it part-time allows you to benefit from work experience as well, but don’t forget that a postgraduate degree requires a lot of time, work and focus.
The academic year in the UK runs from September to July. The majority of university courses in London begin in September, although some courses also begin in January and February. You can check the start date of your course using our course search.
The deadlines for each intake are usually a few months before the start date. It is highly recommended that you apply early to maximize your chances for admission. Some universities even offer rolling admissions, i.e. admissions are open through the year. The major intake for the UK is the Fall intake which offers the highest degree of competition but also features the largest number of corporate internships.

International students pay higher tuition fees than domestic students and also fund their accommodation and living costs. Fortunately, there is support available and opportunities for part-time work to top up funds.
Note: To work part-time while studying, a National Insurance number is required. This ensures all tax and national insurance contributions made while working are recorded correctly.
The Academic Technology Approval Scheme (ATAS) requires all students who will be studying for a postgraduate qualification in certain sensitive subject areas on a time-limited visa, which includes a Tier 4 visa, to apply for a clearance certificate. The relevant subject areas are based on whether knowledge gained could be used in programmes to develop weapons of mass destruction or their means of delivery.
ATAS applications are administered by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO). It is a free online application. The standard ATAS processing time is 20 working days although this can increase to 6 weeks during the peak period July – September.
All the major UK banks have branches in Cambridge. Different banks offer different benefits and services to international students so it is advisable to check your options before making a choice. Most students open a current account which provides a visa debit card, which can be used to make payment in shops and online as well as take money from cash points (ATMs) up to a daily maximum limit, and is usually combined with an online banking service.
The banks advise students to visit one of their branches to discuss opening an account. You may need to book an appointment to make your application depending on how busy the bank is at the time you visit.
This is particularly likely at the beginning of the academic year. To open an account you will need to take your passport, UK visa (if applicable) and a letter from your College.
You will receive your CAS once you have met all of your offer conditions and your offer of admission is confirmed. Your CAS will be sent to you electronically. The Graduate Admissions Office issues CAS for new graduate students. All other CAS are issued by the International Student Team.
