Building on a heritage of new discoveries, the UK is a world leader for science and research, with 54 per cent of our output considered world leading. (‘International comparison of the UK research base’, UK’s Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy 2019).
Even now, universities around the UK, from Bristol to Oxford to Liverpool to Glasgow, are involved in many of the over 800 research projects that the UK government is funding to tackle Covid-19 (UKRI).
As a student in the UK, you’ll be at the forefront of new discoveries, and benefit from the latest equipment and IT across a range of subjects, from science to art and design to languages.
What’s more, university-to-industry cooperation is integral to many UK degrees, so you can gain practical, real-world experience while you study.
