Students coming to study scientific and technical subjects in the UK, benefit from learning alongside some of the world’s top intellectual achievers.

The UK has been welcoming international students from over 100 countries for generations. It has one of the world’s lowest drop-out rates due to a comprehensive support system in place for international students. This includes a dedicated international office, international student societies, planned social activities, academic support and a personal tutor.
