British Council’s Study UK Virtual Fair – December Edition is here

New Delhi: British Council, the UK’s international organisation for educational opportunities and cultural relations, is hosting its fourth edition of the ‘Study UK Virtual Fair’ on Saturday 4 December 2021. The Fair is a one stop platform for attendees to interact with several university representatives and gather insights on the study opportunities in the UK: including courses, universities and scholarship offers along with application processes and eligibility criteria. The Fair also provides information on student life in the UK, housing, as well as career prospects.

 

During the Virtual Fair, prospective students will be able to consult with representatives of 42 UK universities, including 12 prestigious Russell Group establishments. The Fair will also provide attendees an interface with UK Visas and Immigration (UKVI) officers, to clarify any doubts about the current process for obtaining a student visa. Officials will also conduct a session on post-study work opportunities and the Graduate Route, which allows UK graduates to work or look for work after their studies for a maximum period of two years.

 

Barbara Wickham OBE, Director India, British Council, said, Our Study UK Virtual Fairs provide the most up to date and reliable information for students, parents, counsellors and consultants, to support them in making informed decisions about education in the UK. The Fairs attract a multitude of students and parents every year and this year is no exception. We have seen an overwhelming response yet again and look forward to engaging with students considering UK as their destination of choice for an education abroad.

 

The UK continues to be one of the most coveted foreign education destinations for Indians with over 56,000 Tier 4 study visas issued in the year ending March 2021, as per data by the UK Home Office, indicating a 13% rise over the previous year. Moreover, the 96% visa issue rate for Indian students is well above the global average.
