Check with the university you are considering re part time employment. I attended uni as a mature student and my course had a multi-cultural student base - very few of us were English. As far as I can remember, pretty much every student worked part time during the four years that the course ran. About 65% were EU citizens but there was a good few oriental and asian students too. As regards the expenses - it is an expensive country but one thing about international students is this: there's a lot of subsiduary help available. Again, check with the university, there should be a lot of information avalaible to you. Most universities thoroughly welcome overseas students and generally go out of their way to support you. Otherwise, part time jobs are fairly easy to come by. Most towns and cities employ seasonal/student workers - bars, restaurants, cafés, supermarkets and so on. What ever you decide to do - good luck!

I think there are advantages as well as disadvantages to study in the UK. Before I also thought to study in the UK and I did do some search about that. Now I just list what I think about to study in the UK. Advantages: It’s good for improving your English because it’s the origin of the language. The UK is one of developed countries. It’s good for studying the most developed business knowledge. To you from India there are many India people so you would not feel lonely or big culture difference. Disadvantages: It’s very expensive country. You should have really huge money to support you to finish the course. If you want to work part time it’s very difficult to get a job as a non-EU student. Also the chance of staying in the UK is very slim too.

Hi Morehganeshan, I am from Indonesia,after finished my high school, I decided to further my studies abroad. My first plan is to Australia,one of my ex-classmate is going there too,We planned to go to Melbourne for our University degree.Too bad my mother was so worried,too far away for me to travel alone. At last, I went to Singapore for my study. I have a few friends study there and very soon I adapted well to my new environment. I even worked there for few years before married to my husband ,and now we are back to Malaysia. Singapore is a good country for study. There are few good universities like : NUS,NTU and SMU. I was not under 3 of these university. I am an external student from University of London,It was under SIM(singapore Institute of Management).It took 3 years for me to complete my degree majoring in Banking & Finance. UK is a good choice for further studies and hope you can adapt well there too ! Good Luck !!

I've studied abroad (year after high school) in Germany and (now) in Poland. Germany is pretty Westernized. Most western European countries are very American and the food is relatively similar to American. I liked Germany when I was there, but the area I was in, the people were very cold. It's a gorgeous country, though. German is not such an easy language, but almost everyone knows English. It's also really close to a number of different countries, if you wanted to travel a little. Poland is very different. I ate pig's blood a few days ago (which is totally normal here). The people here are really nice, but in Warsaw people don't smile as much. There's been a lot of problems in Poland because of Germany and (former) Soviet Union and a lot of people have the 'we're victims' kinda mentality. But people are usually up for a good party or a nice walk. I honestly liked Poland better than Germany, but where you should go depends on what you're interested in.
