For which course have you applied?

 I have applied for Pre‐masters leading to Global Master of Business and Management.


Why do you want to study in Uk? (Important question in UK Student visa interview)




I have chosen UK for my further studies because:


  • The UK institutions persistently rank among the leading in the world and qualifications are acknowledged and valued internationally.
  • UK institutions provide flexibility of choice in course combinations.
  • The study approach and teaching techniques of the universities in UK give the freedom to be innovative and gain expertise and conviction.
  • Being a student, we look for the opportunity to be taught by the world’s best educators and specialists. Additionally, there is benefit of the constant academic assistance throughout the studies.
  • Why UK and no other countries?


I have chosen UK on top of other countries like US, Australia, Canada and New Zealand because:


  • The UK is a multicultural country, where I can get the chance to interact with people of different cultural heritage.
  • Uk is one of the most popular English-speaking country where I can enhance my communicational skills.
  • In UK courses tends to be more concise in comparison to other countries like US, Australia, Canada and New Zealand.
  • Moreover, Uk is modest as compared to other countries like, US or Canada. The living expenses in the UK are less than the others.

Why not your home country India?

  • The UK welcomes international students with open arms so I will get to interact with people from different cultures and nations.
  • Uk education system focus on both practical and theory so I can get additional benefit.
  • In contrast, India focusses on theoretical knowledge more. Also, in India, the number of students is huge in one classroom where as in Uk classroom size is small. I think the number of students matters as the fewer students and more will be the focus.
  • Comparing with India, Uk has both the Practical as well as theoretical approach whereas in India It is mostly theoretically based.
  • Furthermore, the learning materials, the education infrastructures are exceptional in Uk as compared with India.
  • Above all, in UK I would get an international degree and global exposure, which cannot be obtained in my home country India.

  • This educational program will emphasize the specialized leadership difficulties and opportunities that the creative industries face presently in the global economy.
