A RECOGNISED REPUTATION

The high standing of a UK education helps attract students on the basis of academic quality and enriched prospects.

Welcome to The Home of World-Class Education

Education has the power to transform lives. It is one of the most important investments a country can make for its people and its future. Where great schools, universities, teachers and education providers exist and work together, you will find a powerful framework for learning and success.

The UK is seen as an exemplar in the field of education. Many overseas governments and institutions look to the UK to facilitate collaboration and to support the development of excellence in their own systems.

The UK boasts many of the world’s oldest and most illustrious universities. These continue to attract some the globe’s brightest minds.

Alongside these, a new generation of progressive institutions are helping deliver the practical and theoretical skills that the modern world demands in the 21st century.

Worldwide Partnerships

Working alongside governments and institutions globally, UK universities and independent schools are establishing international academic partnerships that include:

  • Developing joint and dual awards
  • Delivering online programmes
  • Establishing international branch campuses

There are now over 6,000 British-style schools operating worldwide.

Setting the Highest Standards

Providing a curriculum and range of qualifications appropriate for the learning, training, academic and employment needs of a country or region is pivotal to ensuring a sustainable skilled workforce.

British quality assurance and inspection systems are used around the world to provide independent verification of the efficacy of teaching and learning:

English as a Global Language

The language of Shakespeare is also the international language of business and the most widely-used second language in the world. It is hardly surprising then, that it remains one of the UK’s most successful exports.

The UK is uniquely placed to provide support to countries wishing to improve their national performance in English. This is delivered with the combined skills and experience of organisations including Cambridge English, Oxford University Press and The British Council.

Vocational Teaching that Works

Providing your students and workforce with the right practical and specialist skills can make a huge difference to overall productivity. The UK’s technical and vocational education and training (TVET) offering provides globally recognised qualifications across a wide range of sectors.

Closely aligned with industry, our vocational training system uses real-life specialist expertise to ensure your students receive the latest teaching techniques and the exact skills the work demands.

Our TVET capability is employed by many countries and institutions, enabling resilient educational frameworks across all their sectors – and helping their country and their people to grow, develop and prosper.

A Global Edtech hub

The UK is an established and fast-growing hub for emerging Edtech. We have more than 1,000 Edtech companies covering the full educational landscape, with expertise in infrastructure, connectivity, hardware, software and content.

Thanks to technology, we are blending a history of academic excellence with our bold and pioneering learning systems to reshape the education system.

Edtech initiatives are also re-evaluating the ways teachers assess the development of school children. By linking education, mental health and wellbeing, it gives teachers a ‘whole pupil view’.

Commercial help and support

The UK’s Department for International Trade has commercial officers in more than 100 locations across the world. They can connect you to UK capability, and UK Export Finance that helps offer competitive finance to overseas procurers of UK goods and services.
