King's College London

November 2014

The UK has been a preferred partner for Indians seeking to study overseas and for establishing educational links. Students can choose from a variety of courses - from arts and sciences, business and engineering to creative industries, design, drama and fine arts.

Mahatma Gandhi once said, 'Education means all-round drawing out of the best in child and man-body, mind and spirit.' A recent UNESCO study on education pointed out that education is more than reading, writing and arithmetic. It is one of the most important investments a country can make in its people and its future and is critical to reducing poverty and inequality.

Education and access to knowledge is a key choice for young people today. It is not just the reading and writing but about acquiring life-skills, which will not only help you, secure your future but help you, make a positive contribution to society, family and immediate environment. It is also about making choices, which will help you achieve your goals.

The right to education is considered to be a fundamental human right and it has also been recently passed into law in India guaranteeing the future of millions of young Indians. It empowers youth and strengthens their efforts to achieve success, employability and growth.

If you haven't studied in the UK university before, it is worth bearing in mind that the academic culture at university in the UK particularly at King's could be quite different from the study environment that you are used to.
