When the notion of studying abroad is brought up, the United Kingdom is often deemed as an ideal country to pursue higher education. It’s understandable. The UK hosts numerous top universities in the world. On top of that, there’s a degree of prestige attached to those who study in the UK, and this prestige means additional perks like better job opportunities.

No wonder, over 16,000 Malaysians flocked to the land of posh accents and cold weather to pursue their studies! Studying overseas anywhere can be expensive, which can be a little hard for students to deal with. Which is why financial aid and scholarships would be really helpful!
