“We are glad that UK continues to be a favorite destination for the Romanian students, and by Study UK Exhibition, we wish to remind them that education has no borders, and in 2019 they will benefit from the same rights and advantages for studying in UK, as well as from all the support to access the programmes helping them reach their potential. By the innovative teaching methods and the research programmes recognized at global level, British universities offer a top education to the young people, and Romanian students bring added value to the campuses in academic and cultural terms”, stated the Director of British Council Romania, Nigel Bellingham.
The British education field is one of the most international of its kind in the world.

The students in European Union will have access also in 2019 to the governmental loans for studying in UK, and the level of the study fees remains unchanged. British universities provide a welcoming environment for the international students, which is also proved by the high level of satisfaction among the students.
