  • Law: For Indians, it is the best country for studying law as UK law is quite similar to Indian law. Our constitution is majorly derived from the UK and hence many laws and regulations are the same in both countries. 
  • Psychology: Yes, Psychology courses in the UK are exceptional and are mostly preferred by Indians. The case studies and methodologies discussed in the class are remarkable to learn from. Moreover, the country has developed proper libraries with the oldest to latest books and research papers that can help students. 
  • Medicine: Reiterating the fact of COVID-19 vaccine development won’t be just. The UK has a well-developed and extensive system of medicine and healthcare. The NHS and the medical universities ensure that only well-qualified and skilled employees enter the healthcare markets. So, they have developed their education system accordingly. 
  • Social Sciences: World-class professors in different fields teach social sciences courses. Moreover, these courses are non-technical ones which makes it difficult for students to invest in them. Since UK offers 1-year master’s courses, students prefer to study such subjects in the UK to attain the best education in less time and budget. 

Other Factors: 

  • The Graduate visa route and Young Professionals scheme allow students to live in the UK for 2 years
