The Education UK 2007 Expo

The first step to this excellent educational opportunity is to make your way to Sutra Hall, The Rizqun International Hotel on March 14 to attend the Education UK 2007 Expo. The upcoming exhibition will be the best place to find information about the whole range of UK education and meet representatives from leading institutions and learn about courses, tuition fees, living costs, healthcare and so on, a press release stated. Innovating while keeping the best of its rich and prestigious 800-year heritage, UK education offers internationally recognised qualifications acknowledged to be of the highest academic standard.

Relationship between academia and industry is strengthening as both sides see the value of coming together in an effort to share and transfer knowledge.

It is in the UK that many of UK's biggest research investors are using their budgets to strengthen their links with academia. In fact, almost 30 per cent of Europe's top 500 industrial investors in research are companies based in the UK, including GlaxoSmithKline, the global pharmaceuticals company, which comes in at number five with a research spend in 2003 of almost 2.75 billion.

Many top UK companies are also lending a hand in developing the syllabus for higher education courses. To name a few, leading corporations such as BAE Systems or Unilever have designed and jointly supervise PhD project work, advise on course content or provide additional lectures.

Digby Jones, Director-General of the Confederation of British Industry, states that a survey of large member companies found that 52 per cent helped develop undergraduate courses while 48 per cent helped develop Master's or PhD courses.

As evidenced above, when you choose to study in the UK, you have the opportunity to come into contact with the most up-to-date industry practice. This enhances your marketability and employability, as you are equipped with the skills to meet industry demands.

With representatives from 30 top-notch institutions at hand to help you manoeuvre through undergraduate and postgraduate courses, these representatives can help lead you to the right course, the right institution at the right location.
