Over the years one has mostly witnessed the prestigious UK Universities setting up base in various parts of the world. Students studying in their home country based UK education institutes are quite common. But over the years, there has been an upsurge in the international universities opening their education institutions in UK. This country has been dominated by state funded/public universities. These public universities in UK became more powerful in 1988 when Education Reform Act abolished all domestic private universities of UK. All except for one i.e. University of Buckingham located in Buckingham, England. Although the law did allow the legal presence of degree granting authorized international universities in UK.
Initially people used to shy away from the name private education institute and if it is international then more reason to avoid it. It is mainly due to the monopoly of state run universities of UK which award internationally recognized UK University degrees. But now the tide is changing and it can very well be witnessed through various international institutes like worldwide famous Limkokwing University of Creative Technology, Hult, AIU [American Intercontinental University] and now Amity Global Business School which has opened in London in partnership with Anglia Ruskin University in Cambridge.
This new trend of opening an international education institute in partnership with a renowned UK University is also catching up in UK which one can witness in University of Wales granting degrees to London School of Commerce. With much lower fees than universities, one might think that these international private universities in UK might eat up into the business of universities including those in partnership with these private institutes.
The budding partnership between Anglia Ruskin University and Amity Global Business School in London however tells a different story. According to Anglia Ruskin University, there is no chance of their business getting affected at all as they are hoping to tap in the London international student population through Amity. The price difference between the two i.e. £7,800 pa or Amity and £11,000 pa for Anglia Ruskin University too makes a major point in favour of international university degrees in UK.
Another mentionable thing is that due to the recent cap put on the admission of international students in 2008, there is urgent need for various international universities to accommodate the growing demand for UK degrees. The future looks bright for international students with the arrival of international university degrees in UK!
