The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, commonly known as the United Kingdom (UK) or Britain, is a sovereign state located off the northwestern coast of continental Europe. The country includes the island of Great Britain, the north-eastern part of the island of Ireland, and many smaller islands. Northern Ireland is the only part of the UK that shares a land border with another state—the Republic of Ireland. Apart from this land border, the UK is surrounded by the Atlantic Ocean in the west and north, the North Sea in the east, the English Channel in the south, and the Irish Sea in the west.
The UK’s form of government is a constitutional monarchy with a parliamentary system and its capital city is London. It is one of the Commonwealth Realms. The United Kingdom consists of four countries: England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. The latter three have devolved administrations, each with varying powers, based in their capital cities, Edinburgh, Cardiff and Belfast, respectively. Guernsey, Jersey and the Isle of Man are Crown dependencies and are not part of the UK. The United Kingdom has fourteen British Overseas Territories. These are remnants of the British Empire which, at its height in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, encompassed almost a quarter of the world’s land mass and was the

largest empire in history. British influence can be observed in the language, culture and legal systems of many of its former colonies. The United Kingdom is a developed country and has the world’s sixth-largest economy by nominal GDP and the eighth – largest economy by purchasing power parity. It was the world’s first industrialized country and the world’s foremost power during the 19th and early 20th centuries. The UK remains a great power with considerable economic, cultural, military, scientific and political influence internationally.
The UK has been a permanent member of the United Nations Security Council since its first session in 1946. It has been a member of the European Union (EU) and its predecessor the European Economic Community (EEC) since 1973; it is also a member of the Commonwealth of Nations, the Council of Europe, the G7, the G8, the G20, NATO, the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) and the World Trade Organization (WTO). Sovereign state United Kingdom or Great Britain is located off the northern-western coast of continental Europe. The UK has always experienced successive waves of migration. Major part of the migration population in the UK is from Indian subcontinent. UK immigration system has developed point-based scheme replacing all work permits and entry schemes for all non European Economic Area citizens. It’s great news for Indians that UK government has recently introduced new rules for easier migration to students and businesses that employ and patronize international migrants. This flexibility towards migration process would be more thriving or beneficial for Indians. Per the new rules, the UK government allows the visitors for a short term study and training during their stay. Multinational firms are given permission to bring their Auditor to the UK only on Business visitor’s visa. Business visitors are also allowed to do short term courses as a part of their stay. According to the UK government, these changes will be more blooming for the nation and will be able to draw the attention of international students. UK is always being an attractive education destination for Indian students, though there has a huge drop in the percentage of Indian students previous year, this year there is a rapid growth of Indian students in their Universities and schools. International students will be given chance to take up corporate internship after a successful completion of their degree. Graduate entrepreneurs are allowed to take up skilled jobs. The British Immigration department has made some drastic changes to the Intra-Company Transfer (ICT) visa system, so that without any language test employees can extend their stay in the UK. According to strong statement by Immigration Minister Mark Harper, "The UK is open for business: we are building an immigration system that works in the national interest and supports growth".

A few certain changes are made in family rules that will be beneficial to the family of the migrants. These rules will give a greater flexibility to the spouse and children of the migrant.

This support ensures a consistent level of high quality that is not dependant on the particular institution or faculty. Canadian higher education institutions enjoy an excellent reputation worldwide.
  • Admission requirements and tuition fess can vary widely, as educational matters are regulated by the provincial governments. Universities in Canada offer a wide, innovative and diverse course program. Universities offer undergraduate, postgraduate and PhD degrees which are equal to American and other Commonwealth universities.
  • In addition to the diverse study programs, one of the biggest advantages of studying in Canada is that you can improve your skills in two languages, English and French. You can come into contact with each of these languages in your daily life and some universities offer courses in both. Outside of Québec, where French is the only official language, Ontario has the largest French-speaking population.
