The UK has always been one of the first choices for students looking to study overseas, at the same time it has been one of the most popular countries amongst parents looking to send their child abroad. The reason behind the UK’s popularity is, of course, not without reason.
Since the establishment of the Nobel Prize, 131 out of the 860 awardees have studied abroad; and of these 131, 38% have studied in the UK.
Of the world’s Top 100 authors, 32 are British; according to Wikipedia, 14 of the 100 influencers of world history are British; and British universities occupy the 6 positions in the world’s top 100 universities. These figures clearly demonstrate that the UK has a long strong history of achieving very significant results in the field of education.
British education is world-famous, with many world-class higher education institutions. Among the 300+ higher education institutions, in addition to the famous Oxbridge universities, there are many other quality universities, such as Imperial College London, the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE), Durham University, University College London (UCL) etc. Every year, these institutions cultivate a significant number of experts who excel and contribute to their respective fields of study.
The British place much importance on the education of their children. In relation to education of children aged 5 and below, the UK government provides each family with a EYFS outline which sets out stages and goals of learning and development as well as any corresponding support which should be provided for the achievement of such targets. Primary schools in the UK are divided into state (public) schools and independent (private) schools, the latter of which includes the Preparatory School known as the “Grammar School Feeder”. Secondary schools in the UK are also split into public and private schools, with the latter including “Oxbridge Feeder” public schools, such as Westminster School and Eton College.
As a whole, the British education system is quite similar to that of China. Similarly, a child’s progression is from kindergarten, to primary school, secondary school, then university. However, there are also markable differences between the two systems. The table below illustrates the discrepancies that exist between the two systems and the differences between UK public and private schools.
Parents who have had experience with sending their children to study abroad with the UK will already have encountered the complexities involved in application procedures, the multiplicity and ever-evolving nature of entrance examination content, and the difficulties involved with juggling different school policies. In order to successfully admit a child into a quality UK school requires a fair amount of preparation; it is essentially an uphill battle.
