We often ask ourselves the question: how can we give our children all the best? There is an answer: give your children a good education, and they will definitely achieve the rest on their own
At what age should I prepare for university?
When sending a child to study abroad, one must understand exactly what he is capable of, what he aspires to, what he loves. Will he be homesick, will he pull physical, and most importantly, psychological stress. After all, education in an English private school is aimed at developing in children skills that are useful in their future adult life, such as independence, the ability to make decisions, and the ability to work in a team. The presence of these qualities is evaluated on a par with academic performance, all this together forms a future personality. And you need to think about who your child will become at least at the age of 12-13, when there is still an opportunity to enter a prestigious school, which will subsequently provide an opportunity to enter a good university.
The phrase "British University" has always been synonymous with classical education and fundamental knowledge. And, if you firmly decided that the child should receive a diploma only from such a university, a new question arises: which university to prefer?
How to get into university?
The best option is to enter a British school at the age of 14, so that by the age of 16, together with the young Englishmen, complete the “general secondary” and choose on an equal footing the path ahead: whether to prepare for university admission or receive a vocational education and start working. Then the A level preparation program will be assimilated with little or no tension.
Foreign students, including Russian students who have graduated from high school, have an alternative that gives them the right to enter universities - the Foundation program (1 year). It involves intensive study of academic subjects at an advanced level in one of five areas: engineering, science / medicine, business / accounting / economics, law, media / humanities. The results of the final examinations under the Foundation program are recognized by almost all British universities and guarantee admission to more than 250 speci alties. Whatever program you are preparing for university, you need to be fluent in both spoken and written English after completing it at IELTS level 6.5-8.5.
How to choose a university and major?
A graduate diploma from Cambridge, Oxford, the London School of Economics (LSE) and other prestigious universities in the UK makes an indelible impression on the employer of any country. The UK is deservedly recognized as a leader in the export of its education. Today, more than 65,000 international students study at higher education institutions in the UK.
British universities enjoy well-deserved popularity in the world not only because of the high quality of education and teaching staff, but also because of the narrow profile and specialization of universities.

According to the ratings of demand for graduates, he is firmly in the top five among other British universities. In addition, Aston has been named the friendliest university more than once.

Each foreigner has his own curator, who, if necessary, deals with not only educational, but also visa issues, helps to solve the problem of accommodation and is even ready to provide first psychological aid - to make it easier to adapt to the new order in a foreign land.
Aston University was the first to offer its students the Sandwich program. The gastronomic name hides a unique program that combines theory and practice: after 2 years of study, students go on internships in their speci alty for a year. Not only does Aston cooperate with Bentley, BMW, BP, Caterpillar, Colgate, Ernst & Young, Esso, Hewlett Packard, Fujitsu Siemens, IBM and others, the internships are well paid (from 12.5 thousand pounds per year). During this time, the student manages to establish himself as a good employee and after defending his diploma, as a rule, he already receives a job offer.
If sports management is your thing, choose Loughborough University - many students jokingly call it "Olympic" or "sports" despite the fact that it teaches banking, finance, physics, mathematics and other "serious » disciplines.
But the fact remains: those students who demonstrate outstanding abilities on the lanes of a stadium or pool are often willingly taken here. Athletes are very popular here. The most popular faculty among international students is "Management in Sports".
Increasingly, students want to enter such prestigious speci alties as design, architecture
Design, architecture, art are best studied at Cardiff universities in Wales (famous for graduate architects).
Cardiff University is one of the oldest in Britain, and in Wales it is the largest and most famous. Here it is interesting to study at the Faculty of Construction and Landscape Design, to study architecture and art. At the same time, student life on campus does not bypass anyone, and the local community of international students provides its members with comprehensive support.
What expenses are coming?

In addition, a surcharge for the use of laboratories may be required. Living in London, Oxford and Cambridge will cost 6500-7000 pounds per year, in other parts of the UK - 5500-6500 pounds.
As for the choice of an educational institution, it would be useful to turn to professionals. You only need to find out if the educational agency is the official representative of the university.
