So, you are finally here, thinking about moving to the UK from India as a student. Let us get straight to the point.
What is more important for you? Pursuing the course that you wish/plan to pursue? Or are your choices for the courses limited by your budget?
Let us explain.
If your priority is course then there could be potentially two reasons behind it. One is that you plan to pursue the course because there are numerous career options available to you after completing it. Second, you are wishing to pursue that course because you are really passionate about it.
The third reason could be that you the university in consideration offers excellent academic resources for the course in consideration. And because of that career options are numerous.
These reasons are not mutually exclusive. It means that it is not so that one reason is not connected to the other. In fact, all of these reasons (or more) could be combined depending on your situation.
You are limited by your finances. Although we have not got to the point where we are looking at the tuition fees of various courses. However, you still feel that you have a limited budget.
And, in that case, the I-wish-to-pursue-this-course approach will not work. On the other hand, you are going to have to focus on the good courses that you can pursue that have good career choices available to you afterwards.
What is my priority?
You are going to have to decide. Again, do not look at these things as if they are mutually exclusive. They are not.
It can so happen that you wish to pursue a course which falls under your budget, and, moreover, there are amazing career options available to you afterwards. Therefore, everything falls in the right place for you.
But, we are not making that decision right now. We haven’t done our research for the actual figures when it comes to expenses in the UK. The purpose of this article is to edge you to think about these things, and not make a decision just yet.
