Some people say that I do study in the United Kingdom, the old boast of studying in the United Kingdom is good, the British university is strong, Te boring, not sincere.
In fact, praise or demotion, depending on the perspective, depending on your view of the problem. Good or bad schools can be different in different dimensions.
Today, I follow your taste, talk about what are the disadvantages of British universities, why do you say that it will be bad for studying in the UK?
1. Britain's Global Influence Wanes, Teachers Decline
Teacher team this thing is actually a school’s fundamental, if the teacher team is not working, then some of the top schools are just a table, eating the foundation of the old university.
Some strong schools in Britain now have this trend of declining influence, the economy is declining, teachers are not good, good schools are digging up teachers from other schools, and then they are going to generate income. The average school is starting to rot, after all, the financial allocation has been reduced. Well, if a project that needs scientific research funding is not funded, a good professor will not be able to keep it. Not only the professor, but also the staff and staff do not get positive feedback benefits. That’s why they marched once a week and on January 3. The benefits are not in place.
In recent years, in particular, Britain has spent its revenues on C-19s and other things, even supporting a wave of Ukrainian refugees. On the contrary, a wave of education funding has been controlled by the card, and the education budget has long been in deficit.
For some schools that can rely on private fundraising or donations, this is not a problem, and there is plenty. But for weaker schools, especially those struggling to recruit international students, it’s a two-way street. Some of the best teachers will be sent to other schools. The general school follow-up will be weaker and weaker.
2. After Brexit, resources are bottomed out and the education system is undersupplied
Leaving the EU is actually not a good thing for international students, because there are fewer resources and fewer international students. This reduction in resources is due to industry cooperation, funding support, and cutting-edge scientific research strength. Leaving the EU family, the United Kingdom take what confidence to order five drink six?
The situation in these years is that it is more difficult for Britain to maintain the glory of the past, and even because of the visa system, EU students do not come, directly reduced by half. Lack of high-quality student groups and teachers in front. The experience of foreign students is actually halved. After all, half of the EU students, most of the students have to rely on Chinese students and international students such as India to expand.
And domestic students mainly pursue a school, is gold-plated to go, simply will not make specific contributions to the subsequent industry. Just go there and bring a wave of GDP. Even less employment, after all, the UK’s own employment environment is not good, is not an immigration country, card control and powerful.
At present, the UK’s good universities, in addition to Niujian, LSE, IC and so on, even UCL, the probability of being sprayed every year is very large.
In the future, if schools on the British side fail to solve one of the three directions of technology, finance and employment, their strength will shrink in the future and the distance from the old United States will become larger and larger. This distance can not be solved simply by brushing the QS list.
3. Education is too industrialized and too dependent on international student tuition
Now Britain, the minimum reserve is put down. They do whatever they want to do to generate revenue because they don’t have enough money. They can only expand the number of international students in the school. It will especially relax the size of Chinese students and Indian students.
You see, the number of Chinese students in undergraduate education has squeezed out the number of local students, and the number of local students has been decreasing year by year in recent years. In addition to undergraduate studies, the same is true of students on the eu side. The diversity of the proportion of international students is declining. In other words, the popularity is a little ugly, because the tuition fee for international students is 2-3 times that of local students. They are, of course, willing to give more places to international students.
On the master’s side, the schools with good master’s degree programs, Chinese students are basically 50% + proportion of hot majors. Some can even reach 90% of the proportion, the reverse study is appropriate. It is in order to generate income at all, obviously can snatch money directly, but also set up a year to study the game to graduate. Why? some students say they can pay their tuition fees directly for their degrees.
Especially in Scottish schools, why Edinburgh and Glasgow eat ugly. It is because undergraduate schools in Scotland are free of tuition for local student universities. However, the funding of this part of the students is basically supported by international students.
Isn’t there a recent call for the Scottish government to abandon this policy? But it was vetoed by the first minister and continued to be implemented free of charge. Local students are well off, but they have to squeeze international students. And to squeeze more juice. He can only put more places for international students. Vicious circle, only Chinese students have not yet returned to taste, prefer to be a gun head.
Overall a knot: This spray is not quite enjoyable? And justified, in fact. I study in England myself, and I live on this. I am very knowledgeable about British studies. To be honest, Britain doesn’t deserve to be so sought after. It’s too hot. You can reduce the heat.
Relatively speaking, the value of the UK is not as fierce as it was more than a decade ago, the employment environment is not as strong as it is, and the strength of scientific research has declined. Better Ke Chuang, finance is not in the UK. It’s no use going to England to study engineering, plus a lot of students studying business. Most of them are gilded, educated, fast, not to mention academic stress and compact courses. I admit that the British university education system is good. But how much international students can really learn.
I think that Brexit has a big impact on the UK, and Scotland wants to leave the UK. This is to continue on the downward path of education.
