A group of students at a UK university – Caption ‘Study UK Europe: Gateway to the UK | Online 19 October–13 November – Register now!’

Join the British Council’s first ever Europe-wide digital Study UK event and find out what a UK education can do for you.

Join us online from Monday 19 October to Friday 13 November 2020.

Study UK Europe: Gateway to the UK is a free, month-long platform where students from European countries can find out all they need to know about studying in the UK.

We’ll be joined by more than 60 universities – including 13 of the Times Higher Education’s top 20 UK universities for 2021, the leading Welsh and Scottish universities, and many universities from the UK’s elite ‘Russell Group’.

The event is specially designed for students from European countries – so you can find out about university scholarships and get the latest information about studying in the UK post-Brexit, while exploring the best courses for you.

Who can join this event?

The event is suitable for European students of all levels. Whether you:

  • are looking for your first Bachelor’s degree – or exploring Master’s or postgraduate courses
  • are a seasoned traveller – or it’s your first time abroad
  • know the subject you want to study or the university you want to apply to – or have no idea where to start

Study UK Europe: Gateway to the UK is your chance to get the information you need – directly from universities and experts – at the click of a button.

Once you have registered on the platform, you’ll be able to:

  • attend webinars about specific subjects and careers, and learn about different undergraduate and postgraduate courses
  • book private online conversations with participating UK universities
  • find out about the cost of studying and living in the UK, including scholarships and other funding options
  • get the facts about new visas for EU students

How do I take part?

The event is fully online and is open from 19 October to 13 November 2020.

You can register from 23 September and start browsing the platform before the events go live.

You only need to register once. Just click on the link and you’ll go to a registration page, where you’ll have a few questions to answer about where you’re from and what you want to study.

Once you’ve registered, there are a few things you can do, all via the same platform:

Book to attend an online talk

Online talks include:

  • subject-specific talks, for example about studying Engineering or Media in the UK
  • practical talks about visas, costs, accommodation, life in the UK, and how to fill out your application
  • introductory talks about study in the UK.

Talks will be live from 19 to 30 October. You can visit the event calendar on the website and pick the webinar you want to attend. You need to book the talks you want to attend (you’ll just need the name and email you registered with).

From 31 October onwards (or if you miss a webinar), recorded webinars will be available on the platform.

Search participating universities and book one-to-one conversations with their representatives

You can search universities directly by name, by course or by location in the UK. You’ll then see the courses they have on offer and other information such as details of their scholarships and fees.

You will also see the times that are available for one-to-one sessions. Just click on the time that suits you and you’ll receive a confirmation link. Each session is 20 minutes long and it can only be joined via a unique login that you receive when you book it – so it’s personal, between you and the university of your choice.
