British universities lose their prestige

The rating of higher educational institutions of this country has been falling for the fourth year in a row.


British universities lose their prestige


Tell me where you studied, and I will tell you who you are. This is how one can turn a famous proverb on the part of holders of diplomas of elite universities in the United Kingdom. Since the 18th century, the prime ministers of this country have studied at Royal College of Cambridge and at Trinity College of Oxford. Suffice it to say that 11 post-war British prime ministers withdrew from the University of Oxford. “They didn’t graduate from universities” only Winston Churchill and John Major.
Studying in England has always been prestigious and always expensive. Today, tuition at local universities reaches 9,250 pounds per year, which makes England the most expensive country in Europe at the cost of university education. At the same time, students from Scotland study at their universities for free. Free tuition is also provided for students from European Union countries who have arrived in Scotland. But for students from England, Wales, and Northern Ireland, they have to pay to study in Scotland. And in the higher educational institutions of England and Wales there were no and no free “gingerbread” higher education.
For many years Britain has been a magnet for foreigners wishing to receive an elite education in its renowned educational institutions. In 2005, Great Britain was listed as the third country in the world in terms of education costs. After tuition fees were raised at 3 thousand pounds per year, British universities became the second most expensive after New Zealand and Japan. Being a student in Albion has become 50 percent more expensive than in universities in the United States.

In 2010, the then Minister of Business and Innovation, Vince Cable, made a revolutionary call to abolish all tuition fees at universities in the country. At the same time, university graduates would be required to pay an increased tax on their earnings and income. However, the British government did not accept this idea.

What is happening with the famous British education today? Nothing good. The rapidly approaching Brexit markedly depreciates the idea of getting an education in Britain. The rating of higher educational institutions of this country has been falling for the fourth year in a row. As noted in the QC ranking table compiled by the QC (Quacquarelli Symonds) research group, about three-quarters of UK universities have dropped unprecedented ratings.

In the international ranking table, the illustrious University of Oxford has moved from 4th place to 5th. University College London (UCL) fell from eighth to tenth. Out of 84 British universities, 62 universities have been dropping lower and lower in the international ranking for the fourth year in a row. Only the Imperial College managed to maintain its authority, rising from ninth to eighth position. The universities of Cambridge and Edinburgh remained where they were. Cambridge kept its seventh place and Edinburgh twentieth.
The number of foreign students coming to study in Britain has fallen today in 50 of the 150 universities in this country. QC research group head Ben Sowler explains the decline in interest in British universities is due to the low level of teaching and the deteriorating quality of research. He believes that leading professors and students from Europe and around the world may no longer perceive Britain as an attractive place to study and teach.

Covid-19 also did its dirty deed: the number of foreign students at universities in Britain in connection with the epidemic significantly decreased. With the departure of foreign students, the British treasury suffers considerable losses: foreign students paid much more to study in Britain than its citizens.

Today, fears are mounting that many UK universities will be left without a livelihood if the government does not provide them with financial support. The British Council, in a report released earlier this week, warns that this year, universities in Albion may be 111 thousand less than their students and 121 thousand - from abroad. An April analysis of the London School of Economics warns that a decrease in the number of foreign students could turn into a black hole for Britain in the amount of £ 2.5 billion.
