about united kingdom

The United Kingdom, consisting of Great Britain (England, Wales, and Scotland ) and Northern Ireland , is twice the size of New York State. England, in the southeast part of the British Isles, is separated from Scotland on the north by the granite Cheviot Hills; from them the Pennine chain of uplands extends south through the center of England, reaching its highest point in the Lake District in the northwest. To the west along the border of Wales—a land of steep hills and valleys—are the Cambrian Mountains, while the Cotswolds, a range of hills in Gloucestershire, extend into the surrounding shires.


The UK is a great place to study in. With excellent quality of institutions and a strong tradition of research, it offers an excellent learning experience. How can you ensure that your time in the UK as a student is well spent? This is an extremely important aspect that you will need to work on. In the UK the teaching and learning style is very different from that in India. You will be expected to do extensive reading, researching and be able to express your arguments in a logical and convincing way. Mostly the emphasis is on how to think rather than what to think. Plagiarism is a serious offence in the UK and students need to ensure that they do not copy answers from their friends, books (without providing proper references).
