Studying in the UK (for international students)


There isn't many forums out there to make these points known, but I will add here and hopefully a prospective student will see them.
There is a plethora of mid tier British universities offering online MBAs but my studying experience in the UK has shown me that the is the quality isn't there in the products they offer. Unless its the top % universities like LSE and Warwick, I'd stay away from the UK universities altogether. They rely heavily on marketing and are wizards at it. However, the quality is lacking and the arrogance is high.

I am basing this after having academic experience with City, London, and Uni of Liverpool. Both were just bad to mediocre.

I had similar concerns when I was doing my research in early 2022 with many online only MBAs in the UK. When I asked more questions one said all the lectures were pre recorded and couldn’t promise that they were from that academic year. So in theory you could have been watching videos that were several years old!
You are the customer so it’s always worth asking probing questions before you hand over the cash.

Interesting. I didn't have that experience, but I found the support wasn't there. Many of the staff seem incompetent and course directors/tutors were spoofers. Also the format was behind the times. I think I'll choose Netherlands or maybe Germany for an MBA , probably NL. The Dutch are a pragmatic and innovative bunch generally.
