Colleges in Wales

UK is one of the chosen destinations for pursuing higher studies for many international students. Wales in United Kingdom is one such country where students from all over the world flock every year to seek admission in the colleges. In a country where Welsh has been a compulsory language in primary and high schools for several years now, there are no colleges that impart education in only the local language. And this is one of the major factors why international students can feel at home in Wales colleges.

The second most important factor that attracts international students to Wales is the fact that he / she does not have to sit for the IELTS examination. Just securing the grade required for a degree program at the International Year One, at the end of the Foundation Year or before the masters course is sufficient.

According to the figures taken in the year 2004, the number of students in Wales exceeds the 5,00,000 mark, half of whom are college and university students.
