British high commission minister counsellor (political and press) Andrew Soper expressed his contentment at the inaugural eve of 'Great UK Education' presentations, for urging the students of India in choosing United Kingdom as their chief study destination and for their excellence in offering standard education that would aid a student to grow personally and professionally. He further added top four universities in the list of the world’s top ranked institutions are in UK which are preferred and valued highly by the overseas employers.

Soper has also revealed that they are going to see a steady rise in the count of Indian students to their nation by proffering 401 scholarship rewards that are worth Rs15.10 crore with the cooperation of 57 Universities that are present in the nation. "...the Great Britain Scholarships-India” is the largest and the latest scholarships scheme that is being initiated by them for Indian students, says Soper.

He has also added that apart from this they are also planning to set up the Chevening scholarships programme (a global scholarships scheme) in the coming years for all the Indian students willing to study in their Universities. This reportedly quadruples their funding amount to the students of India, says Soper.

Pointing to their quality of education, he noted that their stimulating and vibrant cultures and study environment is making most Indian students to choose their study destination as UK. As per the new statistics of the country it was found that around 84% of Indian students have applied for their study visas during the year 2013. There is no cap on the count of Indian students who are willing to apply for their student visas, according to Soper.
