As per the latest figures available, the United Kingdom has replaced the United States as the most favoured destination of Indian students going abroad for studies. For the year 2010 (academic session 2010-11) 57,500 fresh student visas for the UK have been issued. “It’s almost 73 per cent more than
the visas issued in 2009,” says Amit Chaturvedi, head education, UK (north India). The 2009 figure was 31,500. “I think it is the interest shown by Indian students in the one-year Master’s programme that engineered the spurt in numbers, says Chaturvedi.

Site news ::  UK-Student.net Launches Academic Directory - Free Online Essay Writing Aid
Posted by ADMIN on 2007/1/11 20:57:31 (7597 reads)

UK Student, a London-based online learning resource, is opening up its ‘Academic Directory’ to help university students besieged by essays and coursework. The directory presents the UK’s largest collection of articles written by academics specifically for students, to create an invaluable reference base and help avoid the pitfalls of plagiarism.

The Academic Directory, contains works submitted by renowned academics from international universities spanning the UK, US, Australia and other countries, ensuring reputable source material. It is the only online directory to provide such a collection of articles, allowing users to compare and ‘cherry pick’ various approaches so they can develop well-rounded viewpoints within their own essays or dissertations, rather than opt for the much maligned ‘cut and paste’ essay culture where chunks of work found on the internet are copied, inserted into a 'new' work and passed off as the student's own.

As lifting source material is both discouraged and fraudulent, to ensure students stay on the right side of referencing and plagiarism rules, UK-Student.net provides a separate section containing advice on this important area. Furthermore, every article on Academic Directory is reprinted with full permission of the copyright holder.

Topics covered include how to write abstracts, analysis tools (such as SWOT and PEST), coursework and report writing, exam preparation, PhD research, subject specific writing, dissertation writing and more.

The site also features a 'Presentations' section that provides advice on presenting an academic or research topic from experts at University of Kent, Harvard University, University of California, University of Canberra, York University, University of Glasgow, Anglia Ruskin University, University of Auckland, Brunel University and other reputable institutions.

Liya Wells, founder of UK-Student.net, says: “Students find the Academic Directory highly useful because they can source information that wasn’t taught during class time and can access it easily without visiting the library or student centre. The large number of articles in our database means students can even find an article written by their own tutor. By reading and following their tutor’s article, students can write exactly what is required and achieve a high grade.”

She adds: “Academic Directory is beneficial to academics too as they can extend their knowledge and explore new perspectives by reading articles written by their colleagues. They gain an enviable reference source and can save time by directing students to a particular page on the directory instead of starting from scratch and writing a similar article themselves. With Academic Directory, there really is no need to reinvent the wheel.”

UK-Student.net is a non-commercial online service which presents a large database of articles useful for students. The web portal is designed to help students with every aspect of academic issues - such as essay and dissertation writing, group work, making effective presentations, etc.

UK-Student.net is recommended by a large number of universities and colleges and has been mentioned in The Sunday Times.
