Absolutely. I definitely want to study in the U.K. Actually, I feel lucky for having traveled to U.K. a couple of times. I hung out in London for a few days where a visited museums and walked around the Thames river. It is an astonishing city.

I would like to study in the uk if I have a chance to do, especially in Oxford and cambridge. What I meant by this is all the books I have read to learn english since I was young are coming from these two countries which are very famous in non-english speaking country. I am familiar with these countries, so I would like to come and learn there because they are like educational cities which teach english learners an english thankfully and benevolently.

Yes, I would. My dream was to take an English course in the UK. Because I am in love with the UK accent. But my family did not accept this decision. They feel worried about me because I was a little lady.

Yes, I would like to study in the UK. Because I can practice my English and also here has a lot of high-quality universities in the world. I will be engaged in the learning environment with relatively good learning conditions. This allows me to access advanced technology and science easily through modern teaching and learning equipment.
