UK universities need no introduction; they are among the oldest and the most revered in the world. Applications to the educational institutions are processed through a centralized system, UCAS (Universities and Colleges Admission Service). However, a few colleges are not covered under the system and must be applied to separately. UK ranks in the top five in the world for university-industry collaboration. It is the world’s fifth-largest economy by nominal GDP and tenth-largest economy by purchasing power parity. It also currently comes in at number 14 on the Human Development Index.
