Choosing to study in the UK as an international student means that you’ll get to explore the wonderful landmarks that the UK has to offer.
The UK is filled with historic sites, beautiful landscapes and breathtaking views that really have to be seen to be believed. A lot of visiting students to the UK aren’t aware of just how many things there are to see and do whilst you’re here.
No matter where you are in the UK; Scotland, England, Wales or Northern Ireland, there is a wealth of fantastic trips you can take whilst you’re here.
A National Trust membership allows you to enjoy unlimited access to more than 500 places. And with a membership, you can get into a lot of places absolutely free.
That’s why we think it’s worth getting a National Trust membership whilst you’re studying in the UK. The National Trust is “a charity that works to preserve and protect historic places and spaces—for ever, for everyone.” And their aim is “to look after Places of Historic Interest or Natural Beauty permanently for the benefit of the nation across England, Wales and Northern Ireland.”
Here are just a few reasons to get a membership whilst you’re studying:
Cost-effective way to explore the UK
We know students want to make the most of their time in the UK. Many students want to see and do as many things as possible whilst they are in the UK and that’s completely understandable. However, it can get pretty expensive. A lot of places charge admission fees which can really add up if you’re seeing and doing a lot of things. A National Trust membership offers free entry to a lot of places and other great discounts and offers. So you can explore the UK in a cost-effective way.
Learn about UK history and culture
There’s more to studying in the UK than just getting a quality education. There’s so much history and culture to learn about the UK. And there will be places to go and things to learn that you never even dreamed of. The National Trust has so many great suggestions on its website that you’ll be really spoilt for choice!
Gives you an incentive to stay active
It can be tempting for students to stay in studying and become inactive. It’s an easy pattern to slip into but a National Trust membership gives you an incentive to stay active, get outdoors and stay healthy. There are plenty of walks to take, buildings to explore and places to visit that being active won’t be a chore, it will be fun!
You’ll be helping to protect the UK’s most beautiful places
The National Trust is a charity and works to protect the most beautiful and historic places throughout the UK. By becoming a member, you’ll be helping the National Trust do just that. They also get involved in other worthy causes which you can be a part of! By becoming a member you’ll be allowing students after you to visit the beautiful places you have seen.
