    Hello!

    I'm from Bangkok and am currently studying my IGCSEs. I want to study abroad in the UK and am currently contemplating either an English, Economics, Politics or Law degree. Do I have to return back to Thailand after I complete my undergraduate course abroad? I was hoping to start work straight after uni but there aren't much options for me here as I'm one, not so fluent in Thai and two, am interested in a writing or journalism career and like I said, it's mostly about Thai language here.

    Any advice/info would help. Thanks!

    You would have to leave the UK unless you get a visa. Try the British embassy to see if they can give you better advice.Everything as regards people staying here is uncertain at the moment due to Brexit but the embassy or the Foeign office would be best placed to advise you.

    You should not plan on being allowed to remain in the uk after study here. As the British governments
    rethinks it’s immigration policy I doubt journalists or writers will feature on the list of occupations that enable you to gain a work visa nor be paid enough to meet the income threshold.

    You can't go straight from iGCSEs to a degree anyway - you would have to do A levels or equivalent first.

    I'm sorry, I should've mentioned that I will be taking my A Levels as well.
