Registering your design in the United Kingdom (UK) does not protect it elsewhere.

You can only protect your design in other countries by applying in each country.

But you can use your UK design application to claim priority abroad within 6 months of your UKapplication date. This means that your later application is treated as if you applied on the same date as in the UK.

However, You may receive some automatic protection for your design through copyright laws.
