Hi!, We are launching the Q&A section soon. Meanwhile check the Frequently asked questions on studying in UK. If you have any questions, don't forget to leave them in the comment section.

 

Q1: Which is the entrance test for applying to colleges in UK for admission?

Under the British education system, students undergo thirteen years of per-university education as opposed to twelve years in India.

For those who do not, as yet, have these qualifications, there is a range of access or foundation courses available. Foundation courses range from four months to a year. While applying the applicants must satisfy both general and course requirements for admissions.

Q2: What is the visa process for study in UK?

Candidates seeking student visa for UK, visa applications have to be made on IM2A forms, which are available free of cost at the British Embassies. This form has to be filled up by the student and submitted to the embassy, along with the Visa application fee and the required documents:

A letter of acceptance from the institution confirming your place for the program in the institution
Financial documents as evidence that you can meet with the course fee structure and can support yourself during your stay.

Q3. What is the minimum IETS or TOEFL score required to get into a UK Institution?

Though the requirement is university specific, a minimum overall score of 6.0 for IELTS and 80 on the iBT TOEFL is sought by most of the universities.

Q4. How much are the living expenses for International Student?

Cost of living will depend on the location you choose to live.

  • Other areas- 5400 £ per year.

Q5. How can I get scholarship for study in UK?

Scholarships are mostly available at the post-graduate level and some of these are offered by the British Government and other UK organizations; e.g. British Chevening Scholarships. Some Universities provide scholarships for specific programs only. All the scholarships are very competitive in nature and are based on merit.

Q6. What is the Application procedure for UK?

  • For UG programs, the student has to fill out a UCAS form. However there are few exceptions as some of the universities can accept direct applications also.
  • For PG programs, the student has to fill out the University/college form meant for international student.

Q7. How much cost I have to acquire for UK Education?

Average undergraduate UK course fees per year:

  • Foundation courses: £4,000 to £12,000
  • Arts courses: £7,000 to £9,000

  • Clinical courses: £10,000 to £33,000
  • MBA: £4,000 to more than £34,000

Q8. How can I get contact details of Indian consultancies for abroad studies in UK?

There are many consultancies in India for consulting you about abroad studies in UK. You can search online the contact information of these consultancies and gather all the information regarding study in UK.

Q9. What are the entry criteria for master’s studies in UK?

Though most of the UK universities accept the Indian graduation system of three years for entry into most of the postgraduate courses with a completion of 15 years of education, some courses and universities may require a qualification equivalent to British Bachelor (Honours) Degree, which requires 16 years of formal education, which would mean another year after graduation or a four year degree course like B.E., B.Tech or other such courses.

An Indian bachelor degree like B.A., B.Com or B.Sc. is equivalent to a British Bachelor (Ordinary) Degree and for most Universities, a good first degree from a leading university in India or its equivalent is essential to apply for Masters in UK.

Q10. Why Study in UK? What are the benefits of studying in UK?

The UK education system offers a high degree of sophistication, a matchless charm, and above all, educational quality that's backed by centuries of tradition. The United Kingdom is just the right place to give your career that global edge.

Apart from the well-known Oxford and Cambridge, UK have a large number of other universities which rank among the best in the world and offer a wide range of courses.

While considering the education system prevalent worldwide, one major advantage of U.K. education for the international applicants is its one-year Masters Degree for almost all courses, saving considerable time and money. Also, unlike those in other countries, most UK universities recognize the system of 3 year graduation prevalent in most of the Asian countries.

Another factor that makes UK stand out in the crowd is the flexibility with the student visa. You are allowed to work 20 hours per week during studies and Full time during vacation.

  •    What is the procedure to get into a medical university for post-graduation (after MBBS)? Is PLAB necessary? What is the course duration?
    srishti srivastava, 14-05-2013 Reply
    Hey Srishti, are you looking for MD, MSc or a Postgraduate Diploma program at UK universities? Each university has different entry requirements. If you are looking for an MD program then some universities there require PLAB after joining of the program & some universities don't require it. If you provide me your contact number, I will share a few things regarding this matter. The MD program in UK is either of a two or three year duration. For further details please drop a mail at: lhamo.t@edu-abroad.in Eduabroad Consulting, 03-07-2013
    Just go for PLAB SUCCESS in India. With their PLAB training courses, you can pass PLAB 1 exam in first attempt. They give warranty about their training. PLAB Success, 08-05-2014
