  1. In 2018 I have completed my 10th from india Telangana state,Hyderabad.

    I want to know options of applying and going on student visa without IELTS exam

    1. To apply for UK Study Visa also known as the Tier 4 (General) Student Visa, you will need to prove your knowledge of English by providing an IELTS.

      But you can be exempt from providing IELTS if you are an international student who:

      • Coming from inside the EU, EEA, or Switzerland which do not need a student visa to study in the UK.
      • Coming to the UK to learn English for less than 11 months.
      • Under 18-years old, coming to the UK on a Tier 4 Child Student Visa.
      • Studied for at least 6 months in the UK in the past 2 years.
      • Coming from an English-speaking country outside the EU.

  2. I completed my 10th in a cbse school in delhi . And I want to study in UK. I’ve written ielts too , I want to know if I should go to a sixthform or a foundation year.

    1. Hi Nandida, by taking a university foundation year, you need to study just 1 year before entering university. The choice of universities is limited, but your university place is guaranteed as long as you passed the foundation year.

      By taking the sixth form, you will need to study about 2 years before you are eligible to enter university. You will have more choice of universities, but it will be quite competitive for the university’s place.

    1. Hi Devika,
      The minimum academic entry requirement to a program leading to a Bachelor of Medicine in the UK is Completion of Year 11 with a minimum 65% (for CBSE Qualification). The study pathway will be like:
      11th (in India) => 1 year Foundation Program (in the UK) => 5 years Bachelor of Medicine (in the UK)
      Tuition Fees:
      Foundation Program: £18,000 – £19,000 (per year)
      Bachelor of Medicine: £33,000 – £35,000 (per year, *the tuition fees for medicine related programs usually higher than other programs)
      Living Cost (including accommodation):
      London Areas: £1,334 * 12months = £16,008 (per year)
      Outside of London Areas: £1,023 * 12months = £12,276 (per year)

        1. Hi Tanmayi,

          In general, the scholarship for international students at the foundation year and undergraduate level is quite limited. Most of them are merit-based scholarship.

          International students are allowed to work part-time while on UK student visa:
          – Maximum of 20 hours per week for students studying at degree level and above.
          – Maximum of 10 hours per week for university foundation/language center students.

    A fully funded scholarship

    1. Hi Pradnya,

      Unfortunately, none of UK universities offers full scholarships for international students at this moment.
      International students can take an education loan to found their studies in the UK, the loan normally should be applied from their home country.

        1. Hi Pradnya,

          The scholarships vary depending on individual universities, programmes, entry year and many other factors. Most of them are merit-based scholarships.

          The scholarships available for international students are normally with strict eligibility criteria and majority for postgraduate level and above.

          For university foundation year or undergraduate level, the most common scholarships are from £1,000 to £5,000.

        1. Hi Aamir,

          From the university point of view, the student’s nationality does not prove anything about their English language standard.
          You don’t need IELTS for visa purpose, but depending on the individual institution entry requirements, you may need to take IELTS to meet their language requirement.

    Do I need to apply individually for every foundation programme or is there something like UCAS

    1. Hi Armaan Chahal,

      1. The foundation program in the UK usually have two intakes which are September and Jan, you can choose whichever intake suits you the best. To apply for foundation programs you should send in the application at least 3 to 4 months before the course start date.
      2. You do not need to apply through UCAS for foundation programs in the UK.
      3. Depending on the individual universities, Medicine degrees usually require prior study of 2 to 3 science subjects such as Chemistry, Biology, Maths or Physics.

  25. Hello,
    I am studying in 10th standard and next year, I’ll be giving the 10th board exams. I want to study in England after my 10th.
    So, I came across your website and it comes out to be very helpful. But, I want to know all the requirements in deep. Like, I am below 16 so, I would not be able to give IELTS exam. So, if I give TOEFL exam then the college would accept me and first, I want to enroll into foundation year. Please tell me some colleges or universities for which I could be eligible. I hope you will answer soon.
    Thanks

    1. Hi Sandy,

      A sufficient TOEFL result is good for show colleges or universities you have met their language requirement. But you will still need to provide sufficient IELTS for UKVI result for student visa purpose if you want to take university foundation programs (study in the UK after the 10th).

    1. Hi Remya Jibin

      It depends on your son’s current academic circumstances such as what curriculum he is currently taking, and which curriculum suits him the best.
      as he is a UK citizen, coming to the UK he can be enrolled in a public school and most probably will be taking General Certificate of Secondary Education (GCSE) for his secondary education. This is quite different from the CBSE or ICSE or State Board Qualifications.
