  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. You need to write ielts for sure and then apply for the uni if u get admission in any uni. then u can be applying for visa . There’s no way to study without a student visa in a foreign country.

  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.


    My brother is interested in studying after 10th. Currently, He is in 10th class, will soon give his boards exam.
    I would like to ask what are the procedure to apply in a university; like is there a certain period of a month to fill the form or apply. I’m quite a newbie into this, need proper guidance.
    Appreciate your assistance.
    Thanks in advance 🙂

    1. For students applying to universities after 10th, they will need to take a year of foundation course before they enter university.
      The foundation course usually starts in September (majority) and January, students should prepare the application of admissions at least 3-4 month before the course start.

  4. I have completed my 10 Board Exams …now I’m pursuing my 11th class with science stream Pcm with Bio …I’m opting to go abroad for my higher educations…

    1. Hi Sonal,

      In general, government scholarship for international students taking MBBS is very limited. Most of them have very strict eligibility criteria and only for postgraduate level and above.

    1. Hi Swara,

      Yes, Indian student with 11th qualification is able to enrol to UK institutions for pre-university (foundation) program. This pre-university (foundation) program is equivalent to a year 12 qualification and the program duration is about 8-10 months.

    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)
