UK Application & Necessary Steps

Step 1: Find the right institution

Once you have decided what subject and level you are going to study at, you will need to pick a suitable school, college or university.

Choosing the right institution is vital. Whether you will be studying in the UK for a few weeks or several years it is important that you are happy with your course and the institution you will be attending.

Most institutions have prospectuses that are available either in hard copy format or on their websites. These provide detailed information on all courses and will give you a good overview of the facilities and services provided by that institution.



Step 2: Choosing a course at the right level


Most subjects can be studied at a variety of levels, and most institutions allow you to combine vocational, academic and English language training within their course programme.

There are many types of educational courses available in the UK, including:

GCSE's, A level's and other pre-university courses

Vocational courses

Undergraduate courses

Postgraduate courses - including Masters programmes

MBA programmes

PhD courses

Distance learning programmes


Step 3: Application procedures

Application procedures vary according to the level of course you choose and the institution you apply to study.  It is always a good idea to check directly with the institution of your choice on the latest procedures and entry requirements.


Step 4: English Language Requirements

Although each course of study and institution will have its own language requirement, most pre-University courses generally require IELTS score or equivalent of 4.5 - 5.5, undergraduate courses require scores of 5.5-6.5; postgraduate courses, 6-7 and PhD courses require scores of 6.5-9. If the minimum scores in language proficiency are not achieved, course providers may want you on to enroll on a English language course.

Step 5: Student Visa

If you are interested in studying in the UK or you have already secured a place on a UK course, you will need to know about UK immigration procedures and obtain a student visa in order to enter the UK.



UK living costs

The two major costs involved in studying in the UK are the course fees and your living expenses.

The cost of living in the UK is not the same throughout the country. Generally it is more expensive to live in London and the south-east of England, and cheaper to live in the north, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland. Below is a rough guide to basic living costs (accommodation, lighting, heating, food, daily travel, clothes, leisure, books and incidental expenses) for a single student for a nine-month period.

UK education fees

You should bear in mind that course fees vary according to the course and where you will be studying. Also, the course fees will almost certainly increase every year. Do not underestimate the amount of money that you will need. It is British government policy that international students should pay the full cost of their studies. It is up to each institution to set a fee, so this varies. You should always obtain details of the full cost of study, payments of deposits and fees, and accommodation from your institution.

In addition to paying tuition fees, you will be expected to buy your own books and equipment, and some colleges will expect you to pay exam fees.


Working as a student in the UK

If you are studying in the UK full-time you are legally entitled to work up to twenty hours per week in your spare time during term-time, and full-time during vacations. However you are strongly recommended not to take up any employment until you are sure that you are completely on top of your studies.

Please note that to obtain a student visa you will need to show that you have sufficient funds to cover all your expenses in the UK without needing to take up employment.  

Earnings from working part-time as a student will only count towards extra pocket-money.
