Everything You Need to Know.
We encourage all student candidates to book a free appointment with our expert student counselor, one-to-one session will give you valuable and practical information about higher education in the UK.
UK universities offer programs such as Foundation, undergraduate, postgraduate and PhdD.
The UK traditionally offers 3-year undergraduate degrees and 1-year masters programmes. If you are unsure about which level to study in the UK, book a free consultation with our expert counselor. We find the right institution, course and location for you.
If you are an international student finishing your high school exams, have completed less than 13 years of education and would like to take your first degree in the UK, you will need to study a foundation course at a UK university or college. A foundation is a one-year preparation course for international students who need additional English language and academic preparation for entry onto a UK university undergraduate course.
Generally, you will need to prove that your English is at the required level for studying in the UK.
There are various tests and standards for English proficiencies accepted by various universities. Our expert consultants advise you which documents/information is required by the specific university to prove your level of English and which English test it recognises.
One of the most widely used English proficiency tests are IELTS (International English Language Testing System) & PTE (Pearson English Language Test) which are globally recognised for study and immigration purposes.
You may contact us for preparation of IELTS & PTE tests taught by our expert instructors in a classroom and virtual learning environment.
Yes, international students from Pakistan need a student visa to study in the UK. Your student visa will allow you to live and study in the UK throughout your course.
There are two types of student VISA
TIER 4 (GENERAL) STUDENT VISA
If you are 16 or over and want to study at higher education level, you’ll need to apply for a Tier 4 (General) student visa.
You need to wait until you have an offer from a university or college before applying for your Tier 4 (General) student visa. Your university or college will then be able to give you a document called a Confirmation of Acceptance of Studies (CAS). To do this, your chosen institution needs to be approved by the UK government as a ‘licenced Tier 4 sponsor’.
SHORT-TERM STUDY VISA
Short term study visas are available to students who want to join courses that are up to six months long or English language courses up to 11 months long.
Undergraduate tuition fees per year for international students can start from around £11,000, up to £40,000 for medical degrees. Generally speaking, humanities and social science courses cost the least, while laboratory and clinical degrees are more expensive.
Postgraduate degrees range from £11,000 per year for taught degrees, up to £30,000 for laboratory and clinical degrees, as well as MBA programmes. Some universities may charge up to £50,000 for their MBA programmes, though this is rare.
Keep in mind that most postgraduate degrees in the UK can be obtained in just one year, making them excellent value for money
Current UK student visa requirements stipulate that you must have at least £1,015 in your bank account for each month you plan to stay in the UK anywhere outside of London. This works out as £12,180 per year.
if you wish to study in London, you’ll need to budget considerably more – at least £1,265 per month, the equivalent of £15,180 a year.
Yes, you can. UK Universities offer generous scholarships and please check with our expert student counselors for your available options, as support is often available for exceptional undergraduate and graduate level students.
You can work on a student visa if you have a Tier 4 (general) student visa or a Tier 4 (child) student visa. You are not allowed to work on a Short-term study visa. International students who study a full-time undergraduate or postgraduate degree course at a recognised university are allowed to work part-time during the term for up to 20 hours a week and full-time during the holidays.
Yes, the new post-study work visa rules will allow you to work in the UK after graduation.
International students who start their studies in the UK in 2020 or after will benefit from the new post-study work visa (PSW) for graduates. This usually means a work and residence permit of 24 months (2 years) after graduation.
The UK post-study work visa allows international students to stay in the United Kingdom after graduation in order to find work, for up to 2 years.
The new visa rules will come into effect for all international students that begin their studies in autumn 2020 or later. During the first 2 years after graduation, PSW visa holders can work in any job they can find, and the goal is for them to transition into a general work visa afterwards.
Any international student on a Tier 4 visa who enrols at a UK institution from September 2020 will be eligible to stay in the UK after graduation to find a job.
This is an extension of rule changes which allowed PhDs to stay in the UK after graduation. The UK says this is because it wants to grow its STEM industry fields. From 2020 onwards the option will be open to all graduates.
Previously, graduates of Bachelor’s or Master’s degrees had only four months to stay and look for a job. With the new graduate visa rules, that has been improved to two years.
The opportunity to stay and work for 2 years after graduation makes the UK an attractive destination for students seeking to start their international career. Few other countries in Europe offer such good conditions for their foreign students.
