Study In UK : Requirements,Cost and Tuition Fees

This is a comprehensive guide on studying in UK as an international student. This detailed post will give you all the necessary information you will need about studying in UK as an international student.

How to apply and study in the UK

It is advisable that you make extra research on studying in the UK as the application process for studying in the UK might change for international students anytime. Below is the step by step procedure on how to apply and study in the UK as an international student:

Take time to search for universities in the UK that suit your budget and interested program.

Request a for application forms from the universities in the UK that you are interested in. You can request for application forms by email or downloading it from the school website.

Send your recommendation letters and academic transcripts to the university or universities in the UK that you are applying to for evaluation.

If granted admission by any university in the UK, pay for your tuition fees and other fees where applicable.

 Apply for a visa to study in the UK.

 All prospective students are required to write a ‘personal statement’ explaining their reasons for wanting to study their chosen subject. If you are applying to more than one institution, make sure not to mention any by name, as they will all receive the same personal statement.

The UCAS website has a lot of tailored advice for writing personal statements, but as a rule-of-thumb, international students are encouraged to mention why they want to study in the UK rather than in their home country, how their studies will help them in the future, and describe their English language skills.

As well as completing the UCAS process, international students may need to send copies of their academic transcripts to their course provider. This is usually because UCAS can only send some results from awarding bodies (such as the International Baccalaureate) directly to your chosen course providers. For most other international qualifications, the universities will ask that the results are sent directly to them.

Cost of studying in the UK for international students

The cost of studying in the UK actually depends on the specific school you attend. All the universities and colleges in UK have different tuition fees.

UK tuition fees varies depending on your country of origin. EU students are charged the same as students from within the UK, while those from outside the EU pay higher tuition fees. The tuition fees at public universities in the UK vary depending on the region which the university is situated.

In England, the tuition fees is always about US$11,330 per year, and in Wales about US$11,020. Scotland does not charge tuition fees at undergraduate level for domestic or EU students which is a good opportunity for people who want to study there.

 In Northern Ireland, Northern Irish students and those from EU countries pay about US$4,800 per year, while students from the other parts of the UK will pay up to $6,250.

 International students from outside the EU will pay a very high tuition fees of about US$8,580 and US$42,900 per year depending on the course. At postgraduate level, there’s no set maximum amount, and for all students (UK/EU/international), tuition fees tend to be higher than at undergraduate level. Again, this varies depending on the degree and university.

You’ll need at least $16,000 a year to cover living costs in the UK US$14,720 and will need to budget more to live in London, where rent and other costs are considerably higher than in the rest of the cities in UK. If applying for a visa, you’ll need to meet the financial requirements set by the UK immigration or you might have issues getting a visa to study in the UK.
