Instructions about the method to get admission in British Universities
Enquiries concerning admission to a graduate course should be sent by the students to the institutions at least twelve months before the proposed start date. Most institutions do not have a formal closing date for receipt of applications; however, admission to a taught course may have to be submitted by a specific date which varies from course to course. It is also advisable to apply as early as possible given the closing dates and possible level of competition for scholarships given by foundations, trusts and the universities themselves.
For Admission to Master's Degree a UK Bachelor's degree in an appropriate subject, awarded with first or second-class Honors, or an overseas qualification of an equivalent standard from a university or educational institution of university rank is required. Where the US/Canadian marking scheme is used, a minimum grade point average (GPA) of 3.0 is required.
You may have to take one of the following tests: International English Language Testing Service (IELTS) with score 6 or above depending on the course and institution; grade C in Cambridge Proficiency of English or Cambridge Advanced English; Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) with score 550 or above; NEAB University Entrance Test in English for speakers of other languages at Grade 3.
If international students plan to study in England's top universities, they will need to take the IELTS Test. However, TOEFL test can also considered as part of their admission requirements in many universities but keep in mind it is not accepted by many British universities yet. From Cambridge and Oxford Universities, to Kings College, the Imperial College of London and Regent's College, the IELTS or TOEFL test is part of the admissions process to determine whether non-English speaking students have the language skills to succeed.
Approximate Fees (Average of Many Universities)
If your course lasts for more than six months, you will be entitled to free medical care under the UK's National Health Service. Even if your course lasts for less than six months, your country might have a reciprocal agreement with the UK which will mean that you also are entitled to free medical care. If your country does not have a reciprocal agreement however, and your course lasts less than six months you should set aside sufficient funds to pay for medical insurance.
Until recently, if you wanted to take a job whilst studying in the UK you first had to obtain permission to do so. This situation changed this year. You are now allowed to work up to twenty hours per week during term time and an unlimited number of hours during vacation time. Similarly you are able to do work placements which are part of a 'sandwich degree' or undertake internship placements with multinational employers.
