Ask Anna


"Can you help me understand the new UK points based visa system for international students?"


If your native language is not English the answer is “yes”. All international students have to prove a certain level of English ability before undertaking undergraduate or postgraduate study where the mode of instruction is in English.

Most universities or colleges will require you to show proof of English language ability as part of the application process. It is possible to apply before taking an exam, but in order to be accepted you must submit your test scores to the institution.

Both IELTS and TOEFL are accepted at most institutions worldwide. In general, IELTS is the preferred test in the UK and Australia and TOEFL is the preferred test for North America.

Contact a counsellor if you have any more questions about English language requirements: [email protected]

I am very much interested in studying in the fildes of teaching language.I used to be one of yhe best students when I was in the university. Unfortunately in my country and especialy in the department of education in Iran they make lots of different obstacles for those who want to study.Therefore I have decided to leave without pay in the case I am accepted in an appropriate univercity abroad. I have got two houses which I can put out tolease. I can work while I study in the university.I am married and I have got two children who study in grade one in first grade at high school. fortunately they are very clever students. Is it possible in your opinion , for me to arrive at my will? How?
I wishyou success
