How can you study in the UK without IELTS? Firstly, your score for English in Class XII is the criteria for this scheme. We know you came here because you are a UK study aspirant. Therefore, you must listen to what education counsellors at EALOOR have to say.
Generally, students think that IELTS is mandatory for a UK student visa. As a result, they invest a tremendous effort to secure a high score for IELTS, to get admission in a UK university. However, the reality is different – and more exciting.
How exciting? First of all, if your Class XII English score is 70% (or above), you can study in the UK without IELTS. Accordingly, we have placed hundreds of Indian students at top UK universities, without having them to clear IELTS.
We call it the “shortcut entry.” Here’s why:
For the most part, for Indian students the academic year ends March – April. Also, any good IELTS coaching centre will ask you to enrol for a 3 months coaching program to secure a good score. As a result, by the time you finish coaching, appear for IELTS exam and get the results, it will be late August.
We know the fall intake in the UK is in September. Therefore, you cannot apply for this intake by late August. You wait and wait and wait till January next year for your admission!!!
Even more important:
You have to keep your academic gap to a minimum from a future perspective. Moreover, we can’t disregard the money (IELTS coaching and exam fee) and the effort you have to put if you go by the traditional method.
And that, dear student, is what makes the shortcut entry so effective and practical.
To clarify, top institutions like the Hertfordshire University, Portsmouth University, Birmingham City University and Swansea University offer admission to Indian students without IELTS. In short, these universities consider your score for English in Class XII as proof of English language proficiency, instead of IELTS.
So, let me summarize. As an Indian student, you can study in the UK without IELTS if you have secured a minimum of 70% for Class XII English. In addition to saving the time and effort, you don’t have to wait till the next intake to apply for UK student visa.
So you can study in the UK without IELTS: Here are the simple steps to following our shortcut entry:
- Number 1: Firstly, verify that you satisfy the eligibility requirements. Why? Well, this saves time and you can begin your IELTS preparation in case you don’t have 70% or above for English in Class XII. On the other hand, if you do have the score you can proceed to step 2.
- Number 2: Secondly, arrange the required documents and scan them. The documents required are your CV (resume), first two pages of your passport, Class X, Class XII certificates, Bachelors mark sheets (both semester-wise and consolidated certificates), Letter of Recommendation (LORs – at least 2) and Statement of Purpose (SOP).
- Number 3: Finally, submit the inquiry form above so that we can contact and guide you on how to proceed.
Well, if you don’t know what LOR and SOP are, don’t worry. Education counsellors at EALOOR are ready to help you.
So, what can you expect on our call back regarding this “shortcut entry”? First of all, our approach to securing your admission in the UK is specific and unique….. In fact, we are the ONLY education consultants in Kerala led by Qualified British Council Education Agent – Ref. GAL/16516.
