Many international students come to the UK, hoping to go to university. But how do you do this?
Step 1: Decide what course you want to study.
Think about what you enjoyed studying before and what job you want. Websites like Course Chooser can help you to look through over 10,000 courses to find the best one for you.
Step 2: Check your qualifications.
Have you completed the exams you need to get on this course? Normally, if you are not from an English-speaking country, the university will ask for IELTS or another English exam.
Step 3: Apply!
You need to apply to university through UCAS. If you are not sure how to do it, or want some help, LLA has dedicated university application help.
Step 4: Improve your Academic English.
English at university is very different from normal English. You will need to write essays, listen to lectures and read a lot very quickly. Before your course, you should always take some Academic English lessons so you know what to expect. These can either be on a pre-sessional course or at LLA.
good luck with your studies!
