Today I am going to explain how to get into a UK university and I will talk about all admissions requirements you need to know about in order to make a successful application.

How to write a successful personal statement
How to prepare for IELTS in one week
The list of documents is not as long as some may think. First of all you will need a filled-in application form and a good personal statement.
You will then be asked to provide certificate and transcripts from your previous place of study. Make sure that your grades are good and meet GPA requirements of your chosen uni.
All UK universities will ask for references, they also called recommendation letters. Most universities will ask for two, especially if it is a master’s programme.
Students, applying for MBA or who are over 25 years old will need to produce a CV, as the university will expect you to have work experience at that age.
If you want to apply for a PhD in the UK, you will also need to write a research proposal.
It is also worth mentioning that if you are applying to study a creative course, such as fashion, design, photography, architecture, you will have to provide a portfolio of your works for the application.
And, of course, don’t forget to enclose your passport!
If English is not your first language, you must demonstrate that your English level is good enough to understand lectures, write assignments and communicate with other students.
This is why you need to take an IELTS test.
If the university likes your application, they might invite you for an academic interview. It is more likely to happen if you are applying for master’s, all medicine programmes, and some top universities.
Most universities in the UK don’t have entrance exams as such! You will be judged based on your previous high school or university grades.
If you are planning to apply for certain types of courses (like medicine, law, MBA and master’s in finance) or to top universities in the country (by top universities we mean 10 highest rated universities in the UK) you might have to meet some extra requirements or to take additional exams.
