    UK requirements for international applications

    Universities in the United Kingdom use a centralized system of undergraduate application: University and College Admissions Service (UCAS). It is used by both domestic and international students. Students have to register on the UCAS website before applying to the university. They will find all the necessary information about the application process on this website. Some graduate courses also require registration on this website, but in most cases students have to apply directly to the university. Some universities also accept undergraduate application through Common App (the information about it could be found on universities' websites).

    Both undergraduate and graduate students may receive three types of responses from the university. The first one, “unconditional offer” means that you already reached all requirements and may be admitted to the university. The second one, “conditional offer” makes your admission possible if you fulfill some criteria – for example, have good grades on final exams. The third one, “unsuccessful application” means that you, unfortunately, could not be admitted to the university of you choice.

    All universities require personal statement, which should include the reasons to study in the UK and the information about personal and professional goals of the student and a transcript, which includes grades received in high school or in the previous university.

    Program requirements

    The LL.M applicants must hold a minimum Upper Second class honours degree, or the overseas equivalent, in law or in a relevant subject. Those applicants who do not satisfy the entry requirements for direct entry onto our LL.M programme may wish to be considered for entry onto the Postgraduate Diploma programme. In exceptional circumstances candidates who do not have first degree, but who can demonstrate professional competence, may be admitted on the Postgraduate Diploma course. English Language Requirements IELTS band: 7 IMPORTANT NOTE: Since April 2014 the ETS tests (including TOEFL and TOEIC) are no longer accepted for Tier 4 visa applications to the United Kingdom. The university might still accept these tests to admit you to the university, but if you require a Tier 4 visa to enter the UK and begin your degree programme, these tests will not be sufficient to obtain your Visa. The IELTS test is most widely accepted by universities and is also accepted for Tier 4 visas to the UK- learn more.

    A good way for you to start exploring your masters funding options is to ask staff in your subject area for advice on how previous international students have financed their studies.

    You should also contact the ministry of education or education department along with the British Council office in your own country. The location of your nearest British Council office can be found on the British Council website.

    Before you start your search for funding you should consider the following:

    Funding opportunities are very competitive and are generally given to students that have achieved outstanding academic results and submitted high-quality applications.

    The application process for funding opportunities can start very early in the admissions cycle, so you should start looking for funding opportunities 12 to 18 months before you intend studying.

    If you need a visa to study in the UK you will need to prove to the immigration officer that you are able to meet both the tuition and living costs which may take the form of bank account information and/or a letter confirming sponsorship.

    Our funding opportunities database contains details of the major international student award schemes offered by the British government and other organisations, as well as a number of awards offered by the University and its Faculties and Schools.

    In addition, funded studentships attached to specific research projects are advertised in more detail on academic School websites. Some of these studentships are not available to international students, and you should check your eligibility before making an application.
