Hi Salma, yes there are ways! Some of the UK Universities might exempt you, if you got a good score in English Language in your higher secondary (12th). But you will find it very difficult to manage your studies. Also, Some Universities will offer you the English language courses along with the Bachelors.

If you plan to take IELTS in the future, you can apply to the Universities in UK and get a conditional offer. Once you submit your IELTS score you will get a conditional offer.

All the best.

UK has changed its visa policy and it could be difficult for you to get visa approval without IELTS. They could reject your visa directly or may call you for interview. It will not be wise to take the risk of student’s visa without IELTS. Regards, Richard Lasrado

Hi Salma,

Thanks for writing to us!

IELTS/PTE is mandatory for the courses below NQF level 6 or bachelor's degree. For bachelor's or above degree courses, universities can provide offer letter without IELTS/PTE but again this depends upon applicant's profile and this is the sole discretion of university.

If university issues a Confirmation of Acceptance for Studies (CAS) without IELTS/PTE then student can file the student visa but again British High Commission reserves the right to call student for further interview in High Commission.

So, this is strongly recommnedable to have IELTS/PTE for Uk Tier 4 Student Visa.

Thanks & Regards
