Study in UK: IELTS requirement in new immigration rules

Study in UK: No change in English language requirements
Lahore, May 23: The International English Language Testing System (IELTS) has announced that there has been no change regarding English language requirements to study in the UK despite the fact that the country recently introduced new immigration rules for foreign students under Tier 4 of the Points Based System.

According to a news release issued by the British Council on Friday, IELTS UK Stakeholder Relations Manager Carly Moulding says the IELTS is concerned that new immigration rules for foreign students under Tier 4 of the Points Based System may have led to some confusion amongst Pakistani students over the English language requirements to study in the UK. "This confusion may lead students run the risk of being unsuccessful in their applications, if they do not submit all documentation required of them by the university," she adds.

She says: "The majority of educational institutions still require international students to prove their English language ability and IELTS is still the preferred test accepted by almost all higher education institutions in the UK."

Ms Moulding says Pakistani students looking to enter the UK with a Tier 4 student visa should first check with their chosen university or college what minimum English language ability is required for admission. "If the university or college has asked for proof of English language as part of their admission requirements, it will need to see documentary evidence," she adds.

She explains that it is a requirement under Tier 4 that the university or college lists all evidence that it has seen to assess a student's ability to undertake the course. All applicants will need to provide the same documentary evidence to the visa officer when they lodge their visa application. Dawn

'English proficiency requirement vital to study in UK'
Karachi: Pakistan students are still required to fulfill English proficiency requirements to study in UK, said International English Language Testing System (IELTS) UK Stakeholder Relations, Carly Moulding.

While new immigration rules for foreign students were introduced under Tier 4 of the Points Based System, IELTS was concerned that this may have led to some confusion amongst Pakistani students over the English language proficiency requirements to study in the UK. "It is important to understand that there has been no change regarding English language requirements to study in the UK," Moulding said.

Students from Pakistan willing to enter the UK with a Tier 4 student visa need to check with their concerned institute the English language ability required, while documentary evidence should be provided if required. It is a requirement under Tier 4 that the university or college lists all evidence that it has seen to assess a student's ability to undertake the course.

"We have seen evidence that students may be confused, but this is very important to clarify as students run the risk of being unsuccessful in their applications if they do not submit all the documentation required of them by the university. That documentation is still highly likely to include proof of their level of English language proficiency," Moulding said. The News
