Question Description
What are the total requirements for getting admission in UK for a Pakistani student in a graduate program?
Answer

The admission requirements for Pakistani students in UK for graduate programs may vary depending upon course and university you choose. However, Iíll try to give you some general requirements.

Academic Requirement
First degree received with high grade from recognized institution in Pakistan is usually accepted for graduate programs in UK. You must have four-year first degree in relevant course which should be acceptable for admission in graduate program you select. Suppose, if youíve completed your bachelorís level in Computer Science, youíll be eligible to join related programs like Masters in Computer Science or other unrelated programs like MBA. Sometimes, the first degree received from Pakistani universities isnít accepted by universities in UK.

For most of the universities, youíll need at least 60% score in your bachelorís degree.

Financial Requirement
You must show you have sufficient funds to pay for university tuition fees. You may show this fund in form of bank balance certificate with sufficient money in your bank account.

English language requirement
British universities prefer IELTS as English language proficiency test to verify if you are capable of undertaking course in English language. Score of 6.5 will be sufficient for admission in graduate programs but sometimes you may require even more.

Statement of Purpose
Youíll need an essay explaining why you want to join the selected program. Your essay should be impressive to convince the admission staffs to select you for admission.

Generally, these requirements will be sufficient. But depending upon your course and university you choose, requirements may vary so I suggest you to contact the admission department of respective university to know detail information about admission requirements in that particular university.
