I am a student from Kolkata, India. I am thinking to study in UK soon in near future. I am wondering if I could study in UK without having TOEFL or IELTS score. I want to ask you guys, Can I get admission in universities and colleges of UK without taking TOEFL and IELTS? Also, what from the visa prospective? Do the UK embassy issue student visa to student who do not have either TOEFL or IELTS score? Can they bias to student having and not having TOEFL/IELTS scores?
It can't be said that it is impossible to study in UK without IELTS or TOEFL score. If you have good command over English language, universities and colleges may exempt the English language proficiency requirements for you.
However, it will be a bit difficult for you to get student visa of UK if your first language is not English. UK consulates around the world will ask students to show the proof of proficiency in English. If you will be able to convince consular, I think there will be no problem for entry in UK to study in any universities or colleges.

IELTS is must, but if you have scored around 75% in your 10th and 12th English, then college may waive you off. But again, it depends on the college. Colleges or universities do require IELTS. Go join some institute and get this done. Again Listening and Speaking can fetch you more score as compare to Reading and Writing. I did have same question like you and I did meet UK international Admission at some consultancies and they say itís better to give IELTS although I have 4 years of Experience in IT for UK and US region and did show them my recommendation letters. Nothing worked for me and am preparing for IELTS. I wish you all the Best.
