International students from Bangladesh can bag many benefits from UK study and UK Degree – some of the major reasons Bangladeshi students should choose to study in the UK are:
You will need to prove your English Language efficiency through formal English Test. If you do not have valid IELTS or other UKVI approved English test, you can still be accepted by some universities – some UK universities accept Medium of Instruction (MOI) as English in bachelor/masters letter as an alternative to IELTS or other UKVI approved English test.
Some UK universities also accept Duolingo, OIETC, Language Cert etc. test certificates to assert your proficiency in English. Additionally, may UK universities have their own English Language tests to assess students’ profiiciency in English.
Therefore, if you are student from Bangladesh, it is not mandatory for you to have an IELTS test certificate, you may choose to go for other options available as stated above. However, if you are coming for a bachelor or masters foundation course, you must sit IELTS for UKVI.
