    Hello to everybody,

    I am from Slovakia and I would like to study in UK. Now I am at secondary grammar school, and I made baccalaureate. But maybe it is too late for undergraduate study, because my englesh is not at very good level. My english level is only at B2. Probably for study there I need C1, I don t know. My question is, what kind of test or certificate I need? Can I go study there from university in my country? What about fees there? In my country we don t need pay for study. Can I get student loan or something else? In my target, there are universities like Bristol or maybe Imperial. Probably not first class, like Cambridge or Oxford. To get at Imperial is so extremly hard? Thanks for your reply

    We're currently in the EU, so you will get the home fee status, but don't expect this after undergraduate becuse by then we will be out of EU, you can't get loans as you haven't lived here for 3 years, your parents will have to pay for it/scholarships to help out.

    Yes, this is logical, but on the other hand my parents don t have so much money. But anyway, if there will be any opportunity I will try to get there. And what about marks? Can I get there only with A marks?

    Yep, that is probably true. Good luck at entrance exams.
