MOI Accepted Universities in the UK
Many UK universities accept Medium of Study Instructions (MOI) in English from selected Bangladeshi universities. Bangladesh students constantly seek an opportunity to study in the UK without IELTS. Several British Universities recognize the medium of study instructions in English as an alternative language assessment method. Higher educational institutes maintain their high standards by asking for language proficiency skills. UK Visa & Immigration (UKVI) standard language assessment tests are IELTS, IELTS for UKVI, PTE Academic, PTE Academic for UKVI, Trinity College London, LanguageCert etc. These are the tests recognized as UKVI SELT.
However, Higher educational institutes (HEIs) have the right to make English assessments independently. As a result, UK public universities sometimes accept alternatives to SELT tests. In the past, they took Duolingo, OIETC, etc., due to COVID-19 restrictions when students had limited ability to sit for examinations.
A good number of UK institutes also conduct their own English language assessment tests known as internal tests. Typically MOI is an easy option for the students to prove their eligibility in the English language, but this has not been widely recognized.
We experience a lot of inquiries to know the list of UK universities accepting MOI. You shouldn’t seriously consider MOI as your go-to solution. The best option is always to take the IELTS exam test and achieve the desired IELTS score to fulfil admission requirements. So here are our UK university lists that accept MOI from recognized Bangladeshi universities.
