FAQ: 
HOW IS ACROSS THE POND ABLE TO OFFER FREE GUIDANCE & ADVICE SERVICE?

Across The Pond can offer this unique free service because our funding is provided from the British universities that have appointed us to represent them. This means we can offer students a choice in terms of programs, institutions and geographical locations in the UK.

DO ACROSS THE POND UK GUARANTEE ENTRY TO THEIR BRITISH PARTNER UNIVERSITIES?

No we cannot. All final decisions are made by the Admissions team at each university and decisions are based on your own academic qualifications, standardized test results, personal statement and reference, and in some cases, a portfolio of work or audition tape. However we believe that by using our service you will increase your chances of acceptance, because we make sure that you are applying to universities that match your subject preferences and academic ability.

DO I NEED A VISA TO STUDY IN THE UK?

It depends on where you are from. Our Advisors will help you determine if one is needed and will help you apply if that is the case.

ARE THE ENTRY REQUIREMENTS TO STUDY WITH BRITISH UNIVERSITIES THE SAME?

No. All of our partner universities vary and so it is best to check with an Across The Pond Advisor for the exact requirements needed. Department entry grades vary within the universities and can be higher than the minimum requirements of a university.

CAN I WORK WHILE MY STUDY IN THE UK?

In general international students can work for up to 20 hours a week while you study in the UK. For more information, visit the UK Border Agency (UKBA) website. Across The Pond’s British partner universities each have a careers service to help students find an appropriate job either on campus or in the local community. They will provide a wide range of help including, access to job adverts, guidance with writing CVs and job applications, support on preparing for job interview, and information about working in the UK.
