We have a large community of international students here at Southampton Solent University and understand that the process of relocating to a new country can be challenging. Students coming from Bangladesh can find a range of advice about obtaining a visa and studying in the UK right here on the Solent website.

For more specific advice about coming from Bangladesh to study, please see the information below. Alternatively, you can contact the British Council's Bangladesh offices or our own international advice team.

Entry requirements

As a general guide, we look for qualifications that are equivalent to the British high school A-levels. A portfolio is also required for most of our art and design courses.

The following qualifications will be considered:

  • Bachelor of Arts, Science or Commerce (Pass) when awarded after three years of study, or
  • Higher Secondary Certificate (HSC) may be considered for a foundation year (level 0 of a bachelor's degree).

For postgraduate courses, we look for qualifications that are equivalent to the British bachelor's degree. Students should hold:

  • Master's degree in arts, science or commerce.

Visa information

As a Bangladeshi national, you will need to apply for a visa to come and study in the UK. When you have met all the conditions of entry for a full-time course at Southampton Solent University (including payment of deposit and course acceptance), you will be sent a Certificate of Acceptance for Study (CAS) number. You will need this document to apply for a student visa.

You should make your application for a visa at the local British Embassy or High Commission.
