We have a large community of international students here at Southampton Solent University and understand that moving to a new country to study can be a challenge. Students coming from Pakistan 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 Pakistan to study, please see the information below. Alternatively, you can contact the British Council's Pakistan 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 (Bachelor of Arts/Commerce - Pass). A portfolio is also required for most of our art and design courses. 

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

Visa information

As a Pakistani 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 your local British Embassy or High Commission.

Speak with an official representative

Solent has a number of official representatives around the world. They give you the chance to talk about opportunities here at Southampton Solent with someone in your own country.
