We have a large community of international students here at Solent University and understand that the process of relocating to a new country can be challenging. Students coming from Sri Lanka 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 Sri Lanka to study, please see the information below. Alternatively, you can contact our international advice team.
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.
To be considered for entry to a foundation year (year 0 of a foundation year), students should hold the Standard XII with 70% or above.
For postgraduate courses, we look for qualifications that are equivalent to the British bachelor's degree. Students should hold a bachelor's degree, minimum 2nd division.
We are pleased to offer scholarships to students from Sri Lanka. These are available if you are applying for a full-time course at Solent University and are a self-funded, full-fee student.

As an Sri Lankan 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 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 visa application centre.
Speak with an official representative
Because you are already in the UK, we strongly recommend attending one of our open days to see the campus and speak to us in person.
However, if you would prefer to speak to someone in your local area about the opportunities here at Solent University, our own team visits various events around the UK, or you could contact one of our official representatives.
