UK universities to recognize CBSE certificate for admission in UG prorgrammes
It’s a good news for students aspiring to take admission to undergraduate programmes in UK. The universities in UK have agreed to recognize plus-two certificates awarded by India’s Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE).
The Human Resource and Development Minister Smriti Irani said United Kingdom has also agreed to help the students facing visa related issues. “Till now, CBSE students faced a problem as their certificate was not being recognized by several institutes. We raised this issue with UK earlier also and I am happy to state that they have worked on our concern and all UK universities will recognize the certificates,” she said.
I minister shared the information while talking to reporters after chairing the 6th UK India Bilateral Education Forum meeting. The non-recognition of certificates was discouraging many students from taking admission in UK.
Institutes there insisted students clearing the CBSE exam to do an add-on course to be eligible for admission to undergraduate courses, that school education in India was a year less than the British system.
Some of them also demanded IELTS scores, which indicate a student’s proficiency in English. At the meeting, India also sought relaxation in the post-study work visa norms that allow students to work with a minimum salary threshold of 20,000 British Pounds a year.
