7 Universities in the UK Where You Can Study with a Low TOEFL Score

If you’re planning on studying in the UK, you probably know that British universities accept IELTS and Cambridge Advanced tests for international student admissions.

However, in order to attract a more diverse student audience (including internationals from the U.S.) some institutions also accept TOEFL iBT test. What’s even better is that you also don’t need the best TOEFL exam scores to get into a good university in the UK! Plenty of good institutions ask applicants for lower-to-medium range TOEFL.

If you’re interested in a Master’s degree, here are ten universities in the UK that accept a TOEFL iBT score between 79 and 93 and examples of fields of study you can apply to with this score.
