British universities are familiar with U.S. candidates . Their websites usually list what they need, something like 3.5 points of access to grade 5 and above 700 SAT math and writing . If you do not meet these requirements , some offer a foundation year to bring you up to standard British university as Americans are about two years ago.
Your GPA does not matter much and British universities have no interest in extra- curricular activities . They want to ensure they can cope with academics .
You will study one subject at university and will be much deeper than in the United States. General knowledge of the subject will be at Masters level , many universities be given a direct - to- track teachers after only four years.
Costs vary depending on the university . Imperial College I think the most expensive at about £ 22,000 for tuition alone. Expect your living expenses to run another £ 10,000 on top of that. No grants or loans for international students.

The above is correct. Ehhhh .... I would not say that the requirements for a bachelor of arts (which is what you're wanting) are so strict, though ... Actually not. And no matter extra-curricular much as simply writing a personal statement on UCAS.co.uk (your college application --- all do over here, not directly to the school and in the U.S. .) why it would be good for the subject you want to study.
Anyway, my only university made a requirement to obtain a 3.0 GPA overall ... so if you have to, at least then you will be fine in most schools and I go to a decent school. Probably will ask higher in Cambridge or Oxford, though, obviously. ... But those schools are out of the price range of any international student, unless your parents are filthy rich.
I would not recommend any universities in London either because it is too expensive to live there and is easily accessible from most UK cities. Look in places not so well known to Americans as Norwich and Canterbury. There are tons.
Sounds unbelievable to study abroad at first, but then beat her and vertigo like you're living the normal life that has always lived. However, it is easier to travel around Europe here, so that's a plus.
So .... costs. Yes, I'd say the cheapest would probably get about $ 15,000 a year. I can pay about $ 18,500 a year. Living costs (including housing and food) are approximately $ 5,000 or more (at least for me and I am a moderate investor). Keep in mind everything is $ 1.60 per dollar here.
Oh, and I'm extremely poor and that allows because I feel the quality of education here is worth my money and better. Federal Loans can use toward her, but that does not cover everything that you will need a cosigner to get private loans through Sallie Mae.
