Easiest Universities to Get into UK

Getting into your favourite university is not that easy. Apart from a high GPA, you also need to have a good profile and excellent academics. 

The institutions mentioned in the article have a higher acceptance rate, so, getting an admit here can be comparatively easy than their peers. However, a high acceptance rate doesn't translate into the quality of the institution. It may be because of the wide range of courses offered by the university.

Generally, we have a perception that the higher acceptance rate affects the quality of education and might affect the reputation of the university. This is true in the case of top-tier universities as they receive a high amount of applications and have a limited number of seats, hence only a handful are selected. Having a high acceptance rate does not reflect the quality rather it shows that students prefer course selection and at times it shows the limited capacity of the campus. Even some of the popular UK universities like Exeter and Durham have a 70% or more acceptance rate.
