Thank you CR001 for your reply.I asked this because I saw other topic of someone's ilr was refused because of submitting a master degree from a UK university as evidence of English language requirements.Thank you.

The other user did not have a masters degree. He had a professional course qualification which was equivalent to (but not) a masters degree. There is a difference.

A UK Masters Degree is definitely accepted, no rule change.

Hi,

Appreciate the thread was last updated few months ago but wondering if I can get some advice please? Does it apply the same if the institute where the degree was taught was outside the UK but affiliated to a UK university and hence awarded by the same UK university?

Thanks.
