Some universities until now used to accept a Medium of Instruction (MOI) letter but now they have stopped.

A pre-sessional English course is what universities/colleges offer if a student has not achieved the required IELTS score for the course. Universities can only accept you onto the Pre-Sessional English programme if you have a valid UKVI-for-IELTS result taken from an approved centre, dated no more than 2 years before the start of your Pre-Sessional programme.
Depending on your score you can do a program anywhere from 4 weeks to 20 weeks of English before you start your degree.
To apply for a pre-sessional English course, you have to have given a UKVI IELTS, not more than 2 years old and you have to have been a an offer for a degree by the concerned university. Once you have a conditional offer based on your IELTS score, you usually will have a link to the Pre-sessional English courses either within the offer or in a separate email.
You will be advised by your representative if you are eligible for a Masters or a Pre-Masters depending on your qualifications. Sometimes, they might suggest a Pre-Masters even if you qualify for a Masters because you might need more support in areas like writing a dissertation, research methods etc. If you are not sure, we can help.
No, you cannot do this. The reason for this is that the CAS that is issued for the Pre-Masters CAS is an integrated CAS leading onto the University pathway which the Pre-Masters is intended for.

Unfortunately, if your visa is rejected, depending on the grounds of rejection, you will be offered a chance for an appeal/review. You will need to contact your visa representative and see whether they are willing to take this forward on your behalf for you with the help of a lawyer if needed. Of course, there are associated charges with this process like the lawyer's fees. At Anchorheart, you can contact our office in Ahmedabad who will be dealing with visas.
