    Not meant to discourage you though.
    while applying to UK .. be sure that none of the great universities have financial aid.. Some scholarships are available which are astronomically competitive....

    You must apply via UCAS application, requirements differ according to schools like LSE requires you to take APs ( probably five of them ) or an entrance etc.
    Cambridge has its own....

    Unless you have studied A levels and scored astronomical marks...

    I'm not from Nepal but I thought I'd help out here.
    for overseas students

    LSE undergraduate support scheme

    The LSE undergraduate support scheme (USS) is designed to help overseas students who do not have the necessary funds to meet all their costs of study. In 2008, the School disbursed nearly £1 million in entrance awards available to self-financing students of all nationalities. This financial aid is available only for study at LSE. If you are made an offer of admission, we will advise you on how to apply to the USS online. This system is able to provide an immediate indication of an applicant's eligibility for assistance. In the first instance, you will be assessed on the basis of your financial circumstances. Awards are renewable for each year of your course. Applications will be considered between the end of February and the middle of August.

    For UK schools, you generally won't see any financial aid.

    You apply to study a course and generally most people don't switch courses. This also means that you need to be absolutely sure what you want to study.

    Since you've done the A-levels, offers will be made depending on your grades.

    If you could give more information about the schools you want to apply to, I can help you more.

    There is a community in the UK called "The Student Room" which is comparable to College Confidential but for UK universities only. It's quite helpful and worth checking out.
