If your native language is not English you will need to demonstrate English language proficiency in line with our English Language Policy. For undergraduate study this means you need an IELTS test at 6.0 overall with no band below 5.5. For postgraduate study, IELTS with an overall score of 6.5 with no band below 6.0 is required. Alternatively we accept a minimum of 6/10 at Year 7 or 7.5 at Year 6 in English Language from the International Baccalaureate.
If you have completed at least 2 years of education entirely through English within the last 5 years (and have the official evidence to support this claim), you may be exempt from taking an IELTS.
Other English Language qualifications that may be acceptable for undergraduate study include:
Grade C or above from:
Cambridge English: Advanced/Cambridge Certificate in Advanced English
Cambridge English: Proficiency/Cambridge Certificate of Proficiency in English
Cambridge International GCSE English as a Second Language (extended curriculum)
GCSE English or iGCSE English
50 points from Pearson Test of English (PTE) Academic
Level 2 Pass from Cambridge ESOL Skills for Life.
