All applicants to the University are required to show evidence of English Language proficiency.
The minimum English Language requirement for this course is either:
- GCSE English Language grade B/6, or;
- IELTS 6.5 overall, with 6.5 in writing and no other sub-section below 6.0, or;
- an acceptable equivalent qualification.
The UK Visas and Immigration (UKVI) requires that every student from outside the UK and the EU must show evidence of a minimum level of English Language in order to be granted a UK visa (Tier 4 visa) to study at undergraduate or postgraduate level. This level is often referred to as the 'B2 level'.
Additionally, individual courses may ask for specific English Language proficiency levels. In most cases these requirements are likely to be higher than the B2 level.
