Entry Requirements

What are the English language or IELTS requirements?

If you are applying from a country where your education is not taught in the English language, then you will need to have a suitable English language qualification for the reasons below:

  • To enable you to understand your lectures
  • To make your life in the UK as a student easier
  • To enable you to perform well in written assessments and examinations
  • To be able to successfully pass your course
For general international requirements, please visit our entry requirements page or see individual course pages for specific course requirements on our subject areas page.

To find out more about the support on offer for our international students, please visit our international page.

You can also chat with our staff directly every Wednesday from 2 pm - 4 pm and periodically throughout the working week.

Alternatively, chat with our current students who will be able to share this information with you and any other course-related queries.

Or book onto one of our Open Days or Course Advice Days to find out more and speak with the team.
