^Students on the English language course do not need to take an additional IELTS test at the end of their course to progress on to their Pre-Masters Programme. You will be assessed on your Academic English Skills (AES) grade at the International Study Centre (you will be required to achieve a minimum of 40% in all areas).
†You can study your English language course (1 term only) and the Pre-Masters Programme with one visa.
Information about English language requirements
All students' English and numeracy skills will be tested on arrival, and study plans may be altered accordingly. This may incur additional costs.
The English language entry requirements stated are for information regarding entry to the course. If you are applying to study in the UK under the Student student route it may be necessary for you to submit a Secure English Language Test (SELT) as part of your visa application. If you don’t have a current IELTS grade, you may still apply to the International Study Centre. Please contact us to find out about alternative assessment of your English Language level.
