English Language Requirements

If English is not your first language you may be asked to undertake an English Language assessment to prove your level of English, unless otherwise stated on your country page. Normally, we would expect your English language qualification to be no more than two years old at the start date of your course. English language qualifications older than this can only be considered on a case-by-case basis. 

If you are required to apply for a Student Route visa to study in the UK you may be required to sit a  as part of the process of obtaining a Confirmation of Acceptance for Studies (CAS). Some of our courses have different English Language requirements, so please check the boxes below to find out what scores you will need and which tests we can accept.

The Home Office (UKVI) defines certain countries as "Majority English Speaking Countries" and nationals from these countries are not normally required to obtain an English language qualification for entry to our courses.  

Applicants who are nationals of these countries or have completed a qualification equivalent to a UK degree in one of them will automatically meet the UKVI Student Route visa requirements for English language, but the University may still require some evidence of English language ability to meet the general entrance requirements.

If鈥痽ou have completed a degree-level qualification which meets, or exceeds, the recognised standard of a UK bachelor’s degree* and English was the medium of instruction, we may be able to waive鈥痮ur English language requirement鈥痠f you provide us with your MoI letter. 

Our ability to waive the English language requirement based on your completion of a degree鈥痶aught in English鈥痠s in line with the UKVI’s English language requirements for a Student visa. Therefore, if you require a visa to study a degree in the UK, the UKVI does not require you to complete a Secure English Language Test (SELT) providing we are able to waive the English language requirement for your application following our assessment of your MOI letter.鈥 

MoI letters must be issued by a Registrar, Deputy Registrar, the Registrar's Office or Controller of Examinations (or equivalent).

MOI letters cannot be used for entry to our Professional Health programmes. 

If your degree was awarded more than 10 years prior to your 番茄影视 course start date, we will not be able to accept your MoI letter. 

If you do not have a MoI letter and your degree was awarded in the last five years, you may be able to use our English Language Test Waiver instead. Please see below for more information. 

*we use the services of to determine comparability to UK degree awards. 

We can waive the need for a specific English language test where an applicant has one of the qualifications from an approved institution, taken within five years of your course start date.
