For international applications we require a good pass in a Higher School Leaving Certificate from your own country or International Qualifications such as Cambridge International certificates or International Baccalaureat
Applicants should check the subject-specific pages for any other grade and subject entry requirements.
All international applicants will be asked to demonstrate a level of English language proficiency, regardless of their nationality or country of residence. You must be able to read, write, speak and understand the English language to a certain level to get the most out of your time with us. We accept a wide range of international English qualifications and certification such as IELTS.
If you are applying for a Student Visa, you will need to meet the English language requirement as set out by the UKVI. Your English language qualification must be taken with and issued from an approved provider and must be no more than two years old from the date of your visa application.
Applicants must have an IELTS or equivalent with minimum score of 5.5 or above (with no categories lower than 5.5).
