English Language Requirements

International students applying to study with us are required to have passed an approved English language test at or above the appropriate level with one of the test providers approved by the UK Home Office (UK Visas and Immigration). Please note that nationals of a majority English-speaking country (as set out by the UK Home Office), and students who already hold a degree that was taught in English in a majority English-speaking country and is equivalent to a UK bachelor's degree or above, are exempt from the English language requirement.

(You can see a list of which countries are exempted here: https://www.gov.uk/tier-4-general-visa/knowledge-of-english)
