English Language Requirements
Where your honours degree has not been studied in English, you will be required to provide evidence of English language competence. (Requirements may be subject to change in line with developments to UK Visas & Immigration policy).
For those applicants looking for additional English practice and study skills training prior to commencing their main course of study, the Effective Learning Service runs a four week Pre-Sessional English programme.
This programmes can also be taken by students who fall just short of meeting the English language requirements, as a means of reaching the desired level of English before the start of their main programme.
