English language requirements for study

You need to achieve a certain level of English to qualify for a place on your chosen course/programme.

Different courses/programmes need different levels of language skills. We refer to these skill levels as ‘profiles’. The profile for your chosen course/ programme is shown on the course/programme page.

The tests and levels you need to achieve each profile are on each profile page.

Applying

You do not need to have reached the required level before you apply.

We will look at your academic qualifications and decide what offer we will make you. If you haven’t yet reached the required English level, we will give you a target grade in your offer.

What you need to do

If you have the required level

If you have the required level you must include it in your application. You do not need to do anything else.

If you have started but not completed the required level

If you haven’t reached the required level, you will be given a target grade in your offer.

You must tell us when you reach the target grade so we know you have met the requirement.

If you don’t have the required level

If you don’t have the required level you could try one of the following:

  • Taking a pre-sessional language course offered by the University
  • Taking an IELTS Academic test
  • Taking a different course in your home country which qualifies (see the list under the profile)
  • Re-sitting the language tests in your home country to reach the required level
