To study at a British university and to enrol on a course in our School, you need a high level of English. You will need to be able to confidently write academic essays and reports, listen to lectures and take notes, summarise academic texts, give presentations and take part in discussions. Therefore, for courses that lead to professional registration you will need to have IELTS 7.0 to meet professional and statutory body requirements, which allows you to apply for registration once you have successfully completed a course. Once you begin your full degree programme, you also have access to free-of-charge English language classes and services to help you continue to improve.

We offer a range of generous scholarships and discounts for international students, details of which can be found on our website.
