Information for international students
If English is not your first language you will be required to prove your competency in English, showing an IELTS score of at least 7.0 at postgraduate level.
If you are a non-EU/EEA national, you may need to apply to the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) for clearance from the Academic Technology Approval Scheme (ATAS) in order to study this course. This is a requirement for enrolment at the University or for obtaining a Confirmation of Acceptance for Studies (CAS) if you need to make a Tier 4 General visa application. Please note, an ATAS certificate is not needed for you to submit an application for a course at LSBU and to receive an offer.
The process for obtaining an ATAS certificate can take some time so it is important that you check whether you need one as early as possible so that you can make your application for the certificate to obtain it in good time. Failure to produce a valid ATAS certificate could result in delays to receiving your CAS or we may be unable to enrol you at the University.
