Overseas students whose first language is not English will be required to provide certified competence in English language in the form of British Council IELTS test band 7 or above, with a score of at least 7 in all components, or equivalent. If necessary, an offer of a place to read for a research degree mat be made subject to successful completion of an appropriate period of pre-sessional English for Academic Purposes training to enhance performance on the research degree programme above the minimum levels of competence outlined above. Applicants with a first degree taught wholly in English will not generally be required to provide other evidence of English Language proficiency.
If you do not have such academic qualifications we may consider your application individually, based on your personal, professional and work experience, and other formal qualifications.
