English language requirements
Students from Ghana are not normally required to take an IELTS test in order to study at Stirling. It is a UK visa requirement that all international students must submit some proof of the English Language ability, regardless of whether English is their first language or not, but we can usually accept a student’s WASSCE English Language qualification to fulfil this requirement, provided they have achieved a C6 grade or higher. Some academic departments may request additional evidence of English-language proficiency, particularly where a WASSCE qualification is more than 10 years old. Additional evidence may include proof that students have studied at a university where English is the main language of instruction. We require an official letter from your University or College.
