English language requirements

Applicants should note that all students, at the time of their admission to the University, require to be sufficiently fluent in the English language to be able to derive maximum benefit from courses taught in that language. It is necessary, therefore, for those whose first language is not English to demonstrate a measure of English language ability.

Students from the EU/EEA/Switzerland, including students through Erasmus student exchange agreements should prove their English language ability in one of the following ways:

  1. include in an applicant’s reference letter an attestation that their English language level is suitable to carry out the academic programme to which the applicant has applied; or
  2. evidence of having passed one of the approved tests
  3. evidence that your primary university subject of study is English.

Students from outside of the EU/EEA and who’s native language is not English must provide evidence of having passed one of the approved tests. More information on entry requirements including the approved tests can be found on our Undergraduate English Language page.

Students from native English speaking countries do not need to provide evidence of their English language ability unless requested.
