English language requirements

All applicants must have an acceptable English Language qualification before they can be admitted to any of our programmes, whether their first language is English or not.

If you haven’t yet reached the required level of English, it may be possible to use the pre-sessional courses as an alternative means of satisfying the English language entry requirements. 

Working in the UK

There are a number of options available which enable international students to work both during and after their studies. Our Careers and Employability Centre, one of the best-rated in the UK, offers extensive free support to international students in finding employment opportunities both on and off campus.
