English language requirements
All students entering the University must provide evidence of their ability to use English sufficiently well to be able to fully participate in and benefit from their intended programme of study and the University accepts a wide range of language tests and language qualifications. The following pages list typical requirements for the most widely-used English language proficiency tests. Most English language tests have a validity of two years from the date shown on the certificate.
International students from outside the European Union, who require a visa in order to study at the University must:
- satisfy the English language requirements for their chosen programme
- hold a 'secure' English language test certificate (a "SELT") for the purposes of a Tier 4 student visa application.

Please note that some Schools also set specific entry requirements in addition to general language entrance requirements.
