English language requirements for undergraduate students
Do I need to provide an English language test score?
Whether you will need to provide an English language test score to evidence your English language ability depends on your educational background. Decisions are normally taken based on the criteria below, but the University of St Andrews reserves the right to ask for additional evidence of English language ability.
Faculties of Science, Arts and Divinity
You should not need to provide an English language test score to evidence your English language ability if one of the following applies (click on headings below for details):
Students who cannot provide any of the evidence above will need to submit a valid English language test score as indicated below.
Faculty of Medicine
If you have completed you final four years of secondary or high school education in an English-medium school, this may in some cases be considered as evidence of English language ability. This will be considered on a case by case basis at the point of application. Please contact email@example.com for more information.
Which English language test score should I provide?
The table below indicates a language profile for each Faculty. Clicking on a profile link will take you to the list of acceptable tests and scores that you may submit to meet English language requirements for your intended degree.
Test scores are only normally accepted if obtained within two years of the programme start date.
Typically, profiles listed here will include a score on the University’s own 4-week Pre-sessional Course, which can be taken to meet English language requirements. See more details on the University of St Andrews Academic English Pre-sessional courses.
