I already have an English Language qualification. Will I need to take any further qualifications?

If English is not your first language, we need to be sure that you will be able to cope with the fast pace of our courses. We also need to be certain that you will prosper in the supervision system, the cornerstone of our teaching provision. In supervisions, listening and speaking skills are just as important as reading and writing. A higher level qualification in English (e.g. A Level or IB), coupled with satisfactory interview performance, will usually mean that further English Language qualifications are not required. However, if we do not have this reassurance, with are likely to make our offer conditional on an IELTS score. More information on our Typical Offers.

Research conducted by the University has demonstrated that the 'gold standard' language qualification is IELTS, as it allows candidates to demonstrate their all round ability.
