Cranfield University has a vibrant international community and is historically a popular destination for students from India

We have been warmly welcoming students from India since the 1940’s. Cranfield University also has a long history of partnering with the Indian defence industry. For over 70 years, we have educated Indian students both from Government and industry. We forged new partnerships with Manipal University, the Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur, Aadyah Aerospace Private Limited and the Government of Telangana among others to provide education and research.

As an exclusively postgraduate university with a student to staff ratio - 7:1 that is one of the best for any university in the UK and the world, Cranfield represents a unique offering for Indian students thinking of studying in the UK.

We currently have 219 students from India studying with us.

Indian students at Cranfield benefit from excellent teaching delivered by our world-renowned academics, state-of-the art facilities, industrial-scale research and real-life industry projects with leading global organisations.

96% of our graduates are employed or in further study. 

Cranfield provides a professional working environment but our Indian students also enjoy campus life and get involved in a wide variety of clubs, societies and associations including the Cranfield Indian Society.

English test notes:

  • We verify all test scores with the test providers.
  • We are only able to accept tests taken within two years of the course start date.
  • All elements of the test results must be demonstrated in one test, we are unable to accept a combination of scores across two or more tests.
  • In extremely rare circumstances we may reject a test score if one element of the test has a very low score. This would only occur if we believed this would impact on your ability to study with us or if the score did not meet UK Visas and Immigration (UKVI) requirements to study in the UK.

What can I do if I don't meet the English language requirement for my chosen course?

If you have taken a test but not reached the required score you may be able to attend one of our Pre-sessional English for Academic Purposes (EAP) courses:
