Why study at Cranfield

English language requirements

If you are an international student you will need to provide evidence that you have achieved a satisfactory test result in an English qualification. The minimum standard expected from a number of accepted courses are as follows:

IELTS - 6.5
TOEFL - 92
Pearson PTE Academic - 65
Cambridge English Scale - 180
Cambridge English: Advanced - C
Cambridge English: Proficiency - C
Trinity College London Integrated Skill in English III - Minimum overall score of Pass

In addition to these minimum scores you are also expected to achieve a balanced score across all elements of the test. We reserve the right to reject any test score if any one element of the test score is too low.

Some courses may specify higher test scores so please check your course webpage for details of the English language requirements you will be expected to meet.

We can only accept tests taken within two years of your registration date (with the exception of Cambridge English tests which have no expiry date).

Students requiring a Tier 4 (General) visa will also need to meet the UK Home Office Tier 4 (General) student visa English language requirements . The UK Home Office are not currently accepting TOEFL or TOEIC tests for Tier 4 (General) visa applications. Other restrictions from the UK Home Office may apply from time to time and we will advise applicants of these restrictions where appropriate.

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

If you have not met the appropriate English language requirement for your course, you could consider one of our Pre-sessional English for Academic Purposes (EAP) courses. They are offered to international students who do not meet the minimum scores as stated above.

English language classes are also run by The British Council at language schools in your own country.

Kaplan International College London (KICL) offers preparation programmes for those who do not meet our direct entry requirements. Students who study the Graduate Diploma, specialising in either Business, Science or Engineering, can then progress directly to Cranfield. KICL can even integrate Pre-sessional English Language modules with the Graduate Diploma to help improve your English language skills. On completion of the course to the required grade and conditions stipulated in your offer letter, you are guaranteed progression to Cranfield University. More information about KICL.
