Academic requirements

Our general entry requirement is a UK Honours degree (minimum second class lower) or international equivalent. Our Admissions Office staff have extensive knowledge of a wide range of qualifications from all over the world and will assess your qualifications against our UK entry requirements. Applications are considered on an individual basis and the information provided here is intended as a general guide. Holding this level of qualification does not guarantee entry and some programmes may have higher entry requirements.

Requirements for individuals from Thailand

  • Bachelor's degree with 2.15 above

Full entry requirements for individual courses can be found on the individual course pages. Please read them carefully as there can sometimes be additional requirements.

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:

In addition to these minimum scores you are also expected to achieve a balanced score across all elements of the test. We may 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 the details of your course for 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.

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

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

Working with a team of well-qualified and experienced tutors, we will help you:

  • Improve your English language skills to satisfy our entry requirement,
  • Develop and improve your knowledge and use of academic English,
  • Prepare for the kinds of assignments you will complete on your course,
  • Gain the confidence and skills needed to succeed in your academic studies,
  • Introduce you to life in the UK and to UK culture.

We offer winter and summer courses each year, with students enjoying a choice of three course lengths, over 20, 10 or five weeks.

The winter programme has been designed for applicants for research programmes starting in the summer. Applicants for courses starting in September/October are strongly advised to apply for the summer English programme. Applicants must provide their most recent UKVI IELTS test to be considered, as we are unable to consider an international applicant who has taken an alternative English language test.

Applicants who have not met the standard entry requirements for any of the above courses should contact the Pre-sessional team further advice and guidance. All applications are considered on their merits, on a case-by-case basis.

If you need any further information please get in touch.
