Academic requirements

Most courses are looking for a UK Honours degree (minimum second class lower) or international equivalent.

We assess all applications individually and consider the equivalence of your qualifications against UK degrees, using advice from UK NARIC, the National Agency responsible for providing information, advice and opinion on qualifications and skills from all over the world.

Requirements for applicants from Thailand

The minimum qualification you need is a Bachelor degree from a recognised university. This is a general guide and holding this level of qualification does not guarantee entry.

English language requirements

You will need to provide a satisfactory English test result that meets the requirements for the course you have applied for. Some courses require a higher test score, please check the course page for details. Our minimum requirements 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 reserve the right to reject any test score if any one element of the test score is too low.

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 must ensure they can meet the English language requirements set out by UK Visas and Immigration (UKVI) and we recommend booking a IELTS for UKVI test.

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. We offer Winter/Spring and Summer programmes each year to offer holders:
