Is English not your native language?

Students must be able to demonstrate their competence in English in order to benefit fully from their course of study or research. Non-EEA nationals must also satisfy the UK Visas and Immigration (UKVI) immigration requirements for English language before the University can issue a Confirmation of Acceptance for Studies (CAS) for visa purposes.

Please view the Coursefinder for details of the English Language requirements for entry to individual degree programmes.
