The IELTS standard of English language for undergraduate/bachelors programmes is average of 6.0 overall with a minimum of 5.5 in all elements.

Students with Higher National Certificates and Higher National Diplomas from a UK awarding body may be eligible for substantial exemptions.

Postgraduate programmes and research

Requirements will vary dependent on recognition of university and scoring system used. As a guide, a Bachelor’s degree with a score of between 60-80% is considered comparable to a UK 2.1

The IELTS standard of English language for postgraduate programmes is average of 6.5 overall with a minimum of 6.0 in all elements.
