Applications and qualifications English language requirements We recognise and warmly welcome a wide range of international school leaving certificates, matriculation certificates, junior college and polytechnic diplomas as standard entry qualifications to our undergraduate courses. Every effort will be made to equate international qualifications with UK standards of entry, and offers will be made on a like-for-like basis. Applications for entry to all years of our undergraduate courses should be made through the Universities and Colleges Admissions Service (UCAS) by applying online at www.ucas.com. If you would like an initial assessment of your qualifications, please contact our Admissions Office staff who will be able to offer advice. As well as the academic requirements for your studies, you will also have to demonstrate a proficiency in both spoken and written English. We are able to consider a wide range of qualifications to assess your English language ability, including many school-based qualifications. Where we include an English language requirement as part of your conditions, we will typically refer to the International English Language Testing System (IELTS). Our minimum IELTS requirements are an overall score of 6 with no individual elements lower than 5.5. This is our minimum entry level and some courses require a higher level of language proficiency. Please refer to the individual course pages for more information. 28 Belfast Cardiff Edinburgh London
