Italy / Entry requirements

General entry requirements

We operate a devolved admissions system and all admissions decisions are made within academic Schools. Admissions staff for individual courses reserve the right to judge the relevance and acceptability of any qualification or subject.

Our admissions staff assess each application holistically and judge whether the content and demand of the qualifications presented will have sufficiently prepared you to progress on to the course you’re applying for. Entry requirements will vary from one course to another and compulsory subject requirements may apply. Please refer to the specific entry requirements for your chosen course.

English language requirements

All applicants to the University (from the UK and overseas) are required to show evidence of English language proficiency.

For further information about our English language admissions policy, including a list of the most common English language qualifications we accept, please visit our English language requirements page.

Some Schools ask that the appropriate score has been met before you apply for a course, while other departments give conditional offers subject to applicants achieving our general entry requirement level of English Language proficiency before starting the course.

Other entry requirements

Please note that this is generic information only. Faculties and academic Schools have different entry requirements and some qualifications may not be acceptable for certain courses, so it is important to check with the School directly before you apply.

Some courses have additional entry requirements such as previous work experience, submission of written work with the application or previous study of a particular subject.
