English language support

While we require all non-native English speakers to meet our standard entry requirements, we are keen to support international students whose first language is not English.

We strongly encourage all non-native English speakers on study abroad programmes to undertake our free English language proficiency test on arrival. This test enables you to identify the areas of English language in which you would benefit most from additional support and to take advantage of the corresponding non-credit, in-sessional language support courses at no cost.

We have also developed a range of credit-bearing courses for non-native English speakers, find out more on the University Centre for Academic English website.
