English language

All international applicants must have an internationally recognised English language qualification, such as IELTS (International English Language Testing Service), Pearson Test of English (PTE) Academic or TOEFL iBT. There may be some exceptions to this requirement if you are from a majority English speaking country, in which case, a recent high school diploma or equivalent may be sufficient.

There may be other English language qualifications we can accept, depending on the exam board and period of time in which they were achieved. If you are unsure if you are in receipt of a suitable English language qualification and would like us to consider it, please attach the relevant documents to your application and we will assess this for you.
