Competence in English requirements

If you’re a non-EU international student from a country where the vast majority of people are not English-speaking, you’re usually required to take a Secure English Language Test (SELT).

If you’re planning to study a course which is below degree level, you must take a SELT with one of UK Visas and Immigration’s (UKVI) approved English language test providers, unless we have already accepted your high school qualification.

The application process depends on the level of study you are applying for.
