Academic requirements

Our general entry requirement is a UK Honours degree (minimum second class lower) or international equivalent. Our Admissions Office staff have extensive knowledge of a wide range of qualifications from all over the world and will assess your qualifications against our UK entry requirements. Applications are considered on an individual basis and the information provided here is intended as a general guide. Holding this level of qualification does not guarantee entry and some programmes may have higher entry requirements.

Requirements for individuals from UAE

  • Bachelor degree with 2.1 to 2.6 out of 4 GPA

Full entry requirements for individual courses can be found on the individual course pages. Please read them carefully as there can sometimes be additional requirements.

English language requirements

If you are an international student you will need to provide evidence that you have achieved a satisfactory test result in an English qualification. The minimum standard expected from a number of accepted courses are as follows:

  • IELTS Academic – 6.5
  • TOEFL – 92
  • Pearson PTE Academic – 65
  • Cambridge English Scale – 180
  • Cambridge English: Advanced – C
  • Cambridge English: Proficiency – C

In addition to these minimum scores you are also expected to achieve a balanced score across all elements of the test. We may reject any test score if any one element of the test score is too low. Some courses may specify higher test scores so please check the details of your course for the English language requirements you will be expected to meet.

We can only accept tests taken within two years of your registration date, with the exception of Cambridge English tests, which have no expiry date.
