What can I do if my English is not good enough?

If your academic qualifications meet our entry requirements but your English is below the standards described above, we may make you a conditional offer.

We may suggest you apply for the International Foundation and Language Programme (IFLP) if you have not already done so.

Alternatively, we might require you to attend a Pre-sessional English Course. The amount of time it will take to reach the required level for entry to an International Foundation Programme will depend on your current English language level. At the end of the Pre-sessional course you will be assessed using TEEP (an integrated skills exam); you will not have to take another external exam such as IELTS.
