If you are an international student then you probably already have an English language
certificate of proficiency such as IELTS or TOEFL. However, like most other British
universities we require all newly registered students whose first language is not
English to sit a short English language test of our own.
This provides us with a single, consistent measure of English language proficiency across
the whole of our international student body. The assessment is short and informal. It's not a
pass/fail assessment and the results do not affect entry to study. You must attend the combined
assessment information/registration session as indicated below.
