We are aware that due to the current global situation, obtaining your TOEFL certificate (or equivalent) is proving to be more difficult than usual. However, evidence of your language proficiency will still be required in order to participate in the exchange programme and you will need to have achieved a minimum level of B2 (or equivalent).
We would recommend completing your application form to the best of your ability and informing us if you have not yet been able to obtain your certificate. We will then be able to provide further advice and guidance in due course. Please note that we may ask for confirmation from your home institution as a place holder whilst you await your official certificate.
Please refer to the university guidelines on English language requirements, for students who require a TIER 4 visa (.pdf) or EU/EEA/Non-Tier 4 applicants (.pdf).
