International applicants need to be aware of the additional regulations that are applicable to them, particularly in relation to English Language.

All students requiring a Tier 4 (student) visa must meet the Home Office's requirements in addition to those of the University.

This means obtaining a minimum of IELTS 5.5 or equivalent in all four components (Speaking, Listening, Reading and Writing) in addition to an overall level of IELTS 6.0 (or equivalent).
