Undergraduate English Language Requirements

All students must meet English language entry requirements for all programmes of study at QMUL. The Academic IELTS requirement for every Undergraduate degree programme is published below, according to the academic department within which your chosen course of study is administered.

You may produce alternative qualifications to demonstrate your level of English Language proficiency. The qualification must be equivalent to the corresponding IELTS requirement.

If you will require a Tier 4 visa to study in the UK, you must meet the minimum English Language requirements to meet the UKVI regulations. For applicants to Undergraduate courses, the minimum requirement is 5.5 in all four skills of IELTS, or equivalent in other qualifications (although many of our courses require higher grades.)

If you fall slightly below our standard English language requirements, you may consider one of our Pre-sessional English courses. Please note that you will require a UK government approved Secure English Language Test (SELT) for entry to pre-sessional courses. Only IELTS for UKVI and Trinity ISE are currently accepted. The Pre-sessional English course requirements are also published below, according to the academic department within which your chosen course of study is administered.

Approved English language tests must have been taken within two years of the proposed course start date.
