If your first language is not English (and your first degree was not taught in English) then you will have to take an English language test. If you have already taken such a test before you apply for a place then please include the certificate with your application form. Otherwise any offer of a place we make will be conditional on satisfactory completion of a suitable exam.

The standard entry requirement is one of the following:

  • TOEFL (OLD version) 550
  • TOEFL (NEW computerised version) 213
  • IELTS 6/6.5
  • Cambridge Certificate of Proficiency in English, Grade C
(We may accept lower in some circumstances).

Other tests may be acceptible but you must contact the postgraduate office regarding this.

For students who have not reached the required level of proficiency in technical English, there are a variety of courses and exams offered by the English Section of the University.

For more details of any aspect of the MSc/Diploma Programme, please contact us.
