Graduate Applicants - English Tests

When to take the test?

If you have already taken a test that meets the minimum level, you should upload the test certificate with the rest of your supporting documents when you make your application.

If you have already taken a test but it does not meet the minimum level, you should make arrangements to retest as soon as possible, and you should upload your current test certificate with the rest of your supporting documents when you make your application.

If you have not already taken a test, you should make arrangements to take the test as soon as possible. You may be required to retest and there can sometimes be long waiting times for a test place. You should complete and upload the following document with the rest of your supporting documents when you make your application to the University.

  • Upload the 'No current test certificate' document from the Competence in English >> section on Graduate Admissions website (under the heading 'When to take the test?').
  • If you are made an offer to study, you will be required to provide the test certificate at the required level at least two months before the start of your course, and your admission cannot confirmed without this evidence.

If you are made an offer to study on your proposed course, the Graduate Admissions Office may recommend a language assessment by the Language Centre and attendance on one of the EAP programmes which are also run here at the Language Centre.
