English for visiting and exchange students
These courses are only open to non-native speakers who come to the University as visiting or exchange students or on an ERASMUS programme (i.e., they are not open to international students enrolled on a full-time degree programme).
Applicants must have the IELTS proficiency level stated in the 'pre-requisite' section of the course description (or equivalent) in order to enrol.
If you do not have proof of the language proficiency required, you will be asked to take an online proficiency test. The details of the test can be found here.
Note that you cannot:
- Apply for courses at level IELTS 6.0 and 7.0 at the same time - see the FAQs for an explanation of this.
- Apply for both ULEN10062 and ULEN20062 (you may apply for ULEN10061 and then ULEN20062)
