Further important information
If you hold a professional qualification and/or postgraduate qualification without a full first degree, you cannot be considered for admission to a Graduate Diploma
The language of instruction, reading and assessment is English. To succeed on our programmes you need a good level of competence in English. If you doubt your ability in written or spoken English we advise you take a course and test in English language before enrolling on the programme.
Required standard of English
You will usually meet the English language requirement for undergraduate programmes if you:
hold a UK GCSE / GCE O level in English at grade C or above
have five years secondary schooling taught solely in English or have passed GCE A levels or IB in essay-based subjects
have passed an International Foundation programme that permits entry onto a recognised UK bachelor degree
hold a full Postgraduate award, or a full first degree or Associate degree taught and examined in English from an institute that is acceptable to the University
have passed, within the past three years, an Associate degree, Diploma or Higher Diploma awarded by an acceptable institute / polytechnic / university in Hong Kong, Malaysia or Singapore, or
have passed, within the past three years, a test of proficiency in English language from an organisation acceptable to the University.
Where an applicant does not meet the required English language level but believes they can demonstrate the required level for admission the University may, at its discretion, consider the application.
Please note if an applicant satisfies one of the above conditions yet provides evidence of a test of proficiency in English language, awarded within the past three years, which is below the University’s minimum requirements then they will be required to retake such a test before being offered admission
