English language requirements for students from Iran

Applicants are required to achieve a minimum of IELTS 6 or equivalent. Some academic departments may require a higher score. Details of the exact requirements for each academic programme can be found in the Prospectus or on the relevant department's web pages. Other English language qualifications are accepted.

More recognised English language qualifications

Most academic departments are able to make conditional offers to applicants who do not meet the English language requirements when they apply for an academic programme. A conditional offer is subject to applicants achieving the required level of English before starting the programme.

Applicants with a first degree taught in English will not generally be required to provide other evidence of English Language proficiency.

For students who need to improve their English before the start of their academic programme, the University's English Language Teaching Centre provides long and short term English preparation programmes.
