Meeting our English language requirements
If you need support to meet the required level, you may be able to attend a presessional English course.
Presessional courses teach you academic skills in addition to English language.
Our Centre for English Language Education
is accredited by the British Council for the teaching of
English in the UK.
If you successfully complete your presessional course to the required
level, you can then progress to your degree course. This means that
you won't need to retake IELTS or equivalent.
For on-campus presessional English courses, you must take IELTS for UKVI
to meet visa regulations. For online presessional courses, see our CELE
webpages for guidance
International students must have valid UK immigration permissions for any courses or study period
where teaching takes place in the UK. Student route visas can be issued for eligible students studying
full-time courses. The University of Nottingham does not sponsor a student visa for students studying part-time
courses. The Standard Visitor visa
route is not appropriate in all cases. Please contact the university’s Visa and
Immigration team if you need advice about your visa options.
We recognise that applicants have a variety of experiences and follow different pathways to postgraduate study.
We treat all applicants with alternative qualifications on an individual basis. We may also consider relevant work experience.
