• English Language Qualifications

    Independent schools will want to ensure there is enough proficiency in the English language for students to get the most out of their lessons, their friendships and as a basis to solidly improve their language skills.

    Universities require a more formal language ability – IELTS 6.5 is the lowest language standard at which universities will accept international students – this is to ensure students can fully access and understand the course they have enrolled in. All potential degree students will need to take an IELTS UKVI language test.
