English Requirement

As Canada teach through the medium of English and English is used widely for administrative purposes, it is expected that nationals from Canada would not be required to have an English Language qualification. They are thus exempt from providing proof to meet the UK Visa and Immigrations requirements and the University's requirements for English language ability.
