English Requirement

As the USA teach through the medium of English and English is used widely for administrative purposes, it is expected that nationals from the States 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.

American citizens, and/or those who have successfully graduated from a NARIC recognised American institution, there is no language requirement for PG study.
