English language qualifications

This is a linguistically demanding programme and students whose first language is not English are required to have passed the IELTS (International English Language Testing System) examination before commencing the programme. The IELTS reading and writing tests taken by candidates must be the Academic Reading and Academic Writing tests.

If you require additional English Language training during your study, the University is able to provide tuition and arrange IELTS tests through its English Language Centre, details of which are available at www.liverpool.ac.uk/english-language-centre.

This course will only consider IELTS scores (other Secure English Language tests or Country specific tests such as WAEC or Malaysian SPM 1119 are not suitable for this programme).

Please be advised that TOEFL is no longer classified by UK Visas and Immigration as a Secure English Language Test (SELT). However, at the current time the university is continuing to accept TOEFL, at the required level, for entry on to Undergraduate and Postgraduate academic programmes.
