We are pleased that the Department for Education has now confirmed that EU students applying for university places in England in 2019/20 will continue to be eligible for student loans and grants, and entitled to home fee status for the duration of their course, even past the point that the UK leaves the EU.

Therefore, students wishing to undertake a postgraduate research programme will be assigned the ‘home’ fee status for the duration of their programme.

Please note the IELTS and TOEFL are only valid for two years.

If your IELTS or TOEFL expires before the start of your programme, you will need to take another official English test before we can issue you with a CAS for your visa application. This is a requirement of UKVI.

We require a minimum IELTS score of 6.5 overall or TOEFL (iBT) 90.

Each component of the English test should meet the minimum requirement of IELTS 5.5 in all components, TOEFL (iBT 22). For the writing component, we expect that you have achieved a minimum of 6.0 (IELTS).
