These should be no longer than one minute each. One should be a classical speech, the other from a published modern play. 3. Interview: Please research a local OR national OR international cultural event e.g. a story from your local newspaper, an event like the London 2012 Olympics or the Brexit referendum. Be prepared to discuss: a) why this event is significant to you b) your ideas for directing an imaginary new play based on this event. Think about where you might perform the play, what it might look like and who the ‘characters’ might be. 4.

TestGradeAdditional details
IELTS (Academic)6
PTE Academic50

The standard entry requirement for this programme is IELTS 6.0 with no element lower than 5.5. However, you can begin your 3-year degree programme with IELTS 5.5. Our International Route allows you to take 4 credit-bearing modules in International English Studies (IES) as part of your first year studies. This means you study 4 modules in your chosen subject and 4 in International English. The IES Modules allow you to focus on personal language development and your use of English as an academic language. Then, at the end of your first year, you’ll have all the necessary language skills to transfer to full study of your main subject. If you have an IELTS score under 5.5 you can still begin a 3-year degree programme with us. In this case we provide a 5 or 10 week intensive Presessional Programme in English language and academic skills. For the 10 week Programme you’ll need IELTS 4.5, and IELTS 5.0 for the 5 week Programme.

Further details of our international entry requirements can be found on our website.
