Test Grade Additional details
Cambridge English Advanced Level B2 B2 First, formerly known as Cambridge English: First (FCE).
IELTS (Academic) 6.0 An overall band score of 6.0, with none of the four skills below 5.5.

Students from outside the UK may be required to demonstrate their level of English by providing proof of an English language certificate or other qualification. This is particularly the case where a student: • is from a country where English is not an official/first language, or; • has previous qualifications which include English as a second language, or; • has previous qualifications which have not been studied through the medium of English. The approximate guideline minimum English level required for entry at level 4 is "B2" on the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR). This roughly equates to: • IELTS - an overall band score of 6.0, with none of the four skills below 5.5, or; • B2 First, formerly known as Cambridge English: First (FCE) **Please note that other English language certificates/qualifications are available, and may be considered, and the College looks at each applicant on an individual basis.**
