Language requirements & support

We accept IELTS, Pearson and many Cambridge certificates as a proof of English language fluency on our degree courses, as well as many other English language qualifications.

If you are currently applying for a pre-degree course (for example pre-sessional or International foundation) and need a Tier 4 Visa to study at the University of Worcester you must have a Secure English Language Test at an approved test centre and it is an IELTS test for UK visas and Immigration (UKVI) purposes.

For degree courses or above (at Undergraduate or Postgraduate level) the following apply:

Undergraduate courses

Undergraduate courses usually require a minimum IELTS of 6.0 (with no less than 5.5 in any component) or Pearson 59 (with no less than 51 in each component) or various Cambridge certificates. Other equivalent English qualifications will also be considered. Some courses may require a higher score for professional accreditation or registration.

Postgraduate courses

Postgraduate courses usually require a minimum IELTS of 6.5 (with no less than 5.5 in any component) or Pearson 70 (with no less than 51 in each component) or various Cambridge certificates. Other equivalent English qualifications will also be considered.

Additional Language Support

The Language Centre organises a range of preparatory English Classes for students who need to improve their English before they enrol onto their Bachelor's or Master's courses.

We offer 6 and 10 week pre-sessional courses during the summer period as well as additional IELTS preparation classes
