When can I apply?

For a September start, we recommend that you submit your application to us by May, if possible. The last date for applications is 1st September.

Language requirements

All teaching is conducted in English and applicants whose first language is not English need to demonstrate proficiency in English by sitting an IELTS test and submitting evidence of:

  • A minimum IELTS score of 6.5, or its equivalent, for the Full Time BA
  • A minimum IELTS score of 7.0, or its equivalent, for the Full Time Postgraduate Diploma


Please note that our Bursary scheme is not open to international students.

Application Process

The best way to start your student journey is to fill out a short student enquiry form which provides us with the required information to guide you further. Where we are able to offer a relevant course, you will be invited to submit an application form, proof of academic certificates and two references (please ensure your referees are happy to be contacted before submitting their contact details). You will then be invited to attend an Interview (via zoom). If your application is accepted by the next admission board, you will receive an offer letter.
