The level of English that international students require varies depending on the course.
English Language Requirements
Foundation, Undergraduate and Postgraduate Degrees
From 6 April 2012, international students coming to study at degree level will need to speak English at an "upper intermediate" (B2) level. The UK Border Agency has an official list of the different English language tests available to you and what grades you need to achieve. This list also gives you guidance about the levels of English you need before you can study in London.
There are also a number of other English language test providers, so you should always check with your chosen university which qualifications they accept.
Many universities offer English courses if you need to improve your English language skills. You can also find accredited English Language courses on our English Language Schools in London website.
