English language requirements

All overseas applicants whose first language is not English must have a standard level of English that will enable them to benefit fully from their course of study.

The majority of our courses request an IELTS score of 6.5 or 7.0. Please search for your course to check the required score.

You can view a list of the recognised English language qualifications required for standard undergraduate and postgraduate courses. You can also find further information about English Language Programmes.

Please contact the International Office if you have any questions about English language requirements or have questions about coming to Cardiff from overseas:
