English Language Requirements

Full details of the English Language requirements specific to each Newcastle University undergraduate and postgraduate programme can be found via the course listings:

Applicants whose first language is not English require a recognised English Language qualification. As a guideline we usually require at least IELTS score 6.5 or equivalent. Applicants whose IELTS score is between 6.0 and 6.5, or equivalent, at the time of application will usually be expected to complete a pre-sessional course at the University before the programme begins.
