Entry requirements for the Pre-Masters program

You must have earned a passing grade on an undergraduate degree from a recognized university. A minimum IELTS score of 5.5 is expected for a standard two-semester Pre-Masters program.

You can take extra IELTS training lessons at our London Language Centre if you haven’t yet achieved the necessary score for your chosen curriculum. To develop your reading, writing, chatting, and listening skills, take an IELTS practice exam.
