English language requirements

To meet your full potential at Edge Hill University, you need a good standard of English language. Relevant evidence of your English language proficiency is mandatory to study at undergraduate or postgraduate level.

Any student requiring a visa to study in the UK must provide evidence of a minimum level of English language (Common European Framework (CEFR) B2 level) in order to be granted a Student Route visa (previously known as a Tier 4 visa). Some of our courses require you to demonstrate a higher level of English proficiency or formal English Language qualification that is comparable to UK GCSE. This will be listed on the academic requirements for the individual course.

Please note: we do not accept letters of proficiency.
