Degrees are valid as long as you have studied them. If you have taken a different English test or grade, this table shows the equivalent scores or grades you need to match your course's IELTS score. With a growing number of universities accepting Duolingo test results as meeting the English language requirements for international students, it now has an excellent alternative to IELTS and other exams. If you cannot see the score of the English qualification you are taking, please contact the admissions team.
If English is not your native language, you will need to provide official proof of your English language proficiency. Most universities in the world in English-speaking countries have prescribed a score of 6 or higher on the IELTS test for admission to the courses requested. Please note that some courses, such as Nursing and Social Work, have specific English language requirements (usually IELTS). The Duolingo English test has been designed to assess language ability in the real world by measuring the candidates' reading, writing, listening and speaking skills.
TOEFL (iBT) TOEFL, or the English as a Foreign Language test, is a long-established form of English language proficiency, already accepted by many universities in the UK. Generally, you won't need to provide further proof of your English language ability if you studied in a mostly English-speaking country and are applying for a bachelor's or master's degree. International students wishing to apply for a PEP course must submit a UKVI approved English language test result, sometimes referred to as the Secured English Language Test (SELT).
