IMPORTANT NOTE: Since April 2014 the ETS tests (including TOEFL and TOEIC) are no longer accepted for Tier 4 visa applications to the United Kingdom. The university might still accept these tests to admit you to the university, but if you require a Tier 4 visa to enter the UK and begin your degree programme, these tests will not be sufficient to obtain your Visa.

The IELTS test is most widely accepted by universities and is also accepted for Tier 4 visas to the UK- learn more.

Funding

The National College of Teaching and Leadership may offer Professional Development funding for teachers from schools in England; please see the Department for Education Website. Further information on funding for prospective UK, EU and international postgraduate students is available from the Student Funding Office.
