* holders of other awards, including those from non-UK universities will be considered on the equivalence of their qualifications
* those applicants for whom English is not a first language to demonstrate a certificated level of proficiency of at least IELTS 6.5 or equivalent
* candidates who do not possess any of these entry criteria, but can demonstrate appropriate relevant experience in a post of management or professional responsibility may be admitted if, in the opinion of the Admissions Tutor, they are capable of profiting from and contributing to the pathway.

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.
