IMPORTANT NOTE: Per 6 April 2015 only the English language tests from IELTS and Trinity College London are accepted for Tier 4 Visa applications to the United Kingdom. Other tests (including TOEFL, TOEIC, Pearson, City & Guilds) 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. Since the Trinity College London language tests must be taken in one of their exam centres in the UK, IELTS is now the only language test accepted for Tier 4 visas to the UK that can be taken worldwide.

Although our roots stretch back to the mid-19th century, we’re far more concerned with what we can do today to help our distance learning students build a more prosperous future. Since our first bricks and mortar institution opened its doors 156 years ago, we’ve witnessed lots of changes, although our commitment to advancing the knowledge and education of students has never wavered.
