English Language Requirements

Choosing to study in the UK will dramatically improve your English Language skills. In order to be admitted to the University of Suffolk, students are expected to be able to communicate fully in English in order to succeed on the course. If you are an international student requiring a Tier 4 visa to study in the UK, English Language testing forms part of your visa requirements.

Applicants whose first language is not English will be expected to undertake an English Language Test unless otherwise stated on your country page. Please note that Tier 4 applicants are required to sit a Secure English Language Test (SELT). Non-EU applicants are required to submit SELT scores before a Confirmation of Acceptance for Studies (CAS) can be issued.
