Applying

Apply as soon as possible as enrolment is limited and allocated on a first-come first-served basis. Applying early also means you are more likely to secure a place on your first choice of modules  as popular subjects are likely to fill up quickly.

How to apply

The application deadline for this summer has now passed. Applications for summer 2019 will open in October. Contact us to be added to our mailing list, and you'll be among the first to find out when applications are open.

To be eligible to apply for our summer school you should:

  • have a minimum grade point average (GPA) of 2.8 or equivalent

If you are not sure whether you meet our entry requirements, or what the equivalencies are for your qualifications please contact us.

Visas

If you require a visa to enter the UK you will need to apply for a Short-term Study Visa to attend the summer school — a standard visa will not be accepted. Please note, however, that you should always check the immigration requirements for your country and your passport before departing for the UK. Visit the gov.uk website for more information.

Language Centre

Our Language Centre offers pre-sessional English language courses before the start of the summer school for students who do not meet our entry requirements of 5.5 IELTS or for students who meet the entry requirements but still want to improve their English. The 10 week programme will help to:

  • prepare you with the knowledge and skills necessary to successfully study with us
  • improve your English language skills
  • develop your understanding of University systems, services and facilities

If you decide to apply for a pre-sessional English course, please inform us on your summer school application form.
