IMPORTANT INFORMATION - These courses are only open to non-native speakers who come to the university as Visiting or Exchange students or on an ERASMUS Programme (i.e., they are not open to international students enrolled on a full-time degree programme). Applicants must have the IELTS proficiency level stated in the 'pre-requisite' section of the course description (or equivalent) in order to enrol (click here for further information on IELTS).  

It is essential that you read the Frequently Asked Questions page for Erasmus/International students, as well as the instructions on the back of the enrolment form, which you will be able to download from the How to Apply section.

If you do not have proof of the language proficiency required, you will be asked to take an online proficiency test run. The details of the test will be advertised here.

  1. Apply for both ULEN10062 and ULEN20062 (you may apply for ULEN10061 and then ULEN20062)
