Find out more about our English Language requirements.

We may be able to consider other English language qualifications, call or email our Admissions team and they will be happy to help. Try to book your language tests as early in the year as you can, just in case re-sits are needed.

Additional Entry requirements

If you live outside of the UK, you’ll need a certificate of criminal record from the relevant national police authority in the country you’re currently living in. Speak with your national police authority to get this done. This can be submitted after your UCAS application.

We will also need scanned copies of all transcripts and certificates listed on your UCAS application. If these are not in English, we’ll need a verified translation as well as the originals. Don’t worry about this just yet, you can send all of these to our Admissions team after you’ve submitted your UCAS application.

In countries where there is a recognised National Chiropractic Association and/or statutory regulatory requirements, applicants to our Chiropractic Programmes are responsible for ensuring that, if they wish to practice in their home country, they fulfil all requirements imposed by the National Association.

Find more information about our admissions policies and procedures, including our Admissions Complaints and Appeals Policy on our latest policies page.
