The University’s normal entry criteria apply to all international students. For details of country-specific entry requirements please visit your home country page on our website.
English language requirements for any degree
The University has formal requirements for all applicants. These are normally English Language qualifications which we recognise as meeting our entry criteria. Requirements may vary between programmes, and you are advised to check these carefully when going through course listings.
The following table sets out the main qualifications we recognise and the levels that are normally required for admission. It is intended as general guidance only - the offer of a place, if it includes an English Language condition, will specify the level of English that you are required to meet.
The University of Huddersfield is pleased to accept a Pass in all four elements at the Proficiency Level of the Ascentis Anglia ESOL Language qualification as meeting the University’s English Language requirements for students from the EU.
Must have completed the Diploma with English at Higher Level
Applicants from any of the following Majority English Speaking Countries (MESCs) will normally be considered to have met our English requirements:
Antigua and Barbuda

Please note that we will not normally waive the English Language requirement for speakers of other languages who have completed a programme of study taught in English in their home countries.
Meet an official representative for your country
The University works closely with education consulting companies that form a network of official representatives around the world. We strongly recommend that you use a representative to apply to the University as they will be able to help with you application, but also can offer help with organising financial documentation, visas (where appropriate), accommodation and much more. To get a complete list of companies that we work with in your country, please contact the International Officer listed on our site for your country, or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
