International Students


The programmes are open to all students meeting our minimum entrance requirements, regardless of their location. 

English language

Applicants whose first language is not English are asked to provide evidence of English language ability before admission to the University. For more information please see our Entry requirements.

Module 1 workshop

Applicants should note that they will be required to attend the compulsory Module 1 workshop, where training on the introductory materials and distance learning services will be given. This workshop is held in York, usually in mid-September, and lasts for two days. Attendance at subsequent workshops (normally there is one for each module) is recommended but is not compulsory. Dates for the workshops and exams can be found by following the link to Term dates.

Visas

Attendance at the Module 1 workshop is compulsory. Any applicant who needs a visa to travel to the UK should arrange this as soon as possible once they are in receipt of an unconditional offer. Owing to the distance learning nature of these programmes, a Tier 4 visa is not normally required: advice on applying for an appropriate visa is available from the University's immigration advice service.

Examination centres 2016-17

For Modules 1 to 4, students are required to sit a closed examination. Students may choose to take the exam in an assessment centre either in the UK or abroad. Students taking exams in non-UK centres will have to meet all costs of the local examination, including the examination fee and associated courier costs for exam papers and scripts.

Normally, students enrolling on the programme will be expected to sit their examinations at one of the above centres unless there is a compelling reason to do otherwise.  Logistical and administrative constraints mean that we do not normally expand our international examination centres beyond a quota of around 30. However, if one of the above centres is no longer required, we shall consider substituting it with a new centre in a different location.  New centres can be nominated in September each year. We will only consider setting up a new centre once a student has registered for the programme and paid their programme fee. If, for whatever reason, it does not prove possible to provide an exam at a particular centre, students must travel to an alternative centre.

Students commencing their studies with us will be asked to nominate their preferred examination centre at the Module 1 Workshop. 

Please contact the Programme Administrator for further information.
