Graduate Students with English as a second language

If English is not your first language, we do expect you to be able to demonstrate a high level of proficiency. Our required IELTS language qualification score is 7.0:

  • Cambridge Certificate in Proficiency in English: grades A and B accepted
  • Cambridge Certificate of Advanced English: grade A only accepted
  • Pearson (PTE) 67

Applications with an IELTS score of 6.5 will be considered if the candidate's application is otherwise impressive. In these cases attendance at the 4-week pre-sessional English Language Training course at York is required. Such admissions have to be approved by the Chair of the Graduate School Board.
