English language requirements
Before being offered a place on a course, Northbrook would also need evidence of an IELTS examination (International English Language Testing System), which has become recognised as the standard test for students wishing to enter college/university or demonstrate their level of competence for employment.
Higher Education Courses
Applicants whose first language is not English are required to meet the individual entry requirements of their chosen course. Applicants without the appropriate level of English language will be required to undertake an IELTS qualification before enrolment, with a score of at least 6.0 overall and no less than 6.0 in the writing sub skill and 5.5 in all other sub skills.
Further Education Courses
Applicants whose first language is not English are required to meet the individual entry requirements of their chosen course. Level 2 applicants without the appropriate level of English language will be required to undertake an IELTS qualification before enrolment, with a score of at least 5.5 overall and no less than 5.5 in the Reading and Writing sections (for Level 2 courses or below). For Level 3 or higher level Further Education courses, applicants will require an IELTS score of at least 6.0 overall and no less than 6.0 in the Reading and Writing sections. Alternative qualifications such as ESOL Trinity qualifications or Cambridge at the appropriate level can be accepted as an alternative to IELTS.
These may be subject to change should the UK Border Agency amend their English Language regulations.
