                    English Language Requirements

                    You only need to take one of these language tests:

                    • Minimum required score:

                      92

                      The TOEFL iBT ® measures your English-language abilities in an academic setting. The test has four sections (reading, listening, speaking, and writing), each with a score range of 0-30, for a total score range of 0-120. Read more about TOEFL iBT ®.

                    • Minimum required score:

                      6.5

                      The IELTS – or the International English Language Test System – tests your English-language abilities (writing, listening, speaking, and reading) on a scale of 1.00–9.00. The minimum IELTS score requirement refers to which Overall Band Score you received, which is your combined average score. Read more about IELTS.

                      StudyPortals Tip: The UK government has confirmed new English-language testing requirements for visa and immigration purposes. Learn more

                    • Minimum required score (Grade B2):

                      176

                      C1 Advanced is a Cambridge English Qualification. It reports on the Cambridge English Scale between 142 and 210. You will receive a separate score for each of the four skills (reading, writing, listening and speaking) and for Use of English. These five scores are averaged to give you an overall result for the exam. Universities and colleges may ask you to achieve a specific score, either overall or for a particular skill.

                      Note: degree programmes and applications may require a more specific minimum score for admission.

                    Academic Requirements

                    You need the following GPA score:

                    Applicants for graduate programs must have the equivalent of a bachelor’s degree with a minimum GPA equivalent to Upper Second Class on the UK Honour scale. Admitted applicants typically have an undergraduate GPA of or better on the UK Honour scale. No exam grade should be lower than 4.5 (European grade scale) or D (American grade scale).

                    Your GPA (Grade Point Average) is calculated using the grades that you received in each course, and is determined by the points assigned to each grade (e.g. for the US grading scale from A-F).

                    Entry requirements

                    A bachelor degree with a 2:1 (hons) in electronic/electrical engineering or a related subject.

                    We will consider applicants with a 2.2 in a relevant specialist field such as mechatronics, robotics, automation, control systems or combined electronic and mechanical engineering.

                    All applicants will need to have GCSE English Language at grade C or above, or an appropriate English language qualification.

                    We accept a range of international equivalent qualifications.
