Our entry requirements vary from course to course, and depend on whether you are applying to a Foundation Year, Undergraduate Degree, Postgraduate Programme or a Professional programme.
Each course sets its own entrance requirements, and you will usually be required to attain required grades, which are listed under the course details. Admissions tutors will be happy to advise you on international entry requirements for their courses.
Applicants should provide attested copies of their qualifications and translations (from approved translator) of each document that is not in English.
- For undergraduate courses, you will need a school qualification. We accept a wide variety of international qualifications.
- For postgraduate courses, you will need a good degree from a UK or international university.
Accreditation of Prior Learning (APL)
This is a process by which the College gives credit for learning achieved by an individual before entry to a programme of study:
- Previously assessed and certificated : this learning may have been previously assessed and certificated by an education provider, in which case it is known as 'prior certificated learning'
- Acquired outside formal systems : it may also have been acquired outside formal education and training systems (for example, through work experience) and is therefore known as 'prior experiential learning'
- Claiming for APL : if you feel that you have sufficient qualifications and/or experience to give you partial exemption from a programme of study at CLC you are welcome to make a claim for APL : please note, however, that you must first make a separate application for admission via the Admissions Office.
English Proficiency Requirement
For all courses at the College you must provide an English Language proficiency. HND programmes require CEFR Level B1 and all postgraduate require CEFR Level C1. The qualifications tables list the English language qualifications currently accepted by the UKBA and City of London College, as well as the minimum grade usually required. However, some courses may have higher English language entry requirements. If you are unsure about the requirements for your course, contact the Registry Office for guidance. In all cases, your English language certificate should normally have been obtained within the last two years prior to the application.
Countries exempt from English Language testing:
If you are a national of one of the following countries, we will not ask you to provide evidence of an English language test.
Nationals from Countries not stated above are required to take one of the above listed tests and acheive the relevant highlighted score. In addition to the above test, candidates may also be required to take the English Language or an Entrance test followed by web based interview.
