The UK has a well-deserved global reputation for providing high quality and reputable higher education. There are 157 institutions in the UK that are permitted to award degrees. All these institutions have degree awarding powers recognised by the UK authorities (UK and Scottish Parliament, Welsh and Northern Ireland Assemblies).
You do not require English Language qualifications to study a Diploma just a good standard of written English. Successful Diploma students will be accepted onto an NDA Bachelor’s Degree without IELTS.
Degree courses are taught in English, so international students will require a good standard of written English to study. If English is not your first language an IELTS average 6.5 or TOEFL score of 550 or equivalent is usually required. However, all students are considered on an individual basis and their individual ability with written English is taken into account.
