English Requirements

All students whose first language is not English will need to demonstrate that they have a level of English that is appropriate for the courses they intend to study at MPW.

Our normal entrance requirement is an IELTS (or equivalent) score of 5.5 – 6.5, depending on the course you wish to follow. We accept TOEFL (paper test, computer test, internet-based test) and PTE qualifications as well as IGCSE at C or above. The level that we require will be discussed at the application or interview stage. Students who do not have a recognised English language qualification will sit our own test. However, we may then ask you to sit an approved English language test in addition to our own test before an offer of a place can be made.

As a rough guide, the approximate equivalent levels of the approved tests are:





5.5-6.5 500-575 200-230 70-90 42-60

We may also require you to take additional English as a Foreign Language (EFL) lessons at MPW alongside your A level programme until you reach our required levels.

For students who are applying for a General visa (those who will be over-18 at the start of their courses), an approved English test is a UKVI visa requirement.
