Enrty Requirements.

Entry Requirements – To gain entry into a course at ECA students will be required to demonstrate they have the required English language proficiency. Applicants who have completed a degree within the past two years in which English was the language of instruction may not be required to complete an IELTS or TOEFL test. This is assessed on an individual basis.

The table below outlines a general guide to the English language proficiency required for entry into the various award levels. Please note that some courses require higher English language proficiency than others. Please check the relevant course entry before applying.

In some circumstances, we will accept test results from other methods of the examination not listed in this table.
Applicants who fail to meet the English language requirements are encouraged to seek a conditional offer of a place until they meet the English language entry requirements of ELSIS.
