Foundation Year in Politics and International Relations: Entry Requirements
Documents and entry requirements needed are:
- Scanned copy of passport and visa (if applicable)
- Personal statement
- Proof of address
- Higher Secondary School Certificate
- Higher Secondary documents
- 5 GCSEs (including English) at grade A-C or equivalent and a pass in GCSE Maths or equivalent
If English is not your first language or you have not previously studied in English, our usual requirement is:
IELTS 5.5, or TOEFL 46/59 (internet-based test) or 453/497 (paper-based test), Cambridge Advanced Certificate level B2, GCSE/IGCSE English grade C or above, or international equivalent.
These English language requirements are not necessary if for two of the last three years students have attended an institution where English is the language of instruction. In case language requirements are not met immediately (i.e. IELTS 5), NCIUL reserves the right to provide or request the student to participate to an intensive full time course before the beginning of the first term.
We may welcome also applicants without traditional entry qualifications as we base decisions on our own assessment of knowledge and previous work experience.
