English language requirements

We would typically require an IELTS score of 7.0 (including 6.5 in each component). If you need a visa to study in the UK, then we can only accept the IELTS test from a UKVI approved centre and not any other English language tests due to the visa requirements set by the UK Government. You must have obtained these scores within two years before application to NCH.


EU/EEA students who have taken higher level English as part of their secondary school or university examinations, or who have been educated entirely in English for a minimum of three years before application, may be exempt from these requirements.
