Some of our courses may have extra requirements, such as portfolios for art and design courses. These are outlined in our course pages.
If you don't meet academic requirements for undergraduate and postgraduate taught courses then Cambridge Ruskin International College (CRIC) can help. CRIC provides foundation and pre-Masters courses which will help you meet the requirements for our degrees.
English language requirements
If English is not your first language you'll need to be able to show you have the required level of English language. This is so we can ensure you'll be able to follow your course.
Please note that any student requiring a SELT for pre-sessional or study below degree level must ensure that they take their IELTS at an approved test centre.
If you don't meet our English language requirements, our Language Services Unit (LSU) offers a range of courses which could help you achieve the level required for entry onto a degree course. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
At LSU we also provide our own English language proficiency test (ELPT); we offer this test both in the UK and overseas. To find out if we are planning to hold an ELPT in your country, please see events in your country or contact our country managers.
Changes to Entry Clearance for students coming from Pakistan
The UK Government has changed the way that it issues permission for people to come to the UK from abroad for more than six months.
The current system makes it so that when students apply in their home country for permission to come to the UK, they receive an ‘entry clearance’ sticker in their passport; this usually gives them permission to enter the UK and then stay in the UK for the length of their course (plus a short time afterwards). The new system will be more complicated.
When a student makes their immigration application abroad, they will have to say what town they're going to stay in when they first arrive in the UK. They will be given a short-term entry clearance in their passport that gives them 30 days in which to travel to the UK and then go to a Post Office near the town identified, to collect a ‘Biometric Immigration Document’ (‘BID’) that will showntheir permission to be in the UK for the rest of their course (plus a short amount of time afterwards).
You may get a penalty or your leave can be cancelled if you don’t pick up your BID within 10 days of your arrival in the UK.
The new Entry Clearance system currently applies only to students coming from Pakistan.
Further information about the changes in Entry Clearance can be found at Gov.uk website.
