We can accept English within the Brandos Atestatas if taken at State Exam Level and passed with minimum 75% (depending on your course choice).

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.

  • Our standard entry criteria for postgraduate taught and postgraduate research courses is IELTS 6.5, with nothing lower than 5.5 in any of the four elements (listening, speaking, reading and writing).

If you don't meet our English language requirements, our Anglia Ruskin University Language Centre offers a range of courses which could help you achieve the level required for entry onto a degree course.

Our Language Centre offers the English language proficiency test (ELPT) in the UK and overseas. To find out if we are holding the ELPT in your country, check our events page or email your country manager.
