A proof of upper-intermediate level must be included in the application; this should take the form of one of the recognised international qualifications (minimum CEFR B2, Cambridge English First (FCE), PTE Level 3, IELTS 5-6.5 or TOEFL > 72). Applicants from native English speaking countries can apply without the need for proof of level (for a full list of countries see the guide for applicants). An official degree (including postgraduate) conducted in English as the only language will be also accepted as a proof of level.
