Entry Requirements for International Students


We accept a wide range of international qualifications.

These are assessed individually for their content and level and against relevant guidelines such as the British Council and the National Academic Recognition Information Centre for the United Kingdom (NARIC UK).

The minimum required to be considered for entry to our undergraduate programmes is the equivalent of three A-levels at CCC. However, some programmes will require higher grades and particular subjects.

Please refer to the specific entry requirements for your chosen programme of study as outlined in the online prospectus.

Competence in written and spoken English is a General Entrance Requirement for entry to all courses, whereas competence in mathematics is not.

Some courses however will require specific grades for mathematics.

You should refer to the specific entry requirements for your chosen course as outlined in the online prospectus.

English Language Requirements

Usually the minimum English language entry requirement is IELTS (academic) of 6.0 (with no band score of less than 5.5).

Some of our courses ask for a higher score.

If you do not meet the English language requirement we will give you a conditional offer subject to you meeting the requirement before the commencement of the course.

We accept a wide range of alternative English language examinations and tests so please check the list of other accepted tests.

Information for your country

Depending on where you are applying from, we may ask for other information in addition to your qualifications and English language fluency.

Please check your country's information for specific requirements.
