CHECK ACADEMIC ENTRY REQUIREMENTS

Entry requirements for individual courses can vary widely. If you are currently studying towards non-UK qualifications or hold a non-UK qualification you must obtain a suitable equivalent for entry onto our courses at Swansea University. 

Take a look at our Courses and Entry Requirements page for more information.

CHECK ENGLISH LANGUAGE REQUIREMENTS

All students applying to Swansea University need to demonstrate they have a sufficient level of language ability to study their chosen course.  English Language requirements are shown on each course page, so we encourage you to check these first before applying.

We have a range of guidance on our English Language Requirements pages, including requirements for students from Majority English Speaking Countries and Approved Tests.

While in most cases there are a number of ways students can demonstrate their English skills, some international students on a Student Visa require a specific test called an IELTS for UKVI.
