English language requirements

To study at London Met you must be able to demonstrate proficiency in the English language. Our requirements vary depending on the course – please check our English language requirements for undergraduate, postgraduate, International Foundation Programme and research courses below. If you require a Tier 4 student visa you may also need to provide a Secure English Language Test (SELT) such as Academic IELTS.

Our Pre-sessional Academic English course can help prepare you for entry on to one of our undergraduate or postgraduate degree courses. It's ideal if your level of English is just below the requirements for your chosen degree or you want to feel a bit more confident before starting your studies.
