entry requirements

Acceptance for study at West London College does not necessarily require, on the part of the student, any previous knowledge of the subjects to be studied. However, prospective students should have successfully completed a high school education equivalent to GCSE level and have reached a commensurate level of literacy and numeracy. Educational certificates held by international students will vary from country to country but the College Registry has considerable experience of assessing these.

Tuition is in English and so international students must therefore have reached a reasonable level of fluency. The level of English Language required for admission varies from course to course (please see below) but is never less than IELTS 5.0. Where an applicant does not have the required level, the College is able to offer English language training in advance of the main course of study.

In addition to the College requirements, those needing to apply for a student visa will need to satisfy United Kingdom Visas and Immigration and details of what they require (level B1 or B2 etc..) are explained on the SELTs page.
