Language Requirements

If your native language is not English, you must provide satisfactory evidence that you have an adequate knowledge and understanding of written and spoken English. The following scores are acceptable:

  • IELTS: an overall score of 6.0 with no individual score of less than 5.5
  • TOEFL: 560 with a TWE (written score) of 4
  • Computer-based TOEFL: 220
  • The minimum requirement for IBT (Internet-based TOEFL) is 80 with no element below 16

Students who have undertaken 2 years of education entirely through the medium of English directly prior to entry to Bangor University, will not be required to submit an English Language test certificate. 


It may be necessary for applicants falling short of this minimum standard to attend an intensive English language course before registering for the programme. Bangor University also reserves the right to require any successful applicant to undertake additional language training during the programme should the circumstances so require.
