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
  • Pearson PTE: a score of 56 (with no element lower than 51)
  • Cambridge English Test – Advanced: 169 (with no element lower than 162)

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 academic programme. Such a course is available at Bangor, and full details and an application form may be obtained here.
