English language requirements

To be considered for a place at De Montfort University International College (DMUIC) on the International Incorporated Bachelors (IIB), Pre-Top Up (PTU) or the International Incorporated Masters (IIM), you need to meet our standard of English Language requirements.  Our courses require an IELTS of 5.5 or equivalent, with a minimum of 5.5 in every component.

However, if you do not meet these English Language requirements, we can offer you a pre-sessional English course to be studied immediately before you enter the first/second stage of your chosen programme.

Pre-sessional English courses

  • If you have an IELTS 5.5 (with any component below 5.5), you will be offered a six week pre-sessional English course immediately preceding your entry to the programme.
  • If you have IELTS 5.0 (with no component below 4.5), you will be offered a six week pre-sessional English course immediately preceding your entry to the programme.
  •  If you have IELTS 4.5 (with no component below 4.0), you will be offered a twelve week pre-Sessional English course immediately preceding your entry to the programme.
