School of Law

English language requirements

Our requirements vary from course to course, or whether you’re applying for an undergraduate or postgraduate degree.

We accept a wide range of Standard English Language tests (SELTs), and in some cases, school or university qualifications from your home country, as proof of your language competency. A high standard and very good command of English is essential for all students studying courses at the School of Law.

English language requirements are listed on the relevant course information pages within our website. 

English language courses at Manchester

If you don’t quite reach our language requirements for master's courses, we might be able to offer you a pre-sessional language course at the University Language Centre.

The courses are designed to help you improve your academic English skills and to prepare you for study on your degree programme. All our English courses include academic reading, writing, speaking and listening. The length of the course is dictated by how much you need to improve your language scores in the test you have taken.

If this is an option for you, talk to our admissions team.
