GPA of 3.0

English language: B2, please note the differences between:

  • Standard Visitor (students coming for one semester)
    Standard Visitors only planning to take courses within the subject area of their Erasmus exchange agreement and any other 1st / 2nd year level courses do not need to provide evidence of their English level. Though the expectation is that nominated students will have B2 Level English.
    You need to provide an English certificate C1 if you want to take 3rd/4th year level courses outside of the subject area of the Erasmus agreement (Law), or if a visa is required to study in the UK.

  • Student Route Visa (students coming for the full academic year)

    If you are coming into the UK on a Student Route visa then as part of the immigration process you will need to provide evidence of English level that meets the Edinburgh minimum entry requirements. You will need to provide a certificate from one of the following exams: IELTS, TOEFL iBT, Cambridge CAE/CPE or Trinity ISE which meets our minimum entry scores listed here. The English language certificate must be no more than two years old at the start date of your studies in Edinburgh.

Students who are of a nationality outside of Europe will be required to provide a proof of an official English Language certificate.
