If you are an international student whose first language is not English, and you wish to study at Bradford College, you will have access to additional English provision in the English Language Centre for which there may be a small charge. Your classes will prepare you for the IELTS examinations. We also provide specialist tutorials and English support specifically aimed at A level study.
The subjects we offer are graded for international students by level of difficulty for an 'English as a Second Language' student. Level A is the most accessible because it is largely number-based. Level C is the most difficult because these courses are highly dependent upon knowledge of the English language and culture. Each Level has different entry requirements.
Information and Communication (ICT)
Mathematics & Further Mathematics
English Language & Literature (combined course)
International students whose medium of instruction is English, will be required to demonstrate equivalent qualifications to those required for home students.
International students whose medium of instruction is NOT English must have achieved IELTS scores as listed below.
For AS/A2 levels where the language content is relatively low, for example Mathematics, Information Communication Technology, Physics: minimum IELTS score 5.0
For AS/A2 levels with an average language content, for example Business: minimum IELTS score 5.5
For AS/A2 levels with a high language content, for example English Literature: minimum IELTS score 6.5.
If you successfully complete the 'Study Skills for Advanced Levels' course at Bradford College, the IELTS entry requirement is reduced by 0.5.
This is determined by the individual Examining Board and usually takes the form of external, terminal examinations and some coursework.
