English Language Requirements

IELTS band : 6

IMPORTANT NOTE: Per 6 April 2015 only the English language tests from IELTS and Trinity College London are accepted for Tier 4 Visa applications to the United Kingdom. Other tests (including TOEFL, TOEIC, Pearson, City & Guilds) are no longer accepted for Tier 4 visa applications to the United Kingdom. The university might still accept these tests to admit you to the university, but if you require a Tier 4 visa to enter the UK and begin your degree programme, these tests will not be sufficient to obtain your Visa. Since the Trinity College London language tests must be taken in one of their exam centres in the UK, IELTS is now the only language test accepted for Tier 4 visas to the UK that can be taken worldwide.

The IELTS test is most widely accepted by universities and is also accepted for Tier 4 visas to the UK- learn more.

To study at this university, you have to speak English. We advise you to

take an IELTS test.

More Information



Civil engineering is one of the major international construction professions and provides students with opportunities to work for a wide range of employers and participate in many different types of work. This accredited programme, which is oriented towards a career as an incorporated engineer, has a stronger focus on applied civil engineering technology and design, and includes a higher proportion of group and individual project work than our BEng Hons programmes. The programme also develops technical, engineering and managerial skills, as on the BEng Hons programmes, but with assessment structures that recognise the particular focus of the programme.

The programme includes lectures and studio work, on an individual and group basis, together with laboratory investigations and a number of site visits. These offer students an insight into the work and fascinating challenges they will meet after graduation. Our Professor in the department has been sponsored by the Rochester Bridge Trust (one of the oldest organisations in providing and maintaining river crossings in the UK).

The aims of the programme are:

  • To present a range of core and supporting studies that will form a sound basis for your development as an incorporated engineer
  • To equip students with an awareness of engineering in the wider economic and social context
  • To offer a challenging programme that is current, relevant and informed by staff professional experience and consultancy.
