     ANNEX A

    Southampton Solent University: language entry criteria for admissions to courses

    1. This Annex states the English language entry requirements for admission to University courses.

    2. Non-EAA students must also meet the UK Border Agency’s (UKBA) English language proficiency requirements for visa purposes.

     Applicants are advised that:

    ; For degree level courses at NQF 6 and above, UKBA require CEFR B2 equivalent (IELTS 5.5) in all components (reading, listening,

    writing and speaking). As a Highly Trusted Sponsor, we are able to use our own methods of assessment to evidence language

    proficiency. This includes our own internal language test.

    ; For sub-degree courses UKBA require CEFR B1 equivalent (IELTS 4.0) in all four components, This must be evidenced via a UKBA

    Secure English Language Test (SELT), as specified in the most up to date list on the UKBA website. Tests used must be within their

    validity date (issued within 2 years of the date of the Tier 4 application). UKBA SELT information is available via:

    http://www.ukba.homeoffice.gov.uk/sitecontent/newsfragments/45-new-list-of-english-language

    ; All non-specified courses/awards below NQF 3-5 require minimum language entry at B1 in all four components e.g.:

     IELTS: 4.0 in all elements

     TOEFL: R 8 S 19 L - 13 W 17

    3. The Annex indicates the equivalent UKBA language proficiency requirements in each of the language tests stated.
