English language requirements

All teaching at the University of Oxford is carried out in English and tutors must be convinced that you have sufficient fluency in written and spoken English to cope with your course from the start. Therefore, all non-native English-speaking applicants (other than those who have been educated in the medium of English language during their two most recent years of study) must satisfy the University requirements. Please refer to the University of Oxford website for guidance for international students.  

If this is not achieved at the time of application it will form part of any conditional offer, and must be met by August of the year of entry. In the case of deferred entry this must be met by August of the year of examination publication.
