Not met the English language grades?
You need to meet a certain level of written and spoken English. This is so you can get the most out of your course at Nottingham, which will be delivered in English. You can meet our requirements by taking an English test such as IELTS, or studying a presessional English course with us.
Find out more about our English language requirements and the English tests and qualifications we accept.
Our Centre for English Language Education (CELE) offers presessional courses to help you prepare and meet the required level in English before you start your undergraduate studies.

Start your visa preparations
The student visa application process involves several important documents and preparations, including academic and financial evidence, plus a Confirmation of Acceptance for Studies (CAS) which is issued by the university when you have an unconditional offer.
It's important to plan your preparations early and follow the visa rules closely, to avoid any delays or mistakes which could cause a visa refusal. Use our 10-step application guide to help you prepare and apply.
10 steps to obtaining your student visa
Need to apply for funding or a scholarship?
In order to apply successfully for a student visa, you must provide financial evidence that you have enough money or funding to cover your first year of tuition fees and least nine months of living expenses. The most common reason for visa refusals is not having the correct financial evidence or the correct amount of funding.
Find out about our international Undergraduate Excellence Awards – there may still be time to apply.

Preparing for results day
If you are not studying A levels or the International Baccalaureate Diploma, we will not receive your exam results automatically, so you must provide them or arrange for them to be sent to us. It is your responsibility to forward official confirmation of all results included in your conditional offer to the university.
- NottinghamHub – You can upload scanned copies to our online application system, NottinghamHub. We can also accept high-quality photos as long as the document is an official transcript of your marks.
- By email – Certificates and transcripts will be accepted by email only if they are sent by a school or college, or one of our official overseas representatives. Copies should be sent to: firstname.lastname@example.org
- All results must be in English – If your documents need to be translated into English then you must send legally certified copies to us.
The deadline for providing us with all of the results is specified in your offer, which you can view in UCAS Hub.
When we have received your results we will assess your qualifications and update your offer status. In some cases we may still be able to accept students who have narrowly missed the grades stated in your offer conditions, so please wait for us to assess your results.
If your results do not qualify you for your chosen course(s) – or if you want to change your study plans – you may be able to apply for another course through Clearing.
