UCL / KINGS - how strict are they with the language requirement ?


2001

Hi everyone,

I hold a conditional offer both from KINGS and UCL.
At UCL the offer is subject to the condition of 109 iBT(TOEFL).
At KINGS the offer is subject to the condition of 100 iBT (TOEFL).

Last saturday I took the iBT TOEFL and had a very bad feeling.
If I don't achieve the necessary score, there is the option of a pre-sessional course, in which one has to take an exam at the end.

I sounds very risky for me to go for the pre-sessional course and then mabe not be able to pass it -> I would be force to go home and couldn't start with a LLM.

Any ideas how strict these universities are with their english requirements? Does someone have an idea what percentage of students pass the pre-sessional tests?

Thanks for the help !

hey! From whatever I’ve heard from the universities they’re pretty strict with the score you achieve especially English language. They’re not even open to accept a score 0.5 less than your required score. I’d suggest take the Duolingo as well if you’re worried of your score. UCL LLM is accepting Duolingo this year.

Hi

You have two options. As for UCL you can consider a pre-sessional course or an international pre-master's course. Based on some reviews, the latter course is really intensive and helpful for preparing for higher education in the UK. Ps: International pre-master's course is accepted as proof of English proficiency according to their website.
