International Students

If you are a British citizen, have ‘right of abode’ in the UK, or a national of the European Economic Area (EEA) or Switzerland, you can apply to study at Norland in the normal way through UCAS. As part of the application process you will need to verify the equivalence of your qualifications with UK NARIC (the UK National Recognition Information Centre).

If you are not a British citizen, do not have ‘right of abode’ in the UK, or are a non-European Economic Area (EEA) or non-Swiss national, unfortunately you cannot currently apply to study at Norland. Norland does not hold a Tier 4 sponsor licence, which is required to sponsor international students. Please email if you would like us to contact you if this situation changes.

English Language Competence

Applicants must be able to demonstrate that they have sufficient English language competence to complete their programme of study.  It is expected that applicants with English as an additional language will undertake IELTS Academic (International English Language Testing System) and achieve an overall band of 6.0 with no less than 6 in each component skill. See the IELTS website for more information.
