English Language Requirements

  • The minimum English language qualifications that QMU will accept is IELTS 6.0 with a minimum of 5.5 in each language skill. Please note that these tests are only valid for 2 years.
  • The university also accepts English Language qualifications from Pearsons, but can no longer accept TOEFL qualifications. 
  • Free English language support is offered to all international students at QMU in the form of individual drop-in tutorials, run by the Effective Learning Service, based in the Learning Resource Centre; the service also runs informal study skills workshops in the Effective Learning Centre.
  • For applicants looking for additional English practice and study skills training prior to commencing their main course of study, the Effective Learning Service runs 4 and 12-week Pre-Sessional English programmes. These programmes can also be taken by students who fall just short of meeting the English language requirements, as a means of reaching the desired level of English before the start of their main programme.
  • Please refer to the university website for further details about English language requirements.

Accommodation for International Students

  • While not guaranteed, it is highly likely that international students will be able to secure a place in student residences if they apply in plenty of time.
