First language not English?

For all applicants whose first language is not English, we require you to take the IELTS examination. Information about this can be obtained from the British Council. The examination is taken under the Council’s supervision.

Unfortunately we are unable to process your application until you have obtained a score of 7.0 in the examination, with no less than 6.5 in any particular category.

Students outside the EU

Please note that Oak Hill does not have a Tier 4 licence and therefore we cannot currently accept students from outside the EU. We advise you to see the UK Visa and Immigration website for up-to-date information about student visas.
