Alternatives to IELTS now accepted for Pre-Master’s students
9 April 2019
Programmes for postgraduate students at Coventry University London International Study Centre will now benefit from changes to English language requirements from summer 2019.
Coventry University London International Study Centre is now part of the Office for Students Register of higher education, allowing for postgraduate students to be assessed for their English language skills in the centre. This means students will no longer be required to take a UKVI IELTS test in order to begin a Pre-Master’s programme at the International Study Centre.
Students beginning the Pre-Master’s programme from September 2019 will be able to apply using an equivalent test to the IELTS as their English qualification. The alternative tests accepted for English will be:
- Cambridge Business
- Cambridge Main Suite
View the equivalent scores needed in these tests to join the Pre-Master’s programme.
In accepting a range of alternatives to the IELTS assessment route, Coventry University London International Study Centre will give postgraduate students greater flexibility in assessing their English language skills for entry to the Pre-Masters’ programme.

Alumni story: a study abroad experience to remember
8 February 2019
Marzana studied at Coventry University London International Study Centre. Today, she looks back on her life in London – one of the greatest times of her life.
"I have always wanted to study abroad and the UK has always been my first choice. I can say I have made the right decision – I spent the most phenomenal eight months of my life at Coventry University London International Study Centre.
Preparing for university
I believe that learning the foundations of my course and getting used to university teaching style at the International Study Centre first is better than applying for a degree straight away.
What I liked about the Centre was the mix of international students. There are people from everywhere and the whole environment of the place is really warm.
My favourite part of my studies was the coursework. The topics of the modules which I had were very interesting and my coursework helped me learn more about them through independent research.
I also liked their strategy of teaching English, which was easy to comprehend and more informal. The module helped me expand my vocabulary.
I believe that because I got good basic knowledge of finance, economics and law in my programme, I have now chosen the same mix of subjects in my university management course too. My programme will definitely help me do well in my university studies.
Support for international students
The teachers were the reason the International Study Centre felt like home.
I would like to thank the Administration team for working so hard to make our admission process go smoothly, and for helping us complete our programme successfully. My finance teacher checked my work even after his working hours and supported me with my modules. I would personally like to thank our Welfare Officer too, as she was there for me on many occasions.
As a student at the International Study Centre, I was enthusiastic and eager to achieve. This has driven me to great success in my foundation course. International students should consider the International Study Centre because of the environment and the kind of people that are associated with it.
Thank you, Coventry University London International Study Centre. I will cherish my journey here for a lifetime."
