English language

To be considered for a Saïd Foundation scholarship candidates need to meet our English language requirement. This is an IELTS score of at least 6.0 overall with a minimum of 6.0 in each band or equivalent score in an alternative English language test accepted by your UK university. However, some universities have higher English language requirements and it is your responsibility to check the eligibility of your English test results with your chosen university. The Foundation cannot do this for you or give you advice on partner universities’ English language requirements.

Please note that only English language certificates dated after 1st October 2020 will be accepted. If your certificate was issued before this date then you will be required to take another test in order to be considered for a scholarship.

If you have already taken an English language test then you should upload a copy of your test certificate to your application before you submit. If you have not taken a test prior to applying for a scholarship, you will need to register for a test and provide details of the test booking in your application prior to submitting.

If you are selected for an interview you will be asked to provide evidence that you have met the English language requirements of both the Saïd Foundation and your chosen university.
