Am I eligible?

The PSP is available to all full-time international students whose first language is not English. You must hold a current offer to study a degree course at RGU in order to apply.

You must also hold an IELTS Academic certificate from a registered IELTS test centre as evidence of your current English level. If you require a Tier 4 visa to study with us in the UK you must sit an IELTS for UKVI test. We cannot unfortunately accept non-consortium IELTS test results if you require a CAS from us to apply for visa.

Please note: if you currently hold a conditional offer there is no automatic right to progression. Whilst there is a very high likelihood of success, we cannot guarantee all students will progress on to their chosen course.
