Admission requirements 

To be considered for a place at International College Dundee on either the International Incorporated Bachelor's (IIB) or the International Incorporated Master's (IIM) programmes, you need to meet our standard of English language requirements. Both courses require an IELTS of 5.5 or equivalent, with a minimum of 5.5 in every component.

However, if you do not meet these English Language requirements, we offer you a pre-sessional English course to be studied immediately before you enter the first stage of your chosen IIB or IIM programme.

Pre-sessional English courses 

  • If you have an IELTS of 5.5 (with any component below 5.5), you will be offered a 6-week pre-sessional English course immediately preceding your entry to the programme.
  • If you have an IELTS of 5.0 (with no component below 4.5), you will be offered a 6-week pre-sessional English course immediately preceding your entry to the programme.
  • If you have an IELTS of 4.5 (with no component below 4.0), you will be offered a 12-week pre-sessional English course immediately preceding your entry to the programme.
