We work in partnership with the University’s English Language Centre (ELC) to deliver pre-sessional English (PSE) programmes, which means that we have other options for you if you don’t meet the above entry criteria.

Pre-sessional English Language Entry Requirements

Please note that, where appropriate, UPIC will exempt the need for IELTS/PTE from students who have taken local examinations in English, such as WAEC, HKDSE and SPM.
