Many colleges and universities in the UK, USA and Canada offer conditional admission to international students. Conditional admission is perfect for international students who are academically qualified but need to improve their English skills before they begin their degree programmes.
In New Zealand and Australia, LSI works with all the local Universities, Polytechnics and Tertiary institutions. If you would like to go on to study at these institutions, we will assist you with your appointments to see the International Admissions Staff
Students apply to a university or college and, if they meet the academic requirements, they are issued with a conditional letter of admission. This letter states which additional requirements are needed before the student can begin their programme. These additional
requirements focus on meeting the English language requirements of the university or college. LSI’s Academic English programme and University Pathway Service help you meet those requirements.
Students at LSI schools in the UK, USA and Canada may receive conditional letters of admission for their chosen university or college which ensure them places on degree courses subject to completion of an LSI programme. Some of LSI’s partner universities in the USA and Canada accept LSI’s own levels as proof of English language ability; other institutions may require either IELTS or TOEFL iBT scores.
LSI can arrange a conditional letter of admission to your chosen university or college for you before you arrive. Once you begin your course at LSI, our academic team prepare you to meet the additional language requirements for your course and take you step by step through the application process.
