6. Previous study in the UK (for overseas (non-EU) applicants).

The Home Office has introduced a limit to the time that international students on a Tier 4 Student Visa can spend studying at degree level. There will be a general limit of 5 years on study time but this will not apply to those studying for Master’s degrees following successful completion of an undergraduate degree where the undergraduate course duration was 4 or 5 years. In these cases the limit will be set at 6 years. We also have to ensure that any study you are proposing to undertake represents academic progression from any previous studies in the UK.


If yes, please list below any previous study (regardless of the level i.e. English language courses) undertaken in the UK. We will also require copies of all visas held during those periods of study.

7. English language.

All international students applying for a course at the University of Northampton must meet the minimum English language requirements, however, if you do not meet these requirements we offer pre-sessional academic English language courses and an international foundation programme.

Applicants who answer ‘Yes’ will not be automatically excluded from the application process, and theirapplication will be considered on its merits before the relevance of their criminal conviction is taken into account.

If you are convicted of a relevant criminal offence after you have applied, you must tell us. Do not send details of the offence; simply tell us that you have a relevant criminal conviction.
