If English is not your first language, you will need a British Council International English Language Testing System (IELTS) overall score of 6.5, with at least 5.5 in each band. After 6 April 2015 you must take your IELTS exams at one of the test centres listed on the UKVI website.

MSc Nursing student Lu Ai Yen from Malaysia believes studying at the University of Sunderland was the best choice she’s ever made and credits the tremendously supportive staff and rich resources with inspiring her to consider continuing her studies with a PhD.
"Nursing has always been my passion and studying Nursing at the University of Sunderland has been the best choice I have ever made. I come from a small town in Malaysia and always dreamt of coming to a prestigious overseas university to further my studies. I can't believe that I'm living my dreams; studying my dream course in one of the top universities in the UK.
Not only that, I have also been blessed with wonderful lecturers who have been tremendously supportive to me throughout the course. Nursing is a challenging course, but with the guidance of my lecturers, helpful staff and the rich resources provided, not only did I overcome the barriers, my enthusiasm towards the course increases day by day. I am enjoying the course so much that I'm considering continuing my PhD here."
