What if I don’t have my official exam results yet?

Forecast results can be considered for conditional admission before official results are released, but you will also be asked to take an English Placement Test prior to enrolment. If the English Placement Test (EPT) result is not satisfactory, you will have to enrol in our Intensive English Program (IEP) for a semester (depending on your progress and achievements) before commencing with your normal academic programme.

Student whose official results fall short of the entry requirements must either withdraw from the programme or enrol in a programme with lower entry requirements.

Can I get exemptions?

If you have completed other courses or modules at another institution, you may be eligible to apply for exemption upon admission to The One Academy.

Your exemptions will be assessed by our academic department. Please include full information of your prior studies, and attach relevant transcripts, portfolios and other evidence of your studies. Please contact the Student Registration Office (SRA) to discuss any aspect of the application process that you are unsure about and to arrange for a visit.
