International students

We are happy to consider all international applications. If you are an international student, you may find it useful to visit our international pages for details of entry requirements from your home country.

A NATO SLP 3333 is acceptable as proof of the required English proficiency for those whose first language is not English.

If you are unsure whether you qualify for the course based on your home staff college achievements, please contact the course director. We recognise that your military education might have differed from the British model. We have vast experience with international staff colleges and some of our academics have been educated at both British and international staff colleges, so are well equipped to advise you.

There are no residential requirements and your continuous presence in London is not required. However, we do encourage attendance at guest seminars and face-to-face tutorials in addition to other (online) ways of keeping contact with your supervisor.

Selection process

Candidates apply online, sending in their supporting documents, and will be assessed on this basis by the Programme Director.  The Programme Director or Admissions Assistant will be happy to answer any enquiries.
