Entry requirements

Every course has its own entry requirements, and applicants should look at the recommendations offered by each faculty and course. There are some overall entry requirements for applicants:


Students will normally need to have A-levels, the International Baccalaureate, a recognised foundation programme or equivalent qualifications from across the world. Students who do not meet these qualifications can undertake one of the foundation courses offered by the university before proceeding to an undergraduate course.


Students will normally need an honour's degree, a postgraduate diploma or an equivalent qualification from across the world. Students have the option of enrolling for a pre-master's course that will best prepare them for meeting the requirements for postgraduate study. Completing and passing a pre-master's course, with the requisite marks, provides a guaranteed pathway to a master's course.

English Language Requirements

Applicants who do not have English as a first language will need to demonstrate English language aptitude. These vary according to course, but most undergraduate courses will require an IELTS score of 6.0, with 6.0 in reading and writing and 5.5 in listening and speaking. For postgraduate courses, applicants need a score of 6.0 – 7.0, with 6.0 in reading and writing and 5.5 in listening and speaking. Alternative qualifications to the IELTS are also accepted.
