The following information is for guidance only and should be used together with the University's general entrance requirements and any specific degree programme requirements.
Birmingham Foundation Academy
Students who have graduated from an Indonesian High School with a good score in the Sekolah Menengah Atas (SMA/SMU ) will need to have completed a suitable foundation programme by joining the Birmingham Foundation Academy to be considered for entry to undergraduate degree programmes.
We will consider students with grades of 7.0/10 in the High School Certificate from year 12 (SMU3), to include 7.0 in Mathematics for our Engineering and Physical Sciences pathway.
For further information see the Birmingham Foundation Academy website.
The University will consider students who have taken GCE A Level examinations and the International Baccalaureate (IB) for entrance to undergraduate programmes.
Holders of a Diploma (D1/D2), with good grades, from a recognised Indonesian institution may be considered for undergraduate study at Birmingham.
Some students who have studied in Indonesia have followed a 12 year education system. For admission onto an Undergraduate degree programme, the University of Birmingham requires all applicants to have studied for 13 years, and therefore you may need to take a foundation year before commencing your undergraduate programme.
Holders of the 4 year Sarjana (S1) or a Diploma VI (D4) from a recognised Indonesian institution will be considered for postgraduate study at Birmingham. Entry requirements will vary and range from a GPA of 2.8 upwards, depending on course requirements and the institution at which you have studied. In order to speed up the processing of your application it is advisable to include evidence of the BAN-PT accreditation of your programme with your application (- this can usually be found on your transcript or you can contact your university and ask for confirmation).
If your S1 GPA is between 2.5–3.0 you may be considered for our International Pre-Masters programme. Please see this website for further information: www.birmingham.ac.uk/pre-masters
Holders of the Magister (S2) from a recognised Indonesian institution will be considered for postgraduate and PhD study at Birmingham.
