Entry requirements

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. 

Please note: If you have taken exams which are from another country's national education system (eg SAT and AP exams from the USA) you should consult the country specific section for that country for qualification equivalence information. If you are unsure about the acceptability of your qualifications for entry to Birmingham please contact us for further details.

Foundation Pathways

Applicants who possess high school leaving qualifications equivalent to UK A Levels will not normally be considered eligible for one of our Foundation Pathways. However if you choose to take a Foundation Pathway as an adjustment year, you would be required to have at least an ABB profile, to include Mathematics for the Engineering and Physical Sciences pathway or to include Biology for our MLGS pathway, that progresses to a Biology focused degree.

If you have achieved English Language at grade C, you will not be required to take an additional English proficiency test (for the 4-year programme).

For further information see the Birmingham International Academy website.


The University will consider students who have taken GCE A Level examinations, the International Baccalaureate (IB), the Uganda Advanced Certificate of Education (UACE), Cambridge Overseas Higher School Certificate, East African Advanced Certificate of Education or a suitable foundation programme, such as one of our Foundation Pathways, for entrance to undergraduate programmes.


Students who hold a Bachelor degree from a recognised institution will be considered for Postgraduate Diplomas and Masters degrees. Most Masters programmes will require a second class upper (2.1) or GPA of 3.5/5.0

Students who have completed a Masters degree from a recognised institution will be considered for PhD study.

English Language

English language at grade C or above in UACE or NEB SSLE is sufficient to meet the standard English language requirements.
