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 the Arbitur from Germany or 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 the foundation. However, if you choose to take the BFA as an adjustment year, you would be required to have at least ABB profile, to include Mathematics for the Engineering and Physical Sciences pathway.

For further information see the Foundation Pathways website.


The University will consider students who have taken A Level examinations and the International Baccalaureate (IB) for entrance to undergraduate programmes. Students from Brunei will usually undertake Brunei/Cambridge GCE A level examinations or Brunei Darussalam Technical and Vocational Educational Council (BDTVEC). Both qualifications allow students to apply for undergraduate degree courses.


Holders of a good bachelor degree with honours (4 to 6 years) from a recognised university with a upper second class grade or higher will be considered for entry to taught postgraduate programmes.

Holders of a good Masters degree from a recognised university will be considered for entry to postgraduate research programmes.

English Language

You may be required to provide evidence of your English ability. Please view the entry requirements for specific programme requirements.
