Foundation Pathways

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 International 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 (D3/D4), 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) 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. 

Holders of the Magister (S2) from a recognised Indonesian institution will be considered for postgraduate study at Birmingham.
