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 the 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. 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), or a suitable foundation programme, such as one of our Foundation Pathways, for entrance to undergraduate programmes.

Students holding the Cambridge Higher School Certificate (HSC) or ZIMSEC A Levels will be considered for entrance to undergraduate programmes.


Students who hold a good Bachelor Honours degree will be considered for Postgraduate Diplomas and Masters degrees.   

English Language

English language at grade C or above in the Certificate of Secondary Education (CSE) and Zimbabwe General Certificate of Education at Ordinary Level is sufficient to meet the standard English language requirements.
