University Entry Requirements

Some universities will also require other qualifications and evidence of study in order to offer you a place. These will be detailed in the entry requirements for the particular course at the university you wish to apply for.

  • Universities will usually require IELTS or PTEs from entry, if applicable (see above).
  • If you already hold qualifications that were studied outside the UK, your university may wish to see a Statement of Comparability to check that the qualifications you have meet their entry requirements. These can be obtained by contacting UK ENIC (formerly known as UK NARIC).
  • If you do not already hold the required qualifications, we provide a range of UK qualifications, which can be studied online from outside the UK, to provide you with the qualifications you need to fulfil the university entry requirements. These are: IGCSEs, Functional Skills and Awards of Progression. We can advise which would be most suitable for you.
