Entry requirements

If you do not have UK qualifications, we will consider equivalent qualifications from Bhutan for entry onto our Foundation, Bachelor’s and Master’s courses.

Each application we receive is considered individually and therefore these qualifications are provided as a guide.

Please also check the entry requirements on the specific course you are interested in to check for course-specific requirements.

If you are not sure if you have the necessary qualifications please contact internationaladmissions@uca.ac.uk.


For our Bachelor's courses, we usually require that you have a Bhutan Higher Secondary Education Certificate 60%.

For our International Foundation in Creative Practices and our Integrated International Foundation courses, we usually require that you have a Bhutan Higher Secondary Education Certificate (BHSEC) with a minimum of 50%.

For our Master's courses, we usually require that you have a three or four-year undergraduate degree overall 55% (Honours Bachelor degree or Professional degree) at an accredited university or college. 

We can accept 65% or higher in the HSEC (12th standard) English subject.
