Entry requirements

If you do not have UK qualifications, we will consider equivalent qualifications from your home country 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 for your course, or your country isn't listed, please contact internationaladmissions@uca.ac.uk.

f you are studying the International Baccalaureate, the number of points you need to achieve can vary depending on the strength of your portfolio and the number of Higher Level points you achieve. 

As a guide, the number of points applicants are usually asked to achieve is:

  • Bachelor’s courses (except BA (Hons) Architecture): 27 total points. 
  • BA (Hons) Architecture: 29 points.
  • Four Year Bachelor’s and Further Education Courses: minimum of 24 points.

We do occasionally make offers lower than this entry criteria, to students with a strong portfolio or those who have faced difficulties that have affected their performance and who were expected to achieve a higher result.
