To be considered for admission, applicants must meet certain minimum requirements. Since there are many more qualifying applicants than there are places available, the University has to use a selection procedure, and hence applying to the University having met the minimum requirements does not guarantee a place.
To be able to enter the University for a degree programme, an applicant must have a minimum of six passes in the IGCSE or equivalent high school qualification. The passes must include a C grade or better in English Language and four other relevant subjects.
Each Undegraduate programme has special requirements, and the applicant needs to note these requirements for the programme they are interested in applying for.
The University also has an alternative route for entry into the University through the Mature Age Entry Scheme.
