For undergraduate courses, a student usually needs to have achieved further education qualifications (such as A-levels, International Baccalaureate, Scottish Higher, or equivalent qualifications from your country) in related subjects.

For Admission to Master’s Degree a UK Bachelor’s degree in an appropriate subject, awarded with first or 2nd-class Honors, or a qualification of an equivalent standard from a university or educational institution in your country is required.

Where the US/Canadian marking scheme is used, a minimum grade point average (GPA) of 3.0 is required.

If English isn’t your first language, the university or college may ask you to take an English language test or show your English language qualifications before you can enroll.

We have compiled a list of low tuition universities in the United Kingdom. Please endeavour to contact each university directly for proper guidance on how to apply and admission requirements. Best wishes!
