Undergraduate courses

Full-time courses across our five faculties typically last for three to four years, although some degrees such as medicine and architecture have a longer duration.

Undergraduate entry requirements

Our Undergraduate Prospectus lists entry requirements for A levels and International Baccalaureate students for each course.

Students taking the Licencia de Educación/Enseñanza Media or Técnico-Professional (Secondary School Certificates) are required to take a Foundation course.

Students who have successfully completed the first year at a recognised University may be exempt from the Foundation programme and considered for admission to year 1 of the Bachelor’s degree, if relevant subjects have been studied and strong grades achieved – minimum grade of 5.

This summary is provided as guidance and requirements may vary for individual courses, which often require high grades in relevant subjects. Students taking APs or SATs should refer to our entry requirements for the USA.
