Unlock your potential at a world-leading university with a truly international student community.
We offer foundation courses for international students who are not qualified for direct entry to our undergraduate degree courses.
These courses are available at the University of Nottingham International College, just next to University Park Campus, in partnership with Kaplan International Colleges.

Applications and enquiries for these courses are handled by Kaplan and the college.
International foundation 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.
Applicants with international qualifications or university studies can be considered for direct entry into UG degrees.
Students who have successfully completed the first year of a Bachelor’s degree (Licenciatura) at a recognised University may be exempt from foundation programme and considered for admission to year 1 of the Bachelors degree if relevant subjects have been studied and strong grades achieved – grades ranging from minimum average of 13 to 16.
Students taking A levels or the IB should refer to the online undergraduate prospectus for entry requirements.
Students taking APs or SATIIs should refer to entry requirements for the USA.
We offer a wide range of postgraduate masters degree programmes across our five faculties. Full-time masters courses typically last for one year.
Applicants should hold a bachelors degree (Licenciatura) of a good standard from a recognised university, usually in a relevant subject area. Check course details in our Postgraduate Prospectus to see whether your chosen course requires the equivalent of an Upper Second Class (2:1) or Lower Second Class (2:2) degree.
Our entry requirements for degrees from Ecuadorian universities vary depending on the university where you have studied and the course you are applying for at Nottingham. The summary below is provided as guidance but requirements may vary for individual courses and we do require higher grades from some universities.

Lower Second Class (2:2)
Our PhD courses, available across a wide range of subject areas, typically include three years of full time research followed by an optional writing-up period of one year to complete your thesis.
A masters and bachelors degree from a recognised university are usually required for PhD entry, although exceptional students may be considered for PhD entry without a masters qualification.
See the masters section for guidance on the grades we typically require from Ecuadorian universities. These will vary depending on the university where you have studied and the course you are applying for at Nottingham.
You should identify possible supervisors at Nottingham before applying and prepare a research proposal to submit with your application.
