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

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.

Masters entry requirements

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 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.
