Unlock your potential at a world-leading university with a truly international student community.
Students taking the Thanaweya A'ama or Al Azhar general secondary school certificate are required to complete a foundation course.
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 from Egypt are typically required to successfully complete a foundation programme.
However, if you have completed one or two years of study at a recognised institution, you may be eligible for year one entry. An average of 70-75% is typically required for admission, depending on your chosen course.
Our Undergraduate Prospectus lists entry requirements for A levels and International Baccalaureate students for each course.
Students taking APs or SATs should refer to our 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 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 Egyptian 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.
Upper Second Class (2:1)
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.
Applicants should hold a masters degree of a good standard from a recognised university in a relevant subject area.
See the masters section for guidance on the grades we typically require from Egyptian 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.

“I would honestly recommend attending the International Welcome Events. I made quite a few friends during that weekend, and it's always good to have time to settle in and make your room your own. It's also a chance to get to know where you’ll be living by exploring town and walking around the campuses.”
