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.
Students taking the Certficado de Educaión Secundaria Común Completa or Diploma de Aptitud Profesional (technical-professional education) 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 admissions to year 1 of the Bachelors degree (Licenciatura), if relevant subjects have been studied and strong grades achieved – grades ranging from a minimum average of 12 to 13.
Students taking A levels or the IB should refer to the online undergraduate prospectus for entry requirements.
Students taking APs or SATs 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 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.
