Unlock your potential at a world-leading university with a truly international student community.
Students taking the Sudan School Certificate (formerly called the Secondary School Certificate or Higher Secondary School Certificate) are normally required to take a foundation programme.
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.
Find out more about the courses, entry requirements and progression options on Kaplan's website:
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.
For those students that have completed the Sudan School Certificate, an appropriate foundation programme is required.
Students who have completed one year at recognised University post high school study may be considered for direct entry onto a bachelors 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.
For applicants who have attended University of Khartoum, Sudan University for Science and Technology, Omdurman Islamic University, University of Gezira or University of Medical Sciences and Technology, we can accept a Bachelors degree for entry to a Masters. For all other universities, we require a Masters degree for entry to a Masters. 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 Sudanese universities vary depending on the university where you have studied and the course you are applying for at Nottingham. Degrees from some Sudanese universities are consifered more presitigious than others. The summary below is provided as guidance but requirements may vary for individual courses and we do require higher grades from some universities.

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.
Exceptional students may be considered for PhD entry without a masters qualification, but this is rare and would be more suitable for New Route PhD applicants.
See the masters section for guidance on the grades we typically require from Sudanese 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.
