For Admission to Master’s Degree a UK Bachelor’s degree in an appropriate subject, awarded with first or 2nd-class Honors, or a qualification of an equivalent standard from a university or educational institution in your country is required. Where the US/Canadian marking scheme is used, a minimum grade point average (GPA) of 3.0 is required
If English isn’t your first language, the university or college may ask you to take an English language test or show your English language qualifications before you can enroll. This may also be necessary for your visa application.

- International English Language Testing Service (IELTS) with score 6 or above depending on the course and institution
- Grade C in Cambridge Proficiency of English or Cambridge Advanced English; Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) with score 550 or above.
- NEAB University Entrance Test in English for speakers of other languages at Grade 3.
