Entry requirements

General requirements for undergraduate courses

Applicants offering the Tawjahiya (Secondary School Leaving Certificate) will normally need to do a foundation year for programmes in science and engineering disciplines.

Generally, we look for an overall average of 85%, with a minimum of 85% in key subjects. For example, for Engineering degrees, these would include maths and physics, as well as other science subjects.

General requirements for postgraduate/research courses

Students who have completed a first degree of four years duration can normally be considered for admission onto a one year Masters degree.

Admissions tutors typically look for a GPA of 3.2 (out of 4). Your relative class position may also be considered but this can vary between courses.

English language requirements

English Language requirements vary by course and department but are usually the equivalent of IELTS 6.0–7.5.

Some departments ask that the appropriate score has been met before you apply for a course whilst other departments give conditional offers subject to applicants achieving our general entry requirement level of English Language proficiency before starting the course.

Other entry requirements

Please note that this is generic information only. Faculties and Schools have different entry requirements and some qualifications may not be acceptable for certain courses, so it is important to check with the School directly before you apply.

Some courses have additional entry requirements such as previous work experience, submission of written work with the application or previous study of a particular subject.
