Thailand / Entry requirements

General requirements for undergraduate courses

Students who have completed 12 years of education (MAW 6) are normally required to complete a foundation course before entering onto the first year of a three-year bachelors degree.

The University offers foundations in science and engineering courses and recognises a number of other providers for courses related to business and management subjects.

Students who have undertaken some study at university level in Thailand may be considered for transfer into the first or second year of an undergraduate course. A number of students enter in this way each year and in such cases we look at your subjects and grades to establish whether a transfer is possible.

Although formal applications must come through UCAS, we are happy to consider your qualifications informally to indicate the likely chances of gaining admission.

General requirements for postgraduate/research courses

Entry requirements for postgraduate study range between courses but are usually between CGPA 2.8 and 3.4 from a recognised university.

Most PhD courses will normally require CGPA 3.2 or above.

English language requirements

All applicants to the University (from the UK and overseas) are required to show evidence of English language proficiency.

UK Visas and Immigration (UKVI) requires that every student from outside the UK and the EU must show evidence of a minimum level of English language in order to be granted a UK visa (Tier 4 visa) to study at undergraduate or postgraduate level. This level is often referred to as the ‘B2 level’.

Additionally, our individual Schools may ask for specific English language proficiency levels that are necessary for their academic programmes. In most cases these requirements are likely to be higher than the B2 level. Further information about our English language policy, including a list of some of the English language qualifications we accept, can be found here.

Some Schools ask that the appropriate score has been met before you apply for a course, while others give conditional offers subject to applicants achieving our general entry requirement level of English language proficiency before starting the course.

Under certain circumstances, the University may consider IGCSE/O-level English, or International Baccalaureate Language (English) or Language and Literature (English) at high grades as a recognised English language qualification.

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.
