Algeria / Entry requirements
General requirements for undergraduate programmes
Due to differences in the UK and Algerian education systems, students with Algerian Baccalaureate will be required to follow an approved international foundation course.
Students who have an overall Achieve 16/20 (with a minimum of 16/20 in Mathematics and Physics) would be considered for the University's Science and Engineering with an integrated foundation year programme.
Applications for the University’s Biosciences with a foundation year programme would be considered following completion of the Algerian Baccalaureate on a case by case basis.
Students who have achieve good grades in the Algerian Baccalaureate would be considered for the foundation programmes (Engineering and Science, Humanities and Social Sciences (including Management and Law), Biosciences, Pharmacy and Psychology) run in partnership with the University by INTO Manchester. Subject specific requirements may apply.
General requirements for postgraduate programmes
For admission onto a master's course we require a high score in the Licence Diplome d’Ingenieur/d’Architecte d’Etat, or Diplome d’Etudes Superieures, or Diplome (in a professional field). The typical minimum score is 15/20 but requirements vary by department and course.
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. We have further information about our English language policy, including a list of some of the English language qualifications we accept.
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 academic 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.
