Cameroon / Entry requirements

General requirements for undergraduate programmes

Students who hold Cameroon GCE A-levels will be considered for direct admission onto undergraduate programmes.

Due to differences in the UK and Algerian education systems, students with a Baccalauréat de l’Enseignement Secondaire Général will be required to follow an approved international foundation course.

Students who have an overall Achieve 17/20 (with a minimum of 17/20 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 achieved 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 degree students will typically require one of the below with a minimum grade of 16/20:

  • Four-year licence
  • Diplôme d'Études Superieures de Commerce
  • Diplôme d'Ingénieur
  • Maîtrise

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.
