Uganda / Entry requirements
General requirements for undergraduate courses
Entry requirements will vary from course to course and will be based upon the standard UK requirements.
We ask for successful completion of the UCE (including English at grade 4) plus Ugandan A-levels. Please see the course listings for our standard A-Level offer.
General requirements for postgraduate/research courses
Specific requirements vary by discipline and academic School. Applications are considered on a case-by-case basis by academic selectors.
A minimum of an Honours Upper (IIi) or GPA of more than 3.6 from a recognised Ugandan university is generally required for most of our Masters programmes.
For PhD programmes a Masters degree is also required.
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.
