Entry requirements

In order to study at undergraduate level (Bachelor’s degree), you will need to have attained a minimum of grade B3 in five WASSCE subjects, as well as successful completion of a 1-year Foundation Programme. If you have achieved your required WASSCE grades, but have not completed your Foundation Programme, you may be eligible to join our International Foundation Programme.

For Postgraduate study (Master’s degree) you will need to have the equivalent to a British Bachelor’s (Honours) degree, the level of which will differ for each school of study.

All applications will be considered individually and work experience, and other interdisciplinary achievements are taken into consideration when deciding upon all applications.

Agents

We work closely with counsellors and overseas representatives who can advise you on how to apply for your degree as well as in completing your visa application.

You are not obliged to make an application through an agent but we strongly recommend that you consult with them if you require a visa counselling service. The International Office may be able to assist you with your application and let you know what documentation you need to prepare but are unable to offer advice on visas.
