Applicants from Cameroon who have taken the Cameroonian General Certificate of Education Advanced Level are accepted for direct entry. The Cameroonian Baccalauréat is not accepted for direct entry and students with this qualification will normally require a Foundation course for entry onto undergraduate programmes at the University. These offer the opportunity for guaranteed progression onto Birkbeck’s Bachelor programmes.
Applicants with the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma or A-levels will be considered for direct admission to our undergraduate degree programmes. IB requirements range from 28 to 30, depending on the course.
Applicants from Cameroon with a good Bachelor’s degree or Licence will also need to complete a Foundation course to be considered eligible for entry. Applicants who hold a Diplôme d'Etudes Superieures de Commerce (DESC) or Diplôme d'Ingénieur or a Maîtrise from a recognised institution are eligible for entry, provided they meet the relevant GPA.
If you do not meet these criteria, you can apply for Birkbeck’s International Foundation Programme, which acts as a bridge between undergraduate and postgraduate study, preparing students to study a Master’s degree in the UK. There are progression pathways onto various courses at Birkbeck.
Another option is the Master's Foundation programme, which is available for two- or three-term progression onto a wide range of Master’s degrees at Birkbeck.
