Applicants from Lithuania who have completed the Brandos Atestatas (Certificate of Maturity) from a gymnasium or secondary school when awarded after two years of upper secondary education can be considered for direct entry to an undergraduate course at Birkbeck, if they have achieved a minimum overall score of 8/10.
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 who do not meet the minimum requirements can consider a Foundation course, which allows students the chance to progress onto Birkbeck’s Bachelor programmes.
To be considered for entry onto a Master’s degree at Birkbeck, you must have completed a Bachelor’s degree/post-2000 Bakalauro Diplomas OR a pre-2000 Magistro Diplomas. Post-2002 Magistro Diplomas are considered from a recognised university.
Please note that all applications are considered on an individual basis and you may be admitted to Master's programmes with a lower-level degree if you have work experience relevant to the degree applied for.
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 you 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 2- or 3-term progression onto a wide range of Master’s degrees at Birkbeck.
