Paraguay

Undergraduate entry requirements

  • Applicants from Paraguay 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. Candidates who have completed the Titulo Intermedio (2-3 years) can be considered for first and/or second year entry depending on the subject fit.
  • Applicants who have completed one year at a Peruvian university (Titulo de Licenciado with at least 13/20) may be considered for direct entry.
  • 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.

Postgraduate entry requirements

  • To be considered for entry onto a Master’s degree at Birkbeck, a student from Paraguay must have completed a Título de Licenciado/Título de (4-6 years) or an equivalent professional title from a recognised Paraguayan university. Grades of 4/5 or higher can be considered as UK 2:1 equivalent. The Título Intermedio is a 2-3 year degree and is equivalent to a HNC, it is not suitable for postgraduate entry but holders of this award could be considered for second-year undergraduate entry or pre-Master’s courses.
  • Please note that all applications are considered on an individual basis and you may be admitted to a Master's programme 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 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 2- or 3-term progression onto a wide range of Master’s degrees at Birkbeck.
