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 1 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 28–30, 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 students may be admitted to Master's programmes with a lower level degree if they 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.
