Undergraduate entry requirements

  • Applicants from Azerbaijan 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. Students may also be considered with at least 1 year of an approved Bachelor’s programme from a recognised Azerbaijani university with a minimum 4 (out of 5) GPA or good. Although the offer will vary from subject to subject.
  • 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

  • Students who hold a Bachelor’s degree with a minimum average grade of 4/B/Good or Master’s/Magister degree with a minimum average grade of 4/B/Good from a recognised university are eligible for entry onto a Master’s degree.
  • Relevant work experience may also be considered for students whose GPAs are slightly below the preferred requirements.
  • 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.
