  • 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.
  • 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.
    • A-level AAA = 144 UCAS tariff points = comparable offer 95% (corresponding subject grade: A = 9)

Postgraduate entry requirements

  • To be considered for entry onto a Master’s degree at Birkbeck, a student from Lithuania must have completed a Bachelor’s degree/post-2000 Bakalauro Diplomas/Bachelor’s degree 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 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.
  • Scale for both Magistro and Bakalaur:
  • Lithuanian degree classification:
    • 10 point evaluation: 9/10; 5 point evaluation: 5- (English translation or equivalent: Excellent = 1st)
    • 10 point evaluation: 8; 5 point evaluation: 4 (English translation or equivalent: Good = 2:1)
    • 10 point evaluation: 7; 5 point evaluation: 4- (English translation or equivalent: Highly satisfactory = 2:2).

Research degrees entry requirements

  • The usual entrance requirement for a research degree is a Master’s degree from a recognised university; schools may accept students with high grades in the undergraduate degree.
