Hong Kong

Birkbeck welcomes significant numbers of students from Hong Kong at postgraduate degree level. Our Hong Kong students study across a wide range of disciplines including Management, Marketing, Information Systems and Finance.

English language entry requirements

  • For the majority of postgraduate degrees, applicants must have met our English language requirements by the time they expect to start their studies.
  • If you have recently studied successfully for an academic qualification taught in English, you may not be required to submit a language test. In which case, please indicate in your application that you want exemption from an English Language test.

Academic entry requirements

  • Master's degrees: We generally expect applicants to have a Bachelor's degree from a recognised university in Hong Kong with a minimum degree classification of 2.1 or 2.2.  The grade we require may vary according to the subject applicants are interested in. We may also take relevant work experience into account.
  • Master's Foundation Programme: If you do not meet these entry criteria then you may be eligible to apply for the London FoundationCampus Master's Foundation Programme (MFP). Students who successfully complete the MFP are welcome to apply for a range of postgraduate programmes at Birkbeck for the following intake.
  • Research degrees: We typically expect applicants to have a Master's degree from a recognised university in Hong Kong with a good grade. A key consideration will be the quality of your research proposal. You must also meet our English Language requirements.
