English language entry requirements

  • Successful applicants will usually 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

  • Since our entry criteria may differ from one course to another, we can only offer a broad indication of the Grade Point Averages we expect students to achieve.
  • Master's degrees: we generally expect applicants to have a Haksa from a recognised South Korean university. For programmes that require the equivalent of a UK Bachelors degree (2:1) you should have a Grade Point Average of of 3.2/4.0, 3.3/4.3 or 3.5/4.5. For programmes that require the equivalent of a UK Bachelors degree (2:2) you should have a Grade Point Average of 3.0/4.0 or 3.2/4.3 or 3.3/4.5. The minimum grade may vary depending on the university at which you studied, and from one subject to another. Relevant work experience may also be taken 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 generally expect applicants to have a Suksa from a recognised South Korean university with at least a final GPA of 3.2/4.0, 3.3/4.3 or 3.5/4.5. A key consideration will be the quality of your research proposal.  You must also meet our English Language proficiency requirements.
