Entry requirements for foundation degree programmes
Foundation degrees are designed specifically for students with no formal qualifications. Applicants for admission to foundation degree programmes must be at least 18 years of age, but are not required to satisfy the general entrance requirements for first degrees.
Admission is based on the likelihood of your ability to complete the programme successfully and to derive benefit from the programme.
We take account of all relevant information, which may include:
- your personal statement
- assessment at interview
- performance in written tasks or other tests set for admission purposes
- other evidence of your performance or potential
- relevant work experience.
If you have any questions, please contact the My Birkbeck helpdesk.
