Entry requirements

Find out which qualifications will be recognised in your Birkbeck application.


  • Applicants from Argentina with the Título de Bachiller 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.
  • 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 to 30, depending on the course.


  • Applicants from Argentina who hold a good Bachelor’s degree (4-year Licenciado) 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 OnCampus' Master's Foundation programme, which is available for two- or three-term progression onto a wide range of Master’s degrees at Birkbeck.
