Undergraduate 

  • Applicants from Myanmar who have taken the Basic Education Standard X Examination/Matriculation Examination 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.
  • Students who have completed Year 1 or Year 2 of a local degree with a minimum mark of 70% would be eligible to apply directly to Year 1 of an undergraduate degree.
  • 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.

Postgraduate 

  • Applicants with a Bachelor's degree from Myanmar will normally be required to complete the 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 two- or three-term progression onto a wide range of Master’s degrees at Birkbeck.

Research degrees 

  • To be considered for entry to a research degree, applicants must have successfully completed a Master's degree from a recognised institution.
  • Applicants are strongly urged to contact potential supervisors within the department before submitting a research application.
