Students who have the Secondary Education Certificate plus one year of a Bachelor’s degree from a recognised university with a minimum GPA of 65% may also be considered.

  • Applicants with other qualifications will be considered for a four-year course with foundation programme in their field of interest. Upon successful completion of the Foundation Year, students will automatically progress on to our three-year degree. Alternatively applicants can opt for a Foundation course for entry onto undergraduate programmes at the university.

Postgraduate

  • Please note that all applications are considered on an individual basis and you may be admitted to Master's programmes with a lower-level degree if you have work experience relevant to the degree applied for.
  • 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.

Research degrees
