If you require a Student Visa to study at Birkbeck, you will need to meet specific entry requirements as specified by the Home Office.

Undergraduate entry requirements

Applicants from Uruguay holding a Bachillerato will need to complete 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 also be considered for direct admission to our undergraduate degree programmes. IB requirements range from 28 to 30, depending on the course.

Postgraduate entry requirements

For entry onto a Master’s degree, most Uruguayan students would need to have completed a Licenciado or equivalent (80%/3.0 GPA = 2:1; 70%/2.8 GPA = 2:2) from a recognised institution.

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.

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

Research degrees entry requirements

The usual entrance requirement for a research degree is a Master’s degree (Maestria) from a recognised university; schools may accept students with high grades in the undergraduate degree.

Applicants are strongly urged to contact potential supervisors within the department before submitting a research application.
