Entry requirements

See our country-specific equivalencies.

We welcome students with a range of international qualifications: 


Typical entry requirements range from AAA-CCC at A Level, 30-34 points in the International Baccalaureate, or 65-85% from an approved International Foundation Year.

Postgraduate Taught

For direct entry these range from a 2:1 to a 2:2 UK honours degree. Our Pre-Masters Programme offers another route into Surrey for specific programmes.

PHD Study

We usually expect you to have a bachelors degree equivalent to a 2:1 UK honours degree, a good masters degree and a research proposal before applying.


If you have any queries about entry requirements for any of our undergraduate or postgraduate courses please email international@surrey.ac.uk.

English language requirements and courses

All our students require a good standard of English language to be eligible to study with us. If you don’t meet our requirements, we offer intensive pre-sessional English language courses, designed to take you to the level of English ability and skill required for your studies.
