Entry requirements

See our country-specific equivalencies.


We consider a range of high school qualifications for entry onto our undergraduate courses.

If you do not meet our entry requirements, you can apply to study for an International Foundation Year at our International Study Centre, which will prepare you for a full undergraduate degree course.

Please email international@surrey.ac.uk for further advice on entry requirements.


To enrol on a masters course at Surrey, you will need the equivalent of a 2:1 or 2:2 degree from a recognised university. If you would like advice on the requirements from the country in which you are studying, please email international@surrey.ac.uk.

All our students need a good standard of English language to be eligible to study with us. See our accepted list of English language qualifications, visit our undergraduatepostgraduate taught and postgraduate research listings pages, and find your chosen course to view our specific requirements.

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. We are also a British Council accredited IELTS test centre. ​​​​​​
