The University’s normal entry criteria apply to all international students. For details of country-specific entry requirements please visit your home country page on our website.
English language requirements for any degree
The University has formal requirements for all applicants. These are normally English Language qualifications which we recognise as meeting our entry criteria. Requirements may vary between programmes, and you are advised to check these carefully when going through course listings.
The following table sets out the main qualifications we recognise and the levels that are normally required for admission. It is intended as general guidance only - the offer of a place, if it includes an English Language condition, will specify the level of English that you are required to meet.
The University of Huddersfield is pleased to accept a Pass in all four elements at the Proficiency Level of the Ascentis Anglia ESOL Language qualification as meeting the University’s English Language requirements for students from the EU.
For entry onto Undergraduate courses a Diploma (from an intermediate institute) such as Maahaad Motawasid is required. Students with an Advanced Certificate of Technical Education or Al-Azhar Training Diploma would be able to study an undergraduate degree programme via the University of Huddersfield's International Foundation Year.
For entry onto Postgraduate courses a Bachelor degree from a Private or Public university is required. Please note that students with a Bachelor Degree from a higher institute will not be eligible for Postgraduate study but can choose to study one of our top-up programmes.
Please note all applicants are considered individually and there may be alternative qualifications that are acceptable.
We make regular visits and attend a number of education exhibitions and fairs throughout the year.

Meet an official representative for your country
