Entry requirements

If you are thinking about studying in London, choosing City means benefitting from our central location, teaching quality and close links to business and the professions. We offer a wide range of undergraduate and postgraduate degrees and are consistently highly ranked for graduate starting salaries.

City, University of London welcomes applications from Chinese students. London is a great place for students from China to study as it is a global city with virtually every nationality represented in some way.


Applicants holding the Senior High School Certificate must successfully complete a recognised foundation course.  Applicants successfully completing the INTO City International Foundation Programme or Kaplan International College London Foundation Certificate at the required level are guaranteed entry to City’s undergraduate degree programmes.

Gaokao is considered for direct entry to undergraduate degree courses.  Gaokao requirements differ depending on the year and province taken.  In addition, the subject and score requirements differ between courses.  Enquiries regarding specific courses can be made via the Admissions link on the course page.

International qualifications such as A level and IB are accepted for direct entry, and details of grades requirements for these qualifications can be found on the course pages.

2021 Entry for IB students

In 2021 the Mathematics curriculum for the International Baccalaureate Diploma is changing.

After careful consideration, City will accept both the Mathematics: Analysis and approaches route and the Mathematics: Applications and interpretation route as equivalent to A-Level Mathematics for all of our undergraduate courses. This means where our courses required A level Mathematics equivalency, we will accept both of the available Higher Level routes within the International Baccalaureate.

Current IB requirements will be clearly stated on the individual course pages, but please contact us if you have any questions.


Applicants will be considered for most postgraduate courses with a good Chinese bachelor’s degree from a recognised University.

Students who don’t meet the requirements for direct entry may opt to undertake a graduate preparation programme. Students successfully completing INTO City’s Graduate Diploma or Kaplan International College London’s Pre-Master’s Course at the required level will have guaranteed entry into City’s postgraduate degrees.
