City Visits

City staff make frequent trips to attend fairs, visit schools and undertake one-to-one counselling with student and parents.

We are aware that in China there may be some confusion around the translation of City, University of London, as there are two universities which use this name in Mandarin Chinese - City, University of London and London Metropolitan University.

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.

Undergraduate

Qualifications from China's high school system are not accepted for direct entry and so students would need to undertake a foundation programme first. Students successfully completing INTO City’s International Foundation Programme or Kaplan International College London’s Foundation Certificate at the required level will have guaranteed entry into City’s undergraduate degrees.

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.

Postgraduate

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.

English language requirements

English language requirements will vary from course to course and the information on this page is only intended to be a general guide. For individual course requirements, please refer to the course pages, or contact Pei tingting.

Secure English Language Test - For students requiring visas, a Secure English Language Test (SELT) is usually required. Find a full list of acceptable English Language qualifications.

Pre-sessional English programme - Students who do not meet the English language requirements for their course may have the option to undertake our Pre-sessional English programme at INTO City prior to entry into the institution.
