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.
Entry 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 Emma Thomas.
Applicants from Germany will need to have obtained good grades in Abitur for entry to undergraduate courses at City.
Students who don’t meet the requirements for direct entry may have the option to undertake our INTO City’s International Foundation Programme or Kaplan International College London’s Foundation Certificate, which then offers the opportunity for guaranteed entry into City’s bachelor programmes.
If you are applying to study at City in 2019 through the Clearing and Adjustment process, the below table shows how City matches Abitur with UK A-Level grades for Clearing.
A-Level requirements for Clearing will be published on individual course pages on UK A-Level results day on the 15th August. These may be more flexible than the standard entry requirements, depending on the results we receive and the number of remaining spaces available.
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.
