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.

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 Simon Denton.

Undergraduate

Singapore-Cambridge GCE A-levels are accepted for direct entry and are considered equivalent to British A-levels on a subject by subject basis.  For individual course requirements, please refer to the course pages, or contact Simon Denton.

Diploma holders can be considered for advanced entry to year 2 some courses on a case by case basis.

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

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.

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 Singaporean bachelor’s degree from a recognised university. Entry requirements will vary by course for more information about specific course requirements please contact Simon Denton.

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.
