Have you tried researching degrees at UK universities and been confused by the listed entry requirements? What does A*AA mean? How do you know if you have a 2:1. What does it mean if they require you to have a first degree?
Entry requirements vary at Across the Pond's partner universities. Below is a guide to the basics considered by the universities when determining academic eligibility. If you are unsure, simply contact one our UK Study Experts to find out more.
Undergraduate Entry Requirements
If you want to study at one of the Britain’s leading universities, completion of a Canadian secondary school diploma is the most basic requirement for being eligible to study in the UK. Different universities will have different requirements; however, most will expect applicants to complete a secondary school diploma in accordance with their provincial or territorial standards as a minimum requirement.
Our partner universities will be looking to see that you have completed suitable courses to prepare you for entry into university level study in your subject area of choice. This means that they may look at your average but also specifically at the grade received in specific subjects.
Our Advisors will be able to help you assess where your previous grades and schooling would make you a good candidate and help you to interpret the entry requirements listed by our partner universities.
Postgraduate Entry Requirements
Canadian students who have graduated with an undergraduate (bachelor's) degree from an accredited Canadian university, with a good grade point average (usually but not exclusively 2.3 or higher), will be considered for graduate study. What if your university doesn't use a 4.0 grading scale? That's okay! That's why were are here to help. Our advisors can help you to determine which universities you can apply for based on your prior academics, including your GPA on whichever scale your school uses.
Been out of school for a while and not sure if you'll still qualify? Don't worry, we see this lots. Speak with one of our advisors and they can help you to determine your best options for re-entering academia and how your prior work experience can help.
