Entry requirements


For information about the International Foundation Year please see the International Study Centre website.

Undergraduate (Bachelors) degrees

  • If you are studying A-levels or the International Baccalaureate (IB) then you can begin from the first year of a Bachelors degree. Please see individual course pages for entry requirements.
  • If you have already completed the first year of an undergraduate degree at a Bruneian university, you may be considered for entry to the first or second year of a Bachelors degree (if you have studied relevant subjects and/or modules).

For more information about available degrees please see individual course pages.

Postgraduate (Masters) degrees

Bruneian students who hold a Bachelors degree with a minimum classification of 2:2/2:1 (depending on the subject that you wish to study) will be considered for entry to a Masters degree.

For more information about available degrees please see individual course pages.

PhDs and other research degrees

To apply for a PhD (or other postgraduate research qualification, such as MPhil, DClinPsy, DSocSci, EdD or MD) you must have an undergraduate (Bachelors) degree from a recognised Bruneian university, usually in a related subject area, with a minimum classification of 2:2/2:1 (depending on the subject that you wish to study).

You must also be able to demonstrate practical knowledge of appropriate research methodologies. Research degrees are demanding and intensive: to succeed at this level you must be highly motivated, be able to work independently, and have an appropriate familiarity with the discipline and its associated research techniques/methodologies.

Where a Masters degree is required, this is indicated in the relevant description on our Postgraduate Research webpages, together with further information about requirements.
