Entry requirements


If you have graduated from High School with the STTB-SMA you will need to complete a Foundation Year to be eligible for admission to an undergraduate degree at Leicester. For information about the International Foundation Year, please see the International Study Centre website.

Undergraduate (Bachelors) degrees

  • If you are studying UK (GCE) 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 an Indonesian university, you may be considered for entry to the first year of a Bachelors degree if you have studied relevant subjects.
For more information about available degrees please see individual course pages.

Postgraduate (Masters) degrees

If you hold a Bachelors degree (Sarjana) with an approximate cumulative GPA of 2.8 to 3.0 (depending on the subject that you wish to study) you 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 a Bachelors degree (Sarjana) from a recognised Indonesian university, usually in a related subject area, with an approximate cumulative GPA of 2.8 to 3.0 (depending on the subject that you wish to study) which is equivalent to a UK Upper Second Class Honours degree (also known as a 2:1).

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 requirement.

Scholarships and funding opportunities

The University of Leicester offers a number of scholarships for new international students. You should also check in your own country whether scholarships are available for study overseas, from your government or other organisations.


The Indonesia BUDI Scholarship programme is a joint venture between the Ministry of Research, Technology and Higher Education and the Institute of Education Fund Management. It enables permanent or prospective faculty members at Indonesian universities to apply for scholarships to undertake PhD studies abroad. Some Masters degrees may also be funded. We welcome PhD applications in all the subject areas offered by the University. Further information about research at Leicester can be found on our PhD pages. Please contact Suzanne Alexander with any questions you may have.
