Useful information

Entry requirements

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).

If you do not meet the entry requirements for one of our courses, you can apply for an International Foundation Year run by the Global Study Centre. The GSC provides academic support to help you progress to your chosen undergraduate degree at the University of Leicester.

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) 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 requirement.
