Undergraduate (Bachelors) degrees
We are pleased to announce that we are now accepting Gaokao scores for entry to first-year undergraduate courses.
We will consider applications from students who have already received their Gaokao scores, achieving a minimum of 75% across all subject areas (except School of Leicester Medical School). You can find out more by contacting email@example.com
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 Chinese university, you may be considered for entry to the first year of a Bachelors degree if you have studied relevant subjects.
Postgraduate (Masters) degrees
If you have completed a four-year Bachelors degree in China, you can be considered for entry to a Masters degree at Leicester. If you have graduated from a prestigious university in China (Ranked in top 1,000 Chinese universities), you may be asked for 70% overall if you are applying for most Science, Engineering, Law and Business degree courses, or 75% for most Arts, Humanities, or Social Science degree courses. If you have graduated from other Chinese universities, you may require higher scores (73-78%).
If you have completed a three-year college diploma from a Chinese university, you will need to upgrade your diploma to a Bachelor’s degree with minimum 3 years working experience, or have a postgraduate degree before applying for a Master’s degree.
PhDs and other research degrees
To apply for a PhD (or other postgraduate research qualification) you must have an undergraduate (Bachelors) degree with at least 75% overall, usually in a related subject area, from a recognised Chinese university (depending on the subject that you wish to study and the rank of the university from which you graduated).
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.
