Entry requirements

Foundation

If you have graduated from High School with the Thai Certificate of Secondary Education you will need to complete a Foundation Year to be eligible for admission to an undergraduate degree at Leicester.

If you need to do a foundation year, the University of Leicester International Study Centre (ISC) offer an International Foundation Year in:

  • Economics and Management 
  • Engineering and Technology
  • Science
  • Society and Culture

We also offer the International Year One for management programmes.

Once you’ve successfully completed the International Foundation Year, you’ll be able to progress to an undergraduate degree at the University of Leicester.

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 Thai 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 with an approximate cumulative GPA of 3.0 (depending on the subject that you wish to study) from a recognised Thai university you will be considered for entry to a Masters degree.

For more information about available degrees please see the 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 Thai university, usually in a related subject area, with an approximate cumulative GPA of 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.
