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 Vietnamese university, you may be considered for entry to the first year of a Bachelors degree if you have studied relevant subjects.
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
If you have been awarded a four-year Bachelors degree you can be considered for entry to a Masters degree at Leicester.
If you are applying for a degree which entry criteria given is stated in UK degree terms as ‘Upper Second’ class, we require a GPA of at least 7.0 out of 10 overall. If the entry criteria given is stated in UK degree terms as ‘Lower second’ class, we require a GPA of at least 6.5 out of 10 overall.

PhDs and other research degrees
To apply for a PhD (or other postgraduate research qualification) you must have a four-year undergraduate (Bachelors) degree from a recognised Vietnamese university, usually in a related subject area, with an approximate GPA of 7.0 out of 10.0 (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.
