General undergraduate entry requirements

The following details our general entry requirements which cover most undergraduate programmes but please make sure to also check individual programmes for specific requirements.

We tend to refer to entry requirements in terms of standard British qualifications (e.g. A-levels) however, admissions tutors at Queen Mary are familiar with international qualifications and welcome applications from students with equivalent qualifications. 

The admissions information on this web page reflects our current standard admissions criteria (which does change from time to time) and supersedes any information in printed publications.

English Language           


For further information about the A-level requirements across our courses, please check the course finder pages for each specific undergraduate programme.
