Entry requirements for Uganda

Our entry requirements will vary depending on your level of study, the course you are interested in and your English language proficiency.

Undergraduate courses

You will be required to hold international A-levels or the Uganda Advanced Certificate of Education (A-level) with strong grades to qualify for our undergraduate programmes.

We will also consider students with the International Baccalaureate or a Foundation programme from a reputable institution for entry on to undergraduate courses.

I did my master's here and that’s how I was inspired to do my PhD at Cardiff. It’s a great place and I feel that I am part of this family.

Postgraduate taught courses

You will be required to have an undergraduate degree in a related field, with strong grades. The majority of Schools will require a minimum of an Upper Second (2.1) grade at undergraduate level, although there are some exceptions.

Work experience can also contribute towards gaining a placement in many subjects as well.

Postgraduate research courses

You will require a master's degree with a high grade, particularly in the research elements, to be considered for our postgraduate research courses.

English language

We require a minimum of a C grade in your Uganda Certificate of Education (UCE or O-level), or IGCSE if you are studying the international system.
