Entry requirements for Uruguay

During the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak we want to ensure the welfare of our staff and students. Our staff won't be able to attend international exhibitions or events at this time but you can still get in touch.

Entry onto our courses will depend on the qualifications you have been awarded in Uruguay and your English language ability.

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

International Foundation Programme

If you have graduated from the national high school system, you will be required to successfully complete a one year International Foundation Programme before entering our undergraduate courses.

You will be required to successfully complete the Título de Bachillerato with an overall average of 70 from 100 or 8 from 12 (depending upon grading system used) and at least 70 (or 8) in key subject areas to be considered for admission on to our International Foundation Programme.

Some subjects, such as healthcare allied professions, will require higher grades. Please contact the International Office for more information.
