Entry requirements for Vietnam

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

Foundation courses

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 Upper Secondary School Graduation Certificate with an overall average of 7 and at least 7 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 Foundation Office for more information.

Undergraduate courses

You will be required to successfully complete your high school certificate with grades of at least 7 (or an average of grade B) in addition to a recognised one-year foundation programme.

We will also consider successful completion of year one of a relevant four-year honour's degree at a recognised institution in Vietnam.

For me, going to university is not only about getting a degree. It's also about meeting friends and experiencing what student life is. I have never regretted choosing Cardiff as my university.
