Entry requirements for Oman

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 Thanawiya Amma School Leaving Certificate with an overall average of 85% and at least 85% 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.
