For entry to all our programmes you will need to demonstrate that your qualifications meet the University of Dundee entrance requirements. These are general guidelines only, and exact requirements will vary on an individual basis, and from course to course. The information below is based on you taking your exams under your country's national education system. If this is not the case, please refer to the entry requirements for the relevant country.

For undergraduate courses: if you have taken international school leaving qualifications such as A Levels or the International Baccalaureate (IB), the entry requirements are detailed on the individual undergraduate course pages.

For some of our postgraduate programmes there may be additional non-academic entrance requirements such as relevant work experience. These are detailed on the individual postgraduate course pages.

China-based entry requirements for 2021

We will consider applicants for entry to year one of our Bachelor programmes if they have completed a Chinese High School Graduation Certificate with 75% or HuiKao score of 75%.

The University of Dundee will consider applicants for advanced entry to year two of our Bachelor programmes if they have successfully completed the Gao Kao.  To be admitted to the University, you must have gained the following minimum scores:

A three-year Chinese university diploma would normally allow entry into the 3rd year of a related degree course.

We will consider students with a Bachelor degree with an overall average grade of 75% or above from a recognised university for entry into all University of Dundee degree courses.  We will also consider borderline cases if the student has a relevant degree and good grades in relevant subjects and/or relevant work experience of at least 5 years.
Applicants who have not met our entry requirements and are interested in one of our business courses can apply for our International Incorporated Master's degree (IIM), giving students a route to a number of our specialist business pathways.
Some of our courses may have specific additional or higher entry requirements, such as Art and Design or Medicine. If you would like additional details on specific courses please feel free to contact our International Office Team.

A Masters level qualification from a good university will normally be required. Evidence of some research experience (for example through a Masters Degree project) is expected. Transcripts of all previous degree-level studies must accompany the application.

English language requirements

For all our courses you will also need to satisfy the University's English language requirements.
