Students offering A-levels, the International Baccalaureate Diploma or SATs can apply for direct entry to year one of undergraduate programmes.

Postgraduate Taught


Iraqi students holding a Bachelors degree can apply for a Masters programme. For most programmes we will be looking for an average of 67% or above from a recognised Iraqi university
