The Universtiy of Liverpool welcomes applications from Kazakhstani students for all subject levels. If you wish to learn more about your options, please see entry requirements below.

Please note that admissions criteria may vary depending on the course you have applied for and that the grades published on this website provide general guidance only.

Entry requirements



Students who have completed an internationally-recognised qualification (e.g. UK A-Levels or an International Baccalaureate) can apply for entry to the first year of an undergraduate programme.

The University of Liverpool will consider applications from students who have spent some time at University of Kazakhstan and who now want to transfer credit in either the first or second year of undergraduate study at Liverpool. It is not possible to enter directly into third (or any subsequent) year of undergraduate programmes, and it is not possible to transfer credit into any clinical programmes.

Postgraduate Taught


Students should be considered on their academic performance to date and will be expected to have completed a four-year undergraduate (bachelors or bakalava) degree from a recognised Kazakh university. We normally expect students to obtain an overall good grade (i.e. a ‘B’ grade). We appreciate that different Kazakh Universities use different marking schemes. If your undergraduate degree is awarded on the GPA system, we would normally look for a minimum cumulative GPA of approximately:

  • 3.4 out of 4.0
  • 3.7 out of 4.33
  • 4.25 out of 5

Postgraduate Research


To be eligible to apply for a PhD or MPhil programme, students should generally already have a Masters (Magistr) qualification from Kazakhstan.
