With its unique attractions, famously warm welcomes, and global reputation for sport, music, architecture and culture for you to explore, there's nowhere quite like Liverpool.
Liverpool is one of the best places to be a student. It's a vibrant, iconic city, rich with different cultures. Liverpool is one of the friendliest cities I've ever been to, which makes it feel like a second home.
Entry requirements: which qualifications do you need?
Pathway programmes for applicants from Libya
Many countries have a different education system to that of the UK, so you may need further preparation before you can start university here. Pathway programmes provide an entry route for international students whose qualifications do not meet our entry requirements.
After successfully completing your Foundation Certificate or pre-Master’s programme, you're guaranteed a place on your chosen course. Pathway programmes are offered through the University of Liverpool International College.
Students who have followed the national curriculum (Thanawaya Aa'ma) are advised to complete the Foundation Certificate with University of Liverpool International College or an equivalent foundation programme.
A-levels, International Baccalaureate, SATs
Students offering A-levels, International Baccalaureate or SATs can apply for direct entry to year one of undergraduate programmes.
Libyan students can be accepted into postgraduate study, but the exact grade requirement will depend upon the grading system used in the student's first degree:
Each application is assessed on its own merits, however students will usually be expected to hold both a Bachelors and a Masters degree. Previous exposure to research or thesis writing is highly desirable.
Each research degree lists the English language requirements you'll need to apply.
