Entry requirements: which qualifications do you need?
Pathway programmes for applicants from Sri Lanka
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.
Passes in three subjects in the London or Sri Lankan A-levels with grades as per prospectus entries. Please check the course list for the standard offer for the course you have chosen.
Successful completion of a three-year bachelor's degree with high marks or a four-year special degree with minimum second class.
Each research degree lists the English language requirements you'll need to apply.
