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 Sudan

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.




Sudan School Certificate plus successful completion of an approved Foundation Year. International Baccalaureate Diploma with a minimum of 30 points.

Postgraduate Taught



Successful completion of a master's degree with good scores will be considered for postgraduate study. The University of Liverpool will also sometimes consider applicants who hold a bachelor's degree with good grades (minimum of 6.5 out of 10) from certain Sudanese universities.

Postgraduate Research



Each application is assessed on its own merits; however students will usually be expected to hold a master's degree in an appropriate discipline. Applications from graduates who do not have master's degrees, but who do have very good undergraduate degrees, and have had previous exposure to research or thesis writing, are also welcomed.

Each research degree lists the English language requirements you'll need to apply.

English language requirements

To study at the University of Liverpool, you’ll need to demonstrate you can speak English. If you need a visa to study in the UK, evidence of competency in English is required to secure your visa.
