International Foundation Programme

Students whose qualifications do not meet our general entrance or course requirements may need to take an international foundation programme to qualify for entry to an undergraduate degree programme.

Undergraduate programmes

Typical Edge Hill University entry requirements range from 112 – 120 UCAS points. Students studying the Hong Kong Diploma of Secondary Education (HKDSE) must achieve the required UCAS points through any combination of the following:

HKDSE ScoreUCAS Points

Students are required to achieve a minimum score of three in core subjects (we would not take your Chinese HKSDE score into consideration) and have a minimum of two elective subjects.

International Baccalaureate (IB)

We are happy to accept students who have completed the IB qualification. We will use UCAS Tariff scores to assess a student’s suitability. Subject-specific requirements at Higher Level (HL) Grade 5 may apply. For clarity of entry requirements for the course you’re interested in, please contact the International Office.

Postgraduate programmes

Applicants who have completed a Bachelor degree from a recognised Hong Kong university will be considered for admission onto a Masters degree, with either a 2:2 or 2:1 depending on the specific programme requirement.
