University of Bath Korean Society Korean Society

We organize two main events every year, which are the Christmas Ball and Korean New Year party. Not only students, but also many other Korean people living in Bath are invited, and people can get to know each other. We also have a Korean society football team which plays regularly.

Korean Society members try to help each other, including those who are new to the University, and make links between students and those who have graduated. We also try to expand the number of new Korean students every year by telling prospective students about the University.

These requirements will vary from subject to subject. You also need to look at course entry requirements in our undergraduate and postgraduate prospectuses.

Foundation Programmes

Inmungye High School Diploma If you have completed the Senior High School Certificate (Inmungye High School Diploma), then you will need to complete a foundation programme to progress on to a Bachelor’s degree.

We recommend our International Foundation Year for high school graduates; it is the ideal preparation for undergraduate studies.

Undergraduate Degrees

A Level or International Baccalaureate (IB) We welcome applications from students taking A Level examinations, the International Baccalaureate (IB) and certain other internationally recognised qualifications for direct entry into undergraduate programmes.

We have in the past received applications from students attending international schools in South Korea as well as Korean students undertaking their schooling in the UK.

Detailed entry requirements can be found in the undergraduate prospectus.

Entry from a South Korean University It is sometimes possible to apply for Year 1 entry to an undergraduate degree if you have studied for one year at a university in South Korea. Entry requirements will depend on the subjects you have studied, your grades and the university you have attended.

The University may also consider students who hold a Junior College Diploma for entrance to Year 1 of a bachelor’s degree course.

Postgraduate Taught Degrees

Bachelors degree (Haksa) from a recognised institution If you hold a Haksa (bachelors) degree with a GPA of at least 3.5 (out of 4.5) or 3.0 (out of 4.3) from a recognised institution, then you may be considered for postgraduate study.

Grade requirements vary as we consider a number of factors, such as subject of study, scores in individual classes, and the institution at which you obtained your degree.

Details of the entry requirements for each of our postgraduate taught degrees are provided in the postgraduate prospectus.

Please read them carefully, as there can sometimes be additional requirements, such as the need for work experience or a very specific academic background.

Applicants will not be asked to provide a GMAT report except in certain circumstances for the MBA programme.

For the MBA: where applicants have less than 4 years of relevant, postgraduate, management experience or do not have a first degree, but have a significant number of years relevant management experience -– a good GMAT score (minimum 600) is required.

Postgraduate Research Degrees
