Entry Qualifications


Basic Requirements Basic Requirements

In order to be accepted to a degree course at UEA, you must satisfy two requirements:

  • You must hold at least a Grade C or Grade 4 in GCSE Mathematics and English or a recognised equivalent (please note that in exceptional cases the above may be waived)
  • You must satisfy the particular requirements for your degree programme (for example, specified grades in accepted qualifications).


A wide range of qualifications are acceptable and the admissions office will be able to give you advice on your own personal circumstances.  All of our courses have an entry requirements tab and you can check these by using our course search.

UCAS Tariff

Our offers ask for you to achieve grades in the qualifications that you are studying.  It is not our normal practice to give you an offer in UCAS Tariff points.  However, it is important that you display all of your qualifications on your UCAS Application as we may look at the additional qualifications undertaken by you, and they have UCAS Tariff points attached to them.  If you have not quite met the offer in grades we may look to see how many UCAS Tariff points you have to help with our decision making.

Key Skill Qualifications

Key Skills are an increasingly important part of both school and university education and accordingly all students are encouraged to develop these skills and evidence this on the UCAS application form.

Provision of Key Skills is not currently universal amongst schools and colleges, and so the University will not at this stage require Key Skills as a part of the general entrance requirement.

International Students

We would encourage you to visit our International pages for more information on the Country you are applying from.  You will also find our English Language requirements on the ‘requirements’ tab for each course by using the course search.
