Entry requirements

Undergraduate courses

To enter a degree course at City, students must satisfy City's general minimum requirement of passes in two subjects at GCE A-level or equivalent. University accepts a wide range of equivalent qualifications to A-levels.

Students must also meet the specific requirements of the course they're applying for, which may be higher than City's minimum requirements.

The actual offer you receive may differ from the requirement listed on the course page. As many of university courses are very competitive, possessing the minimum requirement does not guarantee admission.
