Students from Belize are admitted to the University of Edinburgh with a range of qualifications: GCE A Levels, the IB, the American High School Diploma with SAT’s or AP’s and other recognised regional systems.
Students who have completed Caribbean Advanced Proficiency Examinations (CAPE) with two single-unit and two double-unit courses achieving no less than 2 in any unit/subject may be considered for undergraduate study at the University of Edinburgh.
Applicants with qualifications other than those listed above will usually be required to complete a Foundation Year before entering the University.
Students must have the equivalent of a very good UK Bachelor degree (from a good institution) in order to be considered for direct admission to postgraduate study at the University of Edinburgh.
A Bachelor degree from the University of the West Indies is considered comparable to British Bachelor degree standard.
Each course may have further specific entry requirements. All applicants must meet these requirements.
You can also obtain further guidance on admissions requirements from staff in the Admissions Offices.
There are a small number of Belizean students currently studying at the University of Edinburgh.
