The University welcomes applications from qualified students from China.

Students who have completed the Chinese Senior High School Certificate are required to undertake further study for entry as this qualification does not meet our minimum entry requirements.

Students will be required to complete an appropriate Foundation Programme, such as the University of Edinburgh International Foundation Programme.

Applicants who have taken the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma, A levels, CanadianĀ or US qualifications (SAT and AP), may apply directly for undergraduate study. Further information regarding the entry requirements for each subject can be found in the Undergraduate degree finder.

Please note that some of our programmes are competitive, particularly those in the Business School, and so we may need to use additional selection criteria.
