Entry requirements

A guide to our academic and English language entry requirements.

Academic requirements

To study at postgraduate level, you need to hold an undergraduate degree, with an excellent or very good classification (equivalent to first or upper second class honours in the UK).

Some non-UK applicants who are applying for a PhD will also require a Masters degree.

Please check the entry requirements by country. If your degree is not from a UK university, please consult our Edinburgh Global guide - see related links below.
