Undergraduate entry requirements for applicants from China.
Senior High School Certificate
Applicants who have completed the Chinese Senior High School Certificate are required to undertake further study for entry to most subjects as this qualification does not normally meet our minimum entry requirements.
We accept the following qualifications for direct entry to our undergraduate degree programmes:
Applicants with qualifications other than those listed above will usually be required to complete a Foundation Year before entering the University.
College of Science and Engineering
For degree programmes in Science and Engineering, applicants who have completed a year of study at a leading Chinese University may be eligible to apply.
The College will also give consideration to applicants who have achieved excellent results in the Chinese National University Entrance Examination (Gaokao) on an individual basis.
Applicants from PR China are welcome to apply with the assistance of the Ambright Education Group. Ambright applicants will be required to take written, subject-dependent Aptitude Scholastic Tests in Mathematics, Physics and English at centres in China.
Further guidance on academic entry requirements
Each course may have further specific entry requirements. All applicants must meet these requirements. Staff in the Admissions Offices will be able to provide further guidance.
English Language requirements
All applicants are required to demonstrate a level of English language competency, regardless of their nationality or country of residence. These requirements are listed by programme.
Edinburgh Global’s representative for China is Esther Sum.
