Postgraduate entry requirements by region

Colombia

Postgraduate entry requirements for students from Colombia.

You must have a very good Bachelor degree (from a good institution) in order to be considered for direct admission to postgraduate study at the University of Edinburgh.

In order to apply for a Master's degree, you should have completed at least 4 years of study, and obtained a Licenciatura or Título with a minimum overall mark (promedio) of 80% (8/10 or 3.8-4.0/5.0). If you have obtained less than 80% and can demonstrate that you were ranked in the top 1/5th of your graduating class and that you went to a top Colombian higher education institution, we may consider your application.

PhD Programmes

Application to PhD study typically requires a masters degree in a related or relevant subject, and a research proposal.

However, entry requirements vary by programme, and you should check the detailed entry requirements are listed under each programme on the Degree Finder.
