Postgraduate entry requirements by region


Postgraduate entry requirements for students from Peru.

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 at a good institution, and obtained a Licenciatura or Título Profesional with a minimum of 14.0+ (20 point scale) in their licenciatura/título. 

If you achieve lower than 14/20 but are in the top 1/5th or higher in your graduating year from a good Peruvian higher education institution, you can look to apply. 

PhD Programmes
