  • 1 year in a recognised Thai tertiary-level 4-year Bachelors programme (1st year in degree) - CGPA 2.5 or above
  • Associate Degree (completed within a university-sector institution)

  • a recognised foundation qualification

If you’re applying for a postgraduate taught course you must hold one of the following:

  • 4-year Bachelors or Professional Bachelors (in a discipline relevant to the subject area) with CGPA 2.5 - 2.6

English requirements

English language requirements

If English is not your first language you'll need to be able to show you have the required level of English language. This is so we can ensure you'll be able to follow your course.

  • Our standard entry criteria for undergraduate courses is IELTS 6.0 or equivalent, with nothing lower than 5.5 in any of the four elements (listening, speaking, reading and writing).
  • Our standard entry criteria for postgraduate taught and postgraduate research courses is IELTS 6.5, with nothing lower than 5.5 in any of the four elements (listening, speaking, reading and writing).

If you don't meet our English language requirements, our Language Centre offers a range of courses which could help you achieve the level required for entry onto a degree course.

Our Language Centre also offers the English Language Proficiency Test (ELPT) in the UK and overseas. Check our events page for dates or contact our country managers for more information.
