Entry requirements for students from Sri Lanka

If you are a student from Sri Lanka who would like to study here at Loughborough University, please take a look at the entry requirements listed below to see what is needed.


Sri Lanka

Students with A Level or IB qualifications will be considered for direct entry to undergraduate degree courses. Please see the undergraduate prospectus for specific course requirements.

Sri Lankan A Levels are considered comparable to the typical A Level requirements. However, as an A* grade cannot be achieved in Sri Lankan A Levels, an A grade is acceptable to meet this requirement where applicable.

All students must also achieve the University’s English language requirements.


A Bachelor Special or a Professional degree in a relevant subject from a recognised university, a postgraduate institute or another higher education institute, or a Masters degree in the same or a related field of study, will normally be required. Overall grades of A or B (First Class or Upper Second Class Honours) should have been achieved. For research study a Masters qualification is usually needed. Potential applicants should see the Postgraduate pages for further details of appropriate subject requirements and any acceptable alternative entry requirements.

English language requirements

Candidates must also achieve the University's English language requirements.

Pre-sessional English Language tuition is available for those applicants whose scores in English Language fall slightly below that normally expected for entry. See our English Language Study Unit for more information.
