Entry Requirements for Taiwanese Students

The Senior High School Diploma, which a Taiwanese school pupil normally completes in Year 12, does not qualify the student for direct entry to the first year of an undergraduate programme at Loughborough University. An overall average of 80% for the Diploma should allow the student to enter an approved University Foundation programme. Junior College Diploma holders may be considered for entry to undergraduate courses and, in cases where the syllabus studied is compatible with the University’s, year two entry may be possible. Students with A levels, International Baccalaureate or BTech are advised to refer to the Undergraduate Prospectus for the details of grades required for entry to individual courses.

Students who have graduated in a relevant subject with a good Bachelor degree, i.e. the equivalent of an upper second class British Honours degree are welcome to apply for our postgraduate courses. The University accepts the degrees awarded by Taiwan’s national universities and other prestigious higher education institutions, government and private, as being of the required standard, provided that a GPA of approximately 80% has been achieved. For entry to a research degree, the prerequisite is normally the possession of highly graded Bachelor and Masters degrees. Potential applicants should refer to the Postgraduate Prospectus for detailed information about the entry requirements for individual courses, including the need in some cases for students to have had relevant working experience.

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 Support Service for more information. However, certain schools do not accept students attending Pre-sessional English course so please refer to our English Language Requirements section for details.
