Entry Requirements

Thai students from the 12-year education system are normally required to complete a foundation year before entering an undergraduate programme at Loughborough University.

The normal entrance requirements for Thai students from the 13-year education system for A-levels can be found in our prospectus. The University also accepts International Baccalaureate, BTEC and HND. Applicants with an HND qualification may be considered for entry into Year 2 of an appropriate degree programme.

Foundation programmes are available for those who do not fully meet our normal entry requirements.

Candidates must also achieve the University's English language requirements.  For most courses international students are expected to achieve IELTS 6.5.

Normally a GPA of at least 3.0 from a Thai university or a good second class honours degree from a UK university would be expected. Applicants with other professional qualifications or an advanced diploma and appropriate work experience may also be considered. Potential applicants should see the Postgraduate Prospectus for further details of appropriate subject requirements and any acceptable alternative entry requirements. Some schools may accept concessions from higher ranking institutions. Please contact the International Office for more information.

A good Bachelor degree or a Masters degree in a relevant subject from a recognised university of appropriate standing will normally be required.

Candidates must also achieve the University's English language requirements.  For most courses international students are expected to achieve IELTS 6.5.

Pre-sessional English Language tuition is available for those applicants whose scores in English Language fall slightly below that normally expected for entry. This is offered as a 5, 10, 20 or 30 week course depending on the level of English obtained. See our English Language Support Service for more information.
