Entry Requirements for students from Singapore

If you are a student from Singapore who wants to study here at Loughborough University, please take a look at the entry requirements below.



For students with Singapore A Levels, typical offers normally range from BBC to AAA from three H2 Level subjects and offers are typically one grade lower than the typical A Level requirement as stated in the undergraduate prospectus due to the comparative difficulty.

Where courses have specific subject requirements, an ‘A’ or ‘B’ grade would normally be required in line with UK A Level requirements.

Students with a Diploma from one of Singapore’s five Polytechnics would be considered for first year entry with requirements ranging from 2.50 to 3.10. Second year entry may be considered in some cases. Please contact the International Office to check if this is applicable.

For IB requirements please see the undergraduate prospectus.

English language studied within one of the above qualifications is normally sufficient to meet the university’s minimum entry requirements. Please see the Approved Qualifications table for further details.


Applications from students who have graduated with a good degree in an appropriate subject from any recognised university of appropriate standing will be considered. Normally a good second class honours degree from a university in Singapore, the UK or Australia 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.

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

Applicants for a postgraduate Research degree will not only be expected to meet the entry requirements for postgraduate study but are also expected to provide a research proposal as part of their application.

Candidates must also achieve the University's English language requirements. In brief international students are expected to achieve IELTS 6.5 with 6.0 in each band.

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 Academic Language Support Service for more information.
