Information for applicants from Brunei Darussalam
We accept a wide range of international qualifications. These are assessed individually for their content and level, and against relevant guidelines such as the British Council and the National Academic Recognition Information Centre for the United Kingdom (NARIC UK). The minimum required to be considered for entry to our undergraduate programmes is the equivalent of three A-levels at CCC. However, some programmes will require higher grades and particular subjects. Please refer to the specific entry requirements for your chosen programme of study as outlined in the online prospectus.
The Brunei-Cambridge General Certificate of Education Advanced Levels (GCE A Levels) are comparable in terms of grading and equivalence to UK A-Levels.
Typically we require applicants for taught Masters programmes (MA, MSc, MRes, MBA, MPA, LLM) to hold a Bachelors degree (usually in a relevant subject) with a grade equivalent to a UK upper second class honours.
If you have an undergraduate honours degree in Brunei and have obtained a good result, you can be considered for entry onto postgraduate programmes.
