Ulster University is proud to be one of those universities in the UK selected to participate in the prestigious Ciência sem Fronteiras scheme, backed by CAPES and CNPq.

Undergraduate courses

Each course will have slightly different requirements, both in terms of overall points and certain subjects, so please check the relevant subject in the Undergraduate on-line prospectus.

If you have completed your High School studies at a Brazilian school you will normally need to complete a Foundation course before you can be admitted to an undergraduate. Alternatively the International Baccalaureate, A Levels accepted.

Postgraduate courses

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 good grade.

Our on-line postgraduate prospectus indicates if there are any additional programme requirements. 

The Bacharel/Licenciado/Licenciatura is deemed equivalent to a UK Bachelors degree. A score of 7.5 or 75 from a well ranked public institution is considered comparable to a UK 2.1, while a score of 6.5 or 65 is considered comparable to a UK 2.2. For other grading systems, please contact the International Office.

English Language Entry Requirements

To study at Ulster University, you need good English, and we will need to see recent evidence of this (certified within the last 2 years).

Most of our courses require a minimum English level of IELTS 6.0 or equivalent, with no band score under 5.5. Trinity ISE: Pass at level III also meets this requirement.

Some courses have higher language prerequisites – please check entry requirements on the relevant course webpage.

You may be asked for a Secure English Language Test (SELT) certificate: IELTS or Trinity Integrated Skills in English (ISE), or you may hold other English language qualifications that we can recognise.

Our Centre for English Language Teaching (CELT) offers a range of English language courses, which are designed to prepare international students with the necessary language skills for academic study at Ulster University.
