United Arab Emirates

Information for applicants from United Arab Emirates and Ulster University's agent network.

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.

Applicants offering the Thenawiya/Tawjahiya (Secondary School Leaving Certificate) will normally require a foundation course for entry onto undergraduate degree programmes at the University.

Alternatively, students who have completed the first year of a degree programme in the UAE following the Thenawiya may be considered for direct undergraduate entry.

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 grade equivalent to a UK upper second class honours.

A 4-year bachelors degree with a GPA of 3.0-3.49 out of 4.0 (3.5/5) from a well ranked university is considered comparable to a UK 2.1, while a score of 2.60-2.99 is considered comparable to a UK 2.2.

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.
