Information for applicants from Vietnam 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.

We typically require you to have recognised foundation course for entry onto undergraduate degree programmes at the University. Alternatively we require A levels or the IB.

Postgraduate courses

Typically we require applicants for taught master's programmes (MA, MSc, MRes, MBA, MPA, LLM) to hold a bachelor's degree (usually in a relevant subject) with a grade equivalent to a UK upper second class honours.

A bachelor's degree (Bang tot nghiep dai hoc) from a recognised Vietnamese university is sufficient for postgraduate entry. A GPA of at least 7.00 or "good - Kha" from a recognised Vietnamese institution is normally required.

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.
