Information for applicants from Nigeria.

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 successfully completed the OND or HND with a minimum GPA of 3.0 (upper credit). Alternatively we require A levels or the International Baccalaureate.

Postgraduate courses

Our online postgraduate prospectus indicates if there are any additional programme requirements.

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.

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 two 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. Please see Here for the complete list of English language tests/qualifications which Ulster University may recognise.

For Nigerian applicants, we will accept the WAEC as equivalent to the following IELTS scores for entry to Undergraduate and Postgraduate courses C6 (IELTS 6.0), C5 (IELTS 6.5) C4 (IELTS 7.0).

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.
