We have two members of staff based in New Delhi to help Indian applicants, Chanchaljeet Beasley, India Regional Adviser and Jaspreet Kaur, India Administrative Officer.
Their role is to support our large network of local representatives in India and develop new links with partners and businesses.
They can also assist students with all aspects of the admissions process. This includes giving advice on how to apply, required documentation and assisting with visa regulations. You can contact both at:

TB Clearance Certificate
Since 1 November 2012, Indian students planning to study in the UK need to obtain a TB Clearance Certificate before they can apply for the Tier 4 Student Visa. We recommend that students obtain these as soon as possible to avoid delays with the visa application process.
TB Clearance Certificates are issued by UKVI-approved clinics.
We are happy to consider overseas applications on a case by case basis. As a general guide:
To be considered for an undergraduate degree, you must have achieved an average of 75% or above in the 12 Standard (State Board) examinations or 70% in the Central Board.
A-Levels and International Baccalaureate are also accepted.
Applicants with a good Higher National Diploma (HND) may be considered for advanced entry onto a relevant undergraduate programme.
Applicants who have progressed from 10th Standard to recognised three year diplomas may be considered for entry to the second year of relevant programmes if they achieve 60% or above during their diploma studies. IELTS or equivalent will also be required. Please see our courses for more details.
Applicants should hold a good Bachelor Degree from a recognised University with second class or above. Some courses require a higher overall CGPA.
Students holding a good Masters Degree will be considered for PhD study upon submission of a research proposal. Please visit our Graduate School pages for information on specific areas of research.
English Language requirements:
We accept 75% or above from English at year 12 level for all our courses. If you have a lower level then we also accept IELTS, Pearson and TOEFL and the required score will depend on your level of entry and your chosen course. Please visit English language requirements for more details. We offer Pre-sessional English language programmes for applicants who do not yet meet the required English level for entry onto our degree courses.
International Alumni Referral Awards
We know that the best promotion is 'word of mouth'. We also know that if students have a good experience at Portsmouth, they will tell their friends, family and colleagues - and sometimes, as a result, one of those people decides to come and study at the University of Portsmouth. We want to formally recognise this assistance in recommending that person to the University of Portsmouth.
The International Alumni Referral Award (IARA) scheme is for current and former University of Portsmouth students who refer an applicant to study here. We reward the current/former student with £400 if their application results in a registration.
How does the scheme work?
Please use the following form:
Please download and complete the International Alumni Referral Award Form above. You must ensure that the International Alumni Referral Award Form is attached to the online application when it is submitted. When you are submitting the online application, please select IARA from the agent drop-down menu and attach a copy of the completed IARA Form with the 'Supported Documents Area'.
Please note: we cannot link the application to you after we have received the application and it has been input into the University's Admissions System.
If you have any questions about this scheme, please email us.
Indian Student Experience
"There’s a perfect balance between study and fun here, that's what the University of Portsmouth provides; that and fantastic student support. The city itself is shaped by the Royal Navy and the University. University students are the heartbeat of the city, being in Portsmouth all year around I’ve seen the rhythm of that heartbeat - the one which syncs with academic time.
The city is filled with history and culture. A short walk around the city and you’ll see various landmarks including the birthplace of iconic personalities like John Pounds (the man most responsible for the creation of the concept of Ragged schools) and Charles Dickens - an English writer and social critic."
