International Students


Entry Requirements

We are happy to consider overseas applications on a case by case basis. As a general guide:


Completion of STTB-SMA (Certificate of Completion of Upper Secondary School) Level 6


A minimum of 3 A-Levels. This will be based on UCAS tariff point equivalency, including subject specific requirements where appropriate.
Or successful completion of a recognised foundation programme


We require a good Bachelor degree such as a Sarjana (S1) that is A accredited.

For entry onto our MBA International, students will also need at least 3 years relevant work experience after graduation in a managerial or supervisory capacity. Work experience is also required for several other postgraduate courses and many courses will require you to have studied relevant subjects. Please see our courses for more details.

Please note that all applications are considered individually and certain courses may accept students onto a Masters programme with a lower level degree if they have relevant work experience. Pre-masters programmes are available at ICP for a number of courses.


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 IELTS, IGCSE and several other certificates. 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.

DIKTI Scholarship Scheme

The University of Portsmouth is currently recognised by the Indonesian Ministry of Education Directorate General of Higher Education (DIKTI) as a scholarship scheme partner under which lecturers in Indonesian universities may apply for PhD programmes or Master degrees.

The DIKTI scholarship programme sponsors 150 new scholarships each year which cover full funding for the PhD (including bench fees) for up to 3 years. Scholarships for Master degrees will be for one year, or in special cases, two years. Funding will also include stipend for 3 years, with a 4th year (if necessary) to be negotiated.

We welcome candidates under the DIKTI scholarship programme, who must be permanent/prospective faculty members at an Indonesian university, or administrative staff in DIKTI or at an Indonesian state university. The scheme covers all academic disciplines, however candidates who are administrative staff must apply for courses that comply with DIKTI’s human resource strategy.

Candidates are advised to apply directly to the University of Portsmouth for consideration of a place of offer before applying to DIKTI for a scholarship. For more information, please email

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 on-line 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.
