PassPort Bursary

Students from Jordan are eligible to receive our PassPort Bursary. The PassPort Bursary gives privately-funded students a 10% tuition fee reduction for their first year of study at Portsmouth. 

It applies to all degree courses with fees of £13,200 or above for 2018 entry. Email for further details.

Entry Requirements

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


Successfully pass General Secondary School Certificate (60% or higher).

We offer foundation programmes at our partner college, International College Portsmouth (ICP)


Successfully pass a recognised foundation programme.

A-levels and the International Baccalaureate are also accepted. Students with a Higher National Diploma (HND) or a Higher Diploma can be considered for advanced entry onto a relevant undergraduate degree programme.


You will require a Bachelors degree from a recognised university in Jordan. Exact requirements will depend on the course you are applying for, but as a guide, we would look for a GPA above 2.6 / 65%

Students with a lower GPA will require a Pre-Masters course, delivered by our partner college on campus, International College Portsmouth (ICP) (full contact details above).

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.


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.


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.


Our International Officers occasionally travel to Jordan for Education Fairs, visits to agents and other events. These are great opportunities to speak to us about applying to study at the University of Portsmouth and it would be great to meet you there!

Jordanian Student Experience

"The University of Portsmouth is a prestigious university with experienced teaching staff, I learn first-hand from professionals with experience in the industry how to implement theory into practice.

It was a new perspective and a challenging experience when I decided to study Masters in Mechanical Engineering, expanding my engineering skills and enhancing my analytical skills.

The university offers support in academic and non-academic fields, career guidance and housing. Access to academic talks and training is also provided for free."
