International Students



Our International Officers travel to Myanmar regularly 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!

See our upcoming events below, or check our events page for full listings. 

Entry Requirements

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


Pass the Matriculation Examination


Successful completion of a recognised foundation programme


You would need to have successfully completed a Bachelor's Degree programme of at least five years. Each application will be considered on a case-by-case basis.

Work experience is 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 Master's 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 Master's 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.
