International Students



Our International Officers travel to Thailand 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:


Completion of Matayom 5 with a minimum GPA of 3.0


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 generally require a Bachelor degree with a good GPA. Each application will be considered on a case-by-case basis.

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.
