Entry requirements for students from Croatia

If you're joining us from Croatia, the entry requirements you need to meet will depend on the course you want to study.

We consider all applications we receive. However, to make sure you get the most out of your time studying with us and have the best chance of applying successfully, we recommend the following minimum qualifications:

Undergraduate courses

If you've completed the Svjedodžba o Maturi, we'll consider you for admission onto an undergraduate course such as a Bachelor's degree. You must have studied relevant subjects and achieved strong grades (a score of 3.8 in the Svjedodžba o Maturi).

If you don't have a Svjedodžba o Maturi, you can apply with:

A levels

  • Please check your specific course page to find the exact number of points needed. Your A level grades should equal or exceed the total points required. You can use the UCAS Tariff Calculator to work out your total points.
  • Some courses will require you to have studied specific subjects at A level. For example, to study a science course you will usually need to have achieved passing grades in scientific subjects at A level.
  • A level points: A* = 56 A = 48 B = 40 C = 32 D = 24.

International Baccalaureate

  • Most courses will require between 24 and 31 points in the International Baccalaureate (IB), depending on the degree you apply for.

If you have a High National Diploma (HND) or Higher Diploma you can apply for advanced entry onto a relevant undergraduate programme.

You may be able to join an undergraduate course with other qualifications. We do consider qualifications from a range of sources. Contact us to find out more.

If you don't meet the undergraduate entry requirements, you can do a foundation or first year degree programme at International College Portsmouth (ICP) for many of our courses.

Postgraduate courses

For entry to our postgraduate Master's programmes, you'll usually need to have a Bachelor's degree (Baccalaureus/Baccalaurea) from a recognised Higher Education institution, with a score in the range of 4-3, depending on your chosen course.

For entry onto our MBA programme, you will also need at least 3 years' relevant work experience after graduation, in a managerial or supervisory role. Many of our other postgraduate courses will ask for relevant work experience, and for some you will need to have studied relevant subjects. Please see our courses for more details.

If you don't meet the undergraduate entry requirements, you can do a foundation or first year degree programme at International College Portsmouth (ICP) for many of our courses.


We'll consider you for a PhD if you have a good Master’s degree and submit a research proposal.

English language requirements

When you join us, it’s important that you can speak and understand English to the level that your course requires. The specific English language requirements will be on your chosen course page.

We accept IELTS, IGCSE and several other certificates, but don’t worry if you're currently short of the standard required – we offer English Language Programmes that will get you to the necessary level.

We accept English from the Svjedodžba o Maturi. You will need to achieve a minimum score of 4 out of 5 in Foreign language (English) at Higher Level (equivalent to IELTS 6.0), although this will vary depending on your chosen course.

You can find information about the tuition fees you’ll need to pay and the EU Scholarship for students joining us in 2023/24 and beyond on the Tuition fees for EU students page.
