Entry requirements for students from Morocco

If you're joining us from Morocco, 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:

Foundation courses

You'll usually need to do a foundation year before doing an undergraduate course such as a Bachelor's degree if when a 15/20 GPA with relevant subjects is not met. We recommend you take a foundation course at our associated college International College Portsmouth (ICP).

Undergraduate courses

If you've completed the Moroccan Baccalaureat with a GPA of 15 or above, 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.

You can also 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.

Postgraduate courses

For entry to our postgraduate Master's programmes, you'll usually need to have one of the following from a recognised Higher Education institution:

  • a Bachelor's degree with honours
  • a Licence with good grades

Typical minimum requirements are:

  • 65% or above
  • Grade Point Average (GPA) 2.8/4 or above or
  • 12/20 or above

For entry onto our MBA International, 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 some will require you to have studied relevant subjects. Please see our courses for more details.

If you don't meet the postgraduate entry requirements, you can do a pre-Master's programme at International College Portsmouth (ICP). for many of our courses.
