Here's all the information you need to study with us

If you’re from Nigeria and interested in studying in the UK, the University of Portsmouth is a great place to fulfil your ambitions. And if you’re ready to take the next step, we’re ready to help you get here.

On this page, you'll find information about where you can meet us in your region, what you need to do to apply for a course with us and contact details for our people in your area.

Entry requirements for students from Nigeria

If you're joining us from Nigeria, 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

If you've achieved 5 WAEC/NECO subjects (including mathematics and English language) with minimum grades of 1-6 or A-D, you'll usually need to do a foundation year before doing an undergraduate course such as a Bachelor's degree.

Our foundation courses are provided at our associated college International College Portsmouth (ICP).

Undergraduate courses

Once you've completed a foundation course, we'll consider you for admission onto an undergraduate course such as a Bachelor's degree.

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.

You must have studied relevant subjects and achieved strong grades.

Advanced Diplomas from APTECH/NCC and Informatics

If you have completed ADSE (APTECH) with credit or achieved GPA of 2.0 (NCC/Informatics), you may be considered for final year (top-up) entry onto the following courses:

  • BSc (Hons) Computing
  • BSc (Hons) Computing and Digital Image
  • BSc (Hons) Business Information Systems
  • BSc (Hons) Web Technologies
  • BSc (Hons) Computing and Society
  • BEng (Hons) Computer Networks
  • BSc (Hons) Computing and Information Systems (Distance Learning)
  • BSc (Hons) Business Information Systems (Distance Learning)

If you achieved a minimum GPA of 3.5 or above at ADSE, you can be considered for final year (top-up) entry onto the following courses:

  • BSc (Hons) Computer Science
  • BSc (Hons) Software Engineering
  • BSc (Hons) Forensic Computing

Please note: detailed transcripts must be provided

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 a Bachelor's degree from a recognised Higher Education institution:

  • 2:1 is equivalent to GPA of 3.5/5.0 (60-69%)
  • 2:2 is equivalent to GPA of 3.0/5.0 (50-59%) 

Although some courses may require a higher overall CGPA, we are also happy to consider applications with a slightly lower GPA on an individual basis.

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.

PhDs

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 a Grade C6 or above in English on the West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE), 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.
