Applying from Taiwan?

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

If you’re from Taiwan 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 Taiwan

If you're joining us from Taiwan, 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 Senior High School Certificate we'll consider you for admission onto an undergraduate course such as a bachelor's degree via the International College Portsmouth's Stage 2 or Foundation programme. 

Advanced entry requirement

For consideration for advanced entry requirements (Year 2 entry) to an undergraduate programme, you'll need a Junior College Diploma with appropriate grades. For more details, please contact one of our local representatives or email seao@port.ac.uk.

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.

If you have attended a prestigious junior college, you may be considered for advanced entry onto a relevant undergraduate programme. If you have a diploma with a good GPA from a technical college or polytechnic institute, you will be eligible for entry to either Year 1 or Year 2.

You may also 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 with a good GPA from a recognised Higher Education institution.

Typical minimum Grade Point Average (GPA) requirements:

  • From 2.8 on a scale of 14
  • From 7 on a scale of 110

Applications from students with a good GPA from private universities will be considered on a case by case 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.


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.
