For first-degree programmes, an applicant will be required to meet the normal university entry requirements with form qualifications, in addition to our entrance tests and interviews. For pursuing foundation degree programmes, applicants for admission to foundation degree programmes must be at least 18 years of age but are not required to satisfy the general entry requirements for first degrees. Foundation degrees are designed specifically for students with no formal entry requirements. Each transfer student application is considered on its merits, with the air of creating a coherently structured degree programme and is required to complete a minimum of two years of part-time study with the college including the final year, before graduating with a University of London degree.
Any applicant is living in London on a student or visitorís visa, will not be eligible to enrol as a part-time student at Birkbeck.
