Entry requirements

    We're currently confirming our 2018 undergraduate entry requirements and will publish them soon.

    In the meantime, please get in touch by emailing global@hull.ac.uk or call +44 (0)1482 462190.

  • Postgraduate Taught

    The majority of our taught Masters programmes require that you hold a qualification equivalent to a lower second-class Bachelor Honours (or 2.2). Please check our course pages for specific entry requirements.

    We generally consider Bakalaura Diploms or Profesionālā Bakalaura Diploms awarded by a nationally recognised higher education institution in Latvia post 2002 or Magitra Diploms awarded up to and including year 2000 to be comparable to a UK Bachelor Honours degree.

    Overall grade 6.0 out of 10

    Upper second-class (2.1) equivalent
    Overall grade 7.0 out of 10

Latvia - Margarita Blazevica

"There are many things I have really enjoyed during my BSc, for example, friendly and approachable members of staff, the campus (no need to travel to another side of the city for a lecture and then come back for another one), most of the student houses are very close to the University and the cost of living is so much cheaper than in other cities across the country!

"Don’t forget about your social life and other interests! Hull University students’ union has loads to offer: each year starts with a fresher’s week with a fantastic line-up of events to meet new friends, and ends with the end of year ball (definitely worth going!). Besides, there is a long list of societies you can join and a wide range of volunteering opportunities."
