International qualifications

The University offers general guidance on the types of qualifications and grades from countries outside the UK that would usually be considered to meet its minimum entry requirements.

You should also make sure that you meet the entry requirements for the specific course you are applying to, as specified on each course page. Academic departments may use other sources of information on grading standards, eg within your specific subject area, in setting both entry requirements and offer conditions for individual courses.

How to use this guidance

This guidance is intended as a source of information to help you decide whether your qualifications are likely to offer a suitable background for applying to a graduate course at Oxford, alongside the entry requirements for your specific course.

This overview information is offered for the countries from which the University receives a high number of applications and/or queries and does not cover every type of qualification and grading scale which may be considered an acceptable basis for a competitive application to Oxford. There can also be significant complexity and variability within any national system of higher education which can affect how a particular grade is considered, eg differences in grading between institutions.

Please note that admissions to Oxford are very competitive and that meeting the minimum entry requirements will not guarantee an offer of a place.

The academic department will review your application on the basis of the materials you provide and in relation to other applications to the course.
