International qualifications

Qualification requirements

In order to take up the offer of a place to study here, all applicants must meet the qualification requirements of their course. Many students who apply to Oxford are taking A-levels but we also accept a whole range of other equivalent UK and international qualifications.

If you are an international student wanting to apply to Oxford, you need to have achieved - or be expected to achieve - one of the qualifications listed on this page.?There are also specific subject requirements for some courses, particularly in the sciences, so please?check the requirements for your course.

Transcripts and declaring international qualifications in your UCAS application?

Please do not submit any transcripts or certificates with your application to Oxford, and if you have US qualifications, do not send any scores via the College Board.

You will only need to produce certificates or transcripts if you are offered a place here.?

You should self-report all details of your qualifications, standardised test scores, and grades on the UCAS application form under Education. Please visit the UCAS application section of our Guide for applicants for further details.?

It is however very important that the teacher writing your reference gives predicted grades for the exams that you are yet to take. Your referee can find advice on our?teachers pages.?

What to do if your qualification is not accepted or is not listed

If your qualification is not accepted, then you will need to undertake further study if you wish to apply. You can take any of the qualifications which are listed as acceptable on this page as well as our accepted UK qualifications.

Taking one of these accepted qualifications will help you make the most competitive application, rather than seeking to qualify through attending the first year of university elsewhere.

If you cannot find your country on this list then this means the school-leaving qualifications from your country do not currently meet Oxfords admissions requirements. We continuously review the qualifications we accept so please contact us and we will be able to advise you on the process. You should be aware that this process can take up to a year.

Transfers and applying while studying at an international university

Applying to transfer whilst on an undergraduate course at another university

Oxford University does not accept transfer students. If you wish to follow an undergraduate course here, then you would need to start the course from the beginning. However, this option is not available if you are currently enrolled on a Medicine course elsewhere and wish to apply to study at Oxford.?

Applying to start the first year of an Oxford undergraduate course whilst at university outside the UK

If you are currently studying at a university outside the UK and are thinking of applying to Oxford to start the first year of an undergraduate course, you should make very clear in your application why you do not wish to continue on your current course. This is important as we only consider such applications where there are strong reasons for moving university after the first year. Please note we are not able to give examples of these reasons as applications will be considered on a case-by-case basis. ?

If you do decide to apply whilst at another university and you do not have A-level or equivalent qualifications at the grades required for the standard offer for the course you are interested in applying for, you will need to demonstrate how your subsequent?study has prepared you for studying at Oxford, including any evidence of your performance on your current course and a reference from your current tutor or equivalent.

Please note that you must declare on your UCAS form whether you are currently studying at another university, and that failure to do so could result in Oxford withdrawing any offer made to you.?

Mature students' qualifications and second degrees

Mature students qualifications

We are aware that students, particularly?mature students, may hold qualifications which are no longer available or where grading systems have changed. These qualifications will be assessed on a case by case basis by the college considering your application.

Applying as a graduate for a second undergraduate degree

Please refer to our?Second Undergraduate Degree?webpage. You may be able to apply for Senior Status, which would mean you can start directly in the second year of the degree.

Vocational and Technical qualifications

Because of the academic nature of the undergraduate courses at Oxford, vocational and technical qualifications may not provide the most suitable preparation. Candidates with vocational or technical qualifications are welcome to apply, although it may be necessary to take additional academic qualifications to make a competitive application.

If you would like to discuss whether your application is suitable for entry to Oxford University, please contact the subject department that you'd like to apply to for further information.

When considering applications, tutors would want to see evidence of learning and assessment that would provide the skills and knowledge the candidate would need for the course they are applying for. Candidates are therefore advised to include in their UCAS personal statement information on how their qualification has prepared them for the course they are applying to.?

International cross-border qualifications

International Baccalaureate

A total score of 38, 39 or 40 points (depending on the course) including core points, with 6s and 7s in subjects taken at the Higher level. Please visit the individual course pages for details.

IB Maths?

IB students can choose from:

  • Analysis and Approaches (SL or HL)
  • Applications and Interpretation (SL or HL)

All Oxford courses that state that they require Mathematics will accept both courses at HL, apart from Chemistry, which will require applicants to have taken either of the courses at Higher Level,?or?the Analysis and Approaches course at SL, depending on what other subjects they are taking.?Please visit the Chemistry course page for further information.

If courses state that they recommend Mathematics, either course will be acceptable.

IB Career-related Programme

The University does not accept the IB Career-related Programme.?

European Baccalaureate

An average of 85% or above, with scores of between 8 and 9 in subjects specified at A-level or equivalent. Visit your course page or our admission requirements table for further information about specified subjects.

International A-levels

International A-levels (offered by Cambridge Assessment International Education, Pearson Edexcel and Oxford AQA) are recognised as equivalent to UK GCE A-levels on a grade-for-grade basis.

The University does not accept the Cambridge Assessment International Education A-levels in either Global Perspectives or Research and Thinking Skills.

Where applicants have undertaken the OxfordAQA International Project Qualification (IPQ), this will not be a condition of any offer but the University recognises that the IPQ will provide an applicant with the opportunity to develop research and academic skills relevant for study at Oxford. Candidates are encouraged to draw upon relevant IPQ experience when writing their personal statement.

MOOCs

The University does not accept MOOCs as qualifications on which to base an application, as the majority of MOOCs are not accredited. However, MOOCs can be used as part of a candidates wider learning and discussed in their personal statement, if relevant to the proposed course of study.

Foundation year courses

Competition is very strong for places at Oxford. Although a foundation year course may be accepted in certain circumstances, we recommend taking different qualifications in order to make the strongest application. This is especially true if your chosen course has specific subject requirements. You can check these requirements on the?course page.

For a foundation year course to be accepted, you would need to make sure that the course covers the same content as any required A-levels to the appropriate standard. If it does not, you will need to take alternative qualifications.

If you would like further advice regarding your particular circumstances, please contact the relevant department. Contact details can be found on the?course pages.

Superscoring

Please note that to meet the requirements of an offer to the University, your SAT Total Score for the SAT Evidence-based Reading and Writing, and SAT Math sections must be from the same session; we will not consider scores from multiple sessions ('superscoring'). ?This also applies to scores for the ACT, so we will only consider the Highest Full Battery score, and not the ACT Superscore.

Candidates are asked to enter all their scores for any tests taken when they complete their UCAS application, showing the relevant dates for each. This gives tutors a complete picture of a candidate's academic record, rather than just the superscore of best results for the different sections of any test taken on multiple occasions.

Candidates are also asked to include any pending test scores on the UCAS application: that is, details of any test they intend to take up until the end of Senior Year. Again, this is to give tutors a complete picture of the candidates academic record, including studies which are still in progress.

AP Capstone Programme

Where applicants have undertaken the additional AP qualifications making up the AP Capstone Diploma (AP Seminar and AP Research) these will not be a condition of any offer. However, the University recognises that they may provide an applicant with the opportunity to develop research and academic skills relevant for higher education. Where relevant, candidates may draw upon relevant subject understanding and interest explored via the AP Capstone Diploma when writing their personal statement.?

Score cancellation/withdrawal

We are aware that students taking APs can apply to College Board to have their scores cancelled or withdrawn. However, it is a requirement of the UCAS application process for students to declare all results, including any that have been cancelled or withdrawn, so that tutors are able to consider students' full educational profile. Failure to declare all qualifications could result in Oxford withdrawing any offer made to you.?
