Entry Requirements

If you don’t think you have the qualifications needed to study, please don’t worry!

If you don’t meet our entry requirements listed below, we may invite you to take our assessments and attend an interview (we don’t charge a fee for this). If you pass, we’ll be happy to admit you to the course!

If you’re unsure about any of our entry requirements or if you can study with us, we’re here to help and guide you. We also accept relevant work experience, independent study and recent courses. Please speak to us on +44 (0)20 7078 8844 or email hello@bil.ac.uk and we can discuss your options. 

We accept a range of UK and International qualifications.

For all our degrees with an integrated foundation year, we ask for five GCSEs at Grade C/4 (or equivalent), including English Language (and Mathematics, for our Accounting and Financial Management course). EU and International equivalent qualifications may also be accepted.

If you are an international student, you will need to pass a Secure English Language Test (SELT) approved by the UKVI unless you are exempt. For more details, please visit our English language requirement page.

Some of the qualifications that we accept are listed below, or you can check the specific course page for the exact requirements we’re looking for.
