Our typical entry requirement is:
For all programmes we require at least grade C in GCSE English Language, or equivalent.
If you do not meet the requirements for our BSc programmes, an alternative route (to any BSc programme except GL11) is via our Science and Engineering Foundation Programme (Maths stream, course code GGX1). This may be suited either to applicants who did not achieve their expected results at A-Level, or to those who have not studied Mathematics to a sufficient level for BSc entry. As a guide, we would usually make offers for A-Level applicants at BBC, including a C in Mathematics. In exceptional circumstances (such as excellent grades in other relevant subjects) we may make offers to applicants who have not completed a full A-Level in Mathematics. Applications from mature students will be considered on an individual basis, taking account of both educational background and other relevant experience.
We are also happy to accept applicants via our International Science and Engineering Foundation Programme (ISEFP), for which you apply directly to the ISEFP team.
We encourage applications from students with other comparable qualifications, including students from abroad, mature students and students attending appropriate Access or Higher Education Foundation courses; see also the general Queen Mary entry requirements, especially for qualifications other than GCE A-Levels.

*Offers will also include a minimum English language requirement, as outlined below.
For any of our degree programmes we require one of the following as a minimum:
For the SEFP we normally require at least IELTS 5.0 or equivalent. But please note this important information for applicants applying for Tier 4 immigration permission.
IELTS must have been taken within the last two years. (It will help us confirm your place if we receive your results by 31 July and we must receive your results by 31 August.)
Further information, including alternative English language tests and equivalent scores is available on the international students section of the QMUL website.
We will consider direct entry into the second year of our courses, and occasionally to the third year of our MSci courses, but not to the final year of any course. You need to apply through UCAS in the same way as for first-year entry. We will also require the course you have followed at your current institution to match ours reasonably closely and we will ask you to provide detailed syllabus information to establish this after you have applied.
