Entry requirements for Indian students

This is a guide to the normal entry requirements, assuming you’ve followed the Indian education system. An admissions tutor will study your application, so make sure you include your academic background and personal information when you apply.

Entry requirements vary depending on what sort of course you’re coming to BU to study.

  • BU International College Foundation Certificates
    You can undertake a Foundation Certificate before going on to an undergraduate course if you have successfully completed 12 years of schooling in India and achieved a minimum of IELTS (Academic) 5.0.
  • Undergraduate courses
    You can apply to study a Bachelor's degree from year one if you hold a Higher Secondary School Certificate/Standard XII and have achieved an average percentage of at least 65% (although some courses will require this to be higher).
  • Postgraduate courses
    You need to have an Indian Bachelor's (Honours) degree from a recognised higher education institution in a relevant subject and to have met the minimum required grades.
