What are the entry requirements and what qualifications do you accept?

The entry requirements vary depending on the course you're applying for. Please see the webpage for your chosen course for details. 

International qualifications

You can see the full list of qualifications accepted for undergraduate study at Imperial required English language standard for entry 

The grades listed here are the minimum required for entry to the College and may be higher for your course of interest, due to the demanding and competitive nature of our programmes.

For more detail, please see the entry requirements on the webpage for your chosen course, where you'll also find contact details if you have further questions about the course or the entry requirements for the qualifications you're studying.

Exam resits

With the exception of our MBBS Medicine programme, candidates who have retaken exams may still be considered for entry.

However, submitting grades based on resits may be noted by our Admissions tutors. Where there are extenuating circumstances, these should be outlined in the reference which is supplied as part of your application by a teacher, adviser or professional who knows you academically.

If you choose to take exams in place of qualifications awarded via alternative methods (non-exam based awards) due to exam cancellations during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, these will not be counted or considered as resits.

GCSE grades

In assessing your academic potential, we review all the material information available to us from your UCAS application.

However, our entry requirements are based on A-level or equivalent level qualifications.

The only GCSE grade that we may consider with respect to entry requirements is your English language grade if you are using the results of this qualification to show that you meet our required English language standard for entry, or a relevant modern foreign language for courses with a year abroad.
