    Entry requirements for Nigerian students

    We encourage Nigerian students to apply for the super priority visa (SPV) service due to the recent instability of the Nigerian Naira. The SPV service provides a fast track service for Nigerian students applying for either a visit visa or a Student Route visa. 


    To be considered for entry into our undergraduate programmes you need to hold any of the following: an Ordinary National Diploma (OND); Higher National Diploma (HND); a recognised foundation from Nigeria; successful completion of Year 1 bachelor degree from a Nigerian University.

    Applicants who have also completed the NCUK International Foundation year can also be considered.

    If you do not meet the entry requirements, you could take our International Foundation Year to gain entry onto this degree.


    Applicants should hold a 4-year bachelor degree from a reputable and recognised university from Nigeria with a minimum second class lower (2:2) degree classification.

    Applicants with a Medical degree can also be considered.  

    English requirements

    If you have a WAEC or NECO in English language with at least a C6, you shouldn't require a English test to study a bachelor's or master's degree. Students who want to study a foundation programme will require a UKVI IELTS.
