NB! Entry requirements do vary at the UK universities that have appointed Across the Pond to represent them in the US – please see below the minimum entry requirements
Study Abroad Programs
Semester or study abroad candidates must be registered as full time students at an accredited US university or College. The normal entry requirement for US visiting students is a GPA in the region of 2.5 or higher, supported by an academic transcript and references.
Undergraduate UK Courses
US students holding a High School Graduation Diploma with a minimum GPA of around 2.5 (lower may be acceptable in certain circumstances) and satisfactory SAT or ACT results are accepted to study in the UK. For some subjects at few of the best British universities, such as science and language studies you may be required to have taken one or several relevant Advanced Placement Tests. Applicants that wish to study such subjects without AP’s can also be considered for one-year preparatory/foundation courses (making it a four year program). Across the Pond UK study experts will offer you guidance and help you plan your applications to account for not having APs. Demonstrable equivalents to APs may also be accepted and we can help demonstrate conversions/similarities or explain to our partner UK universities why you were unable to take APs. Students holding the International Baccalaureate diploma will be considered for direct entry to a 3-year Bachelor degree.
Graduate Programs in the UK
Students who have acquired a Bachelor's degree, from an accredited institution, with good grade point average, usually 2.5 or higher (however this is not always applicable), will be considered for graduate programs in Britain. This will typically be a graduate diploma (9 months), taught (12 months) or research led Master's degree. The research based master's degree is normally 12-24 months in length and is focused on a major research project and not around classroom based teaching. If you are interested in getting a PhD degree, this is another option worth exploring further. Please contact Across the Pond study experts, for more details!
Master's degree holders will be considered for Ph.D. programs.
