    International entry requirements

    You can find academic and English entry requirements for international applications by visiting the Entry Requirements page.

    Your offer

    Candidates receive either an unconditional offer or a conditional offer. Learn more about the different types of offers in the section What your offer means below. If you have applied directly, you can email the International Office to notify us of your decision. On UCAS, you can use UCAS Track to accept your offer.

    Once you have accepted your offer, you will be eligible to apply for housing. We will also send you visa guidance and more information to help you prepare for your move to the UK.

    What your offer means

    Candidates receive either an unconditional offer or a conditional offer.

    An unconditional offer is made when an applicant has met all our entry requirements (normally, these are students who have completed their studies when they apply).

    Conditional offers are more common. They are offered when applicants must meet certain conditions before the University can confirm their place of study. This place is held for students, allowing them time to complete their studies or obtain the necessary language qualification.

    If you apply to more than one institution through UCAS, you’ll be asked to choose which university you want to attend by a specific deadline.

    When you choose a university you have to accept their offer. This is when you firm your offer. If you choose not to accept an offer, you should formally decline it on the UCAS website.

    The university that is your second choice becomes your insurance choice. It’s important that you choose the right institution for your firm choice, as this can be difficult to change later.

    If you have submitted a direct application, you will either accept or decline your offer by emailing Let all institutions know your decision, even if you wish to decline their offer.

    If you no longer want to study at Norwich or have accepted an offer from a university in another country, you should withdraw your application via UCAS or, in the case of direct applicants, notify the International Office directly.

    International degree recognition

    Our degrees are internationally recognised and can be used for applying for jobs or further education in your country.

    In UK, three-year undergraduate degree programmes and one-year postgraduate degree programmes (also known as graduate-level study in some parts of the world) are standard. When students complete their UG degree they earn a Bachelor of Arts with Honours or Bachelor of Science with Honours. At PG, students earn a Masters of Arts.
