The University of Bradford welcomes students from Ghana.

Entry Requirements

The University of Bradford is pleased to welcome applications from Ghana. When you apply, we will consider your educational qualifications, your English Language level and, in some cases, your relevant work experience. Entry requirements will vary according to the course you are applying for, but we hope that the following information will be useful as a guide to our requirements.

Bachelor's/Undergraduate Study

Students must complete a recognised Foundation Programme after the Senior Secondary School Certificate (see Foundation Programmes, below) in order to be eligible to apply for a degree at Bachelor's/undergraduate level.

Alternatively, students must have completed at least one year of university study at a reputable university in Ghana at an approved level.

Bradford also welcomes A-level and IB students from international schools.

OND with minimum upper credit and HND lower/upper credit can also be accepted for entry to degree programmes. How to apply.

Foundation Year Programmes

For entry to the Bradford's Foundation Year Programmes, students must have a Senior Secondary School Certificate average grade 1 - 6. Where courses have specific subject requirements (for example, Mathematics for Engineering) grades of 1 - 4 are required for these subjects. How to apply.

Master's/Postgraduate Study

Bradford welcomes applicants for taught Master's degrees from students with a good university degree qualification from Ghana. The entry level is 2:1 or 2:2, depending upon the course applied for. Please note that HND cannot be accepted for entry to Master's degrees. How to apply.


Candidates for Bradford's renowned MBA course will need to demonstrate that they have had significant managerial experience. More information is available on the MBA website.


Students with more advanced qualifications and a well-thought out research proposal can be considered for MPhil / PhD level study.

English Language Requirements

If your first language is not English, you will need to provide proof of your English proficiency before you can be admitted onto any of our degree courses.  See full details of our English Language requirements.

If you need help with your English or want to build your confidence before starting your academic degree course, you can study at Bradford in the summer for six or 10 weeks.  If you need more English language tuition, you can join the 20, 30 or 40-week Pre-sessional English language programme.  See the Language Centre website for further details, including entrance requirements.

Throughout each year of your studies, you can attend the free weekly academic English language support classes.  These classes will help you to continue to develop your academic English language skills.  Classes include academic reading, academic writing, grammar, academic speaking and listening, English for academic studies (postgraduates) and pronunciation.

We also offer a full programme of free academic English language workshops in each semester. 

You can book a one-to-one appointment with an experienced English lecturer to discuss any difficulties you may be having at any time throughout the year too.
