Students completing the HSC examinations in Bangladesh will need to take an additional course before applying for an undergraduate course at York. This could be A levels, the International Baccalaureate or a recognised foundation or access course, such as the York International Foundation Programme offered by York College.
Our departments of Electronics and Physics also offer their own foundation programmes.
The university may consider students for entry to year one on a case by case basis, where the student has completed a 2 year bachelor degree programme (post HSC) in an appropriate subject area from an approved university. Students must achieve a GPA of at least 3.20 out of 4.0 to be considered.
Please note that competition for places at York is very strong, so the achievement of the grades listed above does not guarantee that an offer will be made.
We will consider students who have successfully completed a Bachelors degree of at least two years duration with a minimum GPA of 3.2 out of 4.0, followed by a Masters degree of one or two years duration. Degrees must be from a recognised institution in Bangladesh. We will also consider applicants with a Bachelors degree from BUET without a Masters degree.
Each course may have further specific entry requirements, please see information on our postgraduate programmes for further details.
Applicants who hold a Bachelors and Masters degree from a recognised university will be considered for admission to PhD study. If you wish to apply for a research degree such as an MPhil or a PhD you normally have to have a Master's degree, or if not, at least some experience of conducting research.
