Details of the academic and English language requirements for your course are on our course finder. We help many students from Lebanon to improve their qualifications to meet entry requirements.
We require a Baccalauréat General or Baccalauréat Technique plus an international foundation year or equivalent.
We require a bachelor’s degree from the American University of Beirut OR a Maitrise (Equivalent to a British bachelor’s degree) OR a Diplôme d'Etudes Supérieures / Approfondies (Equivalent to a British master’s degree).
There is considerable variation in the types of award offered at undergraduate and postgraduate levels in Lebanon. Some institutions offer French-style awards such as the Licence and Maitrise, while others offer US-style bachelor’s and master’s programmes and others offer a combination of the two.
The equivalency scale is as follows:
|Lebanese degree classification (French)||Lebanese degree classification (American)||Alternative name||English translation or equivalent|
|90–100 per cent or A
||90–89 per cent or B
||Very good / Good
||70–79 per cent or C
||Good / Fair
