Details of the academic and English language requirements for your course are on our course finder. We help many students from Libya to improve their qualifications to meet entry requirements.
We require a Secondary Education Certificate plus an acceptable international foundation year or equivalent.
We require a bachelor’s degree in architecture, engineering or medicine (from a university) OR a master’s degree (equivalent to a British Postgraduate Diploma standard) in any subject from a Libyan university.
Bachelor’s degree courses offered at universities are four to six years in duration. The master’s degree (MA or MSc) is awarded after two years of study beyond the first degree.
There are two main forms of grading system used in Libya. Firstly, a percentage system is used, although there may be slight variations depending on the institution. Secondly, a grade point system (GPS) is used, with 4.0 as the highest mark and 1.0 as the minimum pass-mark at the undergraduate level. The scale is as follows:
|Libyan degree classification (%)
||Libyan degree classification (GPS)
||English translation or equivalent
|85–100 per cent
|75–84 per cent
|65–74 per cent
