Entry requirements

For students from United States

UK PhD's are equal to USA PhD's. Each application is assessed on its own merits, however students will usually be expected to hold a Masters degree, and/or have relevant work experience. Previous exposure to research or thesis writing is highly desirable. Entry onto undergraduate and postgraduate programmes is dependent on academic qualifications and English Language Level. Applicants from USA need NOT provide additional evidence of English Language ability, if previous education was with English medium of instruction. Otherwise, an IELTS overall 6.0 with 5.5 in each component or equivalent is normally required (some courses may require a higher score).

For international students

Entry to the MSc in Islamic Banking and Finance programme requires a 2(ii) undergraduate degree in a relevant subject, e.g. economics, finance, accounting or management from a university, or a similar qualification from any other institution. Alternatively, possession of a suitable professional qualification and relevant practical experience may also be accepted. In general, however, applicants are judged on their individual merits and age, work experience and other factors are also considered. Bangor University also offers International Incorporated Masters Degrees for International students whose academic credentials are different from those outlined above. The first year is studied at the Bangor International College , an embedded College on our University campus and delivered by Oxford International Education Group. If your native language is not English, you must provide satisfactory evidence that you have an adequate knowledge and understanding of written and spoken English: IELTS: 6.0 (with no element below 5.5); Pearson PTE: a score of 56 (with no element lower than 51); Cambridge English Test – Advanced: 169 (with no element lower than 162). TOEFL 75 Overall.

*There may be different IELTS requirements depending on your chosen course.
