A combination of AP and SAT Subject tests are acceptable, provided they are in different subjects. For example, AP French and SAT Physics are acceptable as two scores, but AP French and SAT French are only considered once. Students with International Baccalaureate or French Baccalaureate will be considered. The Cambridge Advanced International Certificate of Education (AICE) Diploma is accepted for entry. The Diploma must include three Cambridge International A Levels achieved with points equivalent to the A Level grade requirements for the programme including required subjects. Many of our degree programmes require that you have some experience of the subject at high school. This means that one or more of your three standardised test scores must include specific subject requirements, such as an AP score or SAT subject test in a certain subject relevant to the degree you are applying to. Please refer the university website for details of the English Language requirements for entry to individual undergraduate degree programmes.
