The University of Greenwich welcomes Sri Lankan students on its programmes. View the entry requirements and contact us for further information.


The University of Greenwich has approximately 350 students from Sri Lanka studying foundation, undergraduate (Bachelor) degree, and postgraduate (Master's) degree programmes.

To join our programmes you will need to meet both academic and English language entry requirements before you start the programme. You need not wait until you satisfy all the entry requirements before you apply to study with us.

Entry requirements

Foundation and undergraduate degrees

For entry to Year 1 of three year Bachelor degree programmes, you will need to have completed 13 years of education and to have four O level passes (including Mathematics and English with grade C) and three A level examinations. One or two A level examinations are needed for entry to our International Foundation Programmes.

Advanced standing to Year 2 is possible if you have completed the first year of a relevant degree in Sri Lanka or to Year 3 of some degrees if you have completed two years of a relevant degree in Sri Lanka.

Master's degrees

For entry to our Master's programmes, you will need to have a three or four year degree from Sri Lanka.

Certain programmes have special requirements. For example, some MBA programmes require work experience after graduation at an appropriate level; and those for architecture need to submit a portfolio of their work.

English language

For details on English language requirements, please see our English/Foundation programmes page. 

Summer pre-sessional English language courses and International Foundation Programmes are available.

MA Events Management student, Tharanga Gunawardena, gained paid work experience at the Hilton Metropole in London during the London 2012 Olympics.

"As a foreign student, being part of an Olympic Games itself was one of the most exciting experiences I could have. As a student who looks forward to excel in mega sport event management, being part of the Olympics was the ultimate opportunity for me to develop skills required to pursue my career goals. It was also exciting to meet people from all over the world and interact with them as a hostess representing the Games."
