Entry requirements

Entry requirements

The entry requirements for study at UCM for international students are available to view in full on the university's website. Students will be expected to submit proof of their high school education or equivalent as part of their application. There is an international student application form to fill out which takes students through the necessary steps.

Students must also pay a non-refundable application fee, and they will have to provide bank statements showing sufficient funds to cover tuition along with any supporting documentation about financial assistance the student will be receiving.

All courses at UCM are taught in English, and so any students applying from a country where English is not the first language will also need to provide test scores for English proficiency. The requirements depend on the academic program the student wishes to apply for, and do not apply for students who wish to study English language at a foundation level.
