Overseas Academic Qualifications Equivalency Chart

This document provides the minimum grade requirements needed from each country in order to
apply for a scholarship. It is worth noting that there can be great variation in the education systems
between countries and, where applicable, multiple systems have been listed within the same
country.

The document has been compiled from a variety of sources including: UK NARIC (National
Academic Recognition Information Centre for the United Kingdom) www.naric.org.uk and the UK
government website for overseas qualifications
https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/overseas-degree-equivalency-table-and-
methodology.

Please note that this table lists the University of Westminster’s minimum requirements for
postgraduate scholarship applications only and these are non-negotiable.

If you do not meet the academic requirement needed in order to apply for a scholarship, then
sadly, your application cannot be considered. Please do not apply if you are not eligible.

If your country is not listed, or the education system currently used is not displayed, please contact
the Scholarships Office (scholarships@westminster.ac.uk) who can provide you with more
information. When requesting more information regarding academic qualifications it is helpful if
you can send copies of your academic transcripts, where possible.
