Undergraduate

If you have studied SSEC/WAEC and achieved C6 or above, plus International Baccalaureate,

 

A-levels, foundation or a national diploma, we will consider you for entry onto an undergraduate degree.

 

 

Advanced entry: We will consider individual applications to enter the second or third year of a degree course. You will need to supply details of the courses you studied, your grades (showing scores), your syllabus and a grading guide. Our course leaders look for a close match between first degree subjects and our own DMU qualifications. If the match is not exact, we will try to be flexible by considering other factors.

 

Some courses have additional entry criteria such as a portfolio, an audition, or require a student to have a particular qualification.
