Cypriot entry requirements for UK Universities

My children are interested in applying for undergraduate degrees in the UK in the future with a preference to Scotland. We were told that with a good graduate mark from Cyprus public school and 2 GCEs they can be accepted.

Is this correct?
Hi there,

Most UK Unis will publish their entry requirements online, including equivalent qualifications from other countries. Here's Glasgow's Faculty of Science for an example:


It certainly seems to be the case that 2 GCE A Levels plus and a good Apolytirion score will gain your children entry to a UK uni.

My biggest piece of advice is get in touch with the unis they hope to apply to and confirm they'll consider applications from your children. I think they'll be in a good position but it's worth confirming.
