As a general guide, we look for qualifications that are equivalent to the British high school A-levels. A portfolio is also required for most of our art and design courses.
Students with a good Senior High School Diploma and an IELTS of minimum 5.5 may be eligible for a foundation year (level 0 of a bachelor's degree) or an HND programme.
For postgraduate courses, we look for qualifications that are equivalent to the British bachelor's degree.
As a Chinese national, you will need to apply for a visa to come and study in the UK. When you have met all the conditions of entry for a full-time course at Solent University (including payment of deposit and course acceptance), you will be sent a Certificate of Acceptance for Study (CAS) number. You will need this document to apply for a student visa.
You should make your application for a visa at the local visa application centre.
