We have a large community of international students here at Southampton Solent University and understand that the process of relocating to a new country can be challenging. Students coming from Egypt can find a range of advice about obtaining a visa and studying in the UK right here on the Solent website.
For more specific advice about coming from Egypt to study, please see the information below. Alternatively, you can contact the British Council's Egypt offices or our own international advice team.
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.
To be considered for entry to a foundation year (year 0 of a foundation year), students should hold:
- General Certificate of Education, or
- Secondary Education Certificate of Al-Azhar.
For postgraduate courses, we look for qualifications that are equivalent to the British bachelor's degree. Students should hold:
- Bachelor's degree from a public or private university, or
- Bachelor's degree awarded by the American University in Cairo.
We are pleased to offer scholarships to students from Egypt. These are available if you are applying for a full-time course at Southampton Solent University and are a self-funded, full-fee student.

As an Egyptian 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 Southampton 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 British Embassy or High Commission.
