Entry requirements

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 WAEC Senior School Certificate may apply for a foundation year (level 0 of a bachelor's degree).

For postgraduate courses, we look for qualifications that are equivalent to the British bachelor's degree.

International scholarships    

We are pleased to offer scholarships to students from Nigeria. These are available if you are applying for a full-time course at Solent University and are a self-funded, full-fee student.

Visa information

As a Nigerian 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 your local visa application centre.
