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 Qatar can find advice about obtaining a visa and studying in the UK right here on the Solent website.

For more specific advice about coming from Qatar to study, please see the information below. Alternatively, you can contact the British Council's Qatar offices or our own international advice team.

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 Thanawaya Aa'ma Qatari (Qatar General Secondary Education Certificate) may be considered 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.

Visa information

As a Qatari 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.

Speak with an official representative

Solent has a number of official representatives around the world. They give you the chance to talk about opportunities here at Southampton Solent with someone in your own country.
