The University welcomes students from Zimbabwe as part of the diverse group of other 6,000 international students who choose to study with us each year.  The University of Zimbabwe in Harare, the oldest University in the country, is also an International Credit mobility partner of the University of Glasgow.

Entry Requirements


The University will accept school leavers with the Zimbabwe General Certificate of Education at Advanced Level directly in to year 1 with passes in three subjects.

We also accept IBDP and A-Levels. For subject-specific entry requirements please refer to our undergraduate pages. Students taking SAT/AP Exams should go to our USA page.

If you do not meet the first year entry requirements you can still apply to our foundation programme at Glasgow International College.
