International Academic Requirements

Student placements and graduate programme

We know grades aren’t the be-all and end-all; we’re just as interested in your creative thinking and how you apply yourself to a challenge. But you should have certain academic qualifications in place, as well as any necessary visa, before you apply for one of our schemes. If you’re not from the UK, you can find out what you’ll need here.

Look up the country you studied in to find the minimum grades you’ll need to apply for any of our graduate or undergraduate programmes. These are the closest equivalents to our requirements for UK students. If your country isn’t listed, you can still apply. Please tell us about your qualifications and we’ll get in touch if we need clarification.
