My High School final exams are still pending. Can I still apply?

Yes, you can apply for admission with the marks of the 1st semester of your final high school year or your final year predictions if you are coming from other international systems of secondary education such as IGCSE, A-levels and the IB. Once applicants submit their final year results to the Office of Admissions, we will process conditional offers and issue final offers. EUC will consider the present special circumstances of applicants when addressing any issues with applications for admission, and we will try to be as flexible as possible.

A-level exams have been cancelled. What does this mean for me?

The UK government has cancelled the 2020 summer A-level examinations. Candidates will still receive grades that reflect the hard work that students have put in over the past two years.  We will accept the grades awarded. Once applicants submit their results to the Office of Admissions, we will process conditional offers and issue final offers.

Please be assured that we’ll do all we can to ensure these changes won’t affect your opportunity to attend the  University in the coming academic year.

I want to apply, but my school is now closed and unable to provide a reference. What should I do?

We are happy to accept an application without a reference, but we will need referee contact details at the time you submit the application for admission. You will still need to submit the reference letter when schools re-open.

Can I transfer to EUC?

Yes, candidates who have started their university education elsewhere or have successfully completed studies at an accredited university and wish to apply for admission to EUC, will be considered for transfer admissions.  Candidates must submit official transcripts and course descriptions (or syllabi) to the Office of Admissions in order to receive a transfer credit evaluation report indicating the number of courses exempted.
