Admission requirements 2020/2021

The BSc Global Responsibility & Leadership is an intensive programme for ambitious students. There are three main requirements that students must fulfil in order to be deemed admissible to the programme:

  1. Secondary School Diploma
  2. English Requirement
  3. Mathematics Requirements

As the Global Responsibility & Leadership programme is a small-scale, intentisive bachelor degree, a selection procedure applies. Succesful completion of the UCF selection procedure (both parts) is also a condition for admission to the BSc Global Responsibility & Leadership.

More information about how the three admission requirements can be fulfilled is shown below. In case you have any remaining questions about this please contact the Admissions Office.
