Brazilian Flag


A very warm welcome to Wolverhampton, home to the University of Wolverhampton in the West‌ ‌Midlands. We are a diverse university who welcome many international students – we look forward to welcoming you from Brazil. 

When you arrive here, you’ll be based at one of our three campuses in the heart of the UK. Get involved with student activities or, sports and join a Students’ Union society, and experience the best that Wolverhampton and the rest of the UK has to offer. The city itself features popular art galleries and music venues, delicious choice of restaurants, Molineux Stadium (home to the mighty Wolves football team!) and more.

Enjoy great shopping options in Wolverhampton or Birmingham (the second largest UK City and only 20 minutes away). Regular trains running the length of the country stop at the city’s train station every day, or look out for organised student trips to some of the UK’s most beloved cities.

Entry requirements for students from Brazil

International Foundation Year

Certificacado de Conclusão de Segundo Grau / Certificacado de Conclusão de Ensino Médio

Students with a minimum score of 5 would be eligible for the International Foundation Year

IELTS 5.5 with a minimum of 5.5 in all components is also required


Título / Grau de Tecnólogo

Requirements will vary dependant on the scoring system used and applications will be considered on a case by case basis for entrance onto the final year of a Bachelor degree.

Usually, pass marks are 5 out of 10. Some universities may need a pass mark of up to 7.5 out of 10, but this will be listed on transcripts. Sometimes, there may not be an overall grade. We will need to look for individual module grades – as long as they have at least 5 in each module, we can allow entry into the final year.


Licenciatura / Bacharel – Bachelor degree

Students who have completed a Licenciatura or Bacharel from a NARIC or government recognised institution can normally be considered for admission onto a Master’s degree.

Requirements will vary dependant on the scoring system used and applications will be considered on a case by case basis.  Typical offers would be:

A score of 8 is considered comparable to a UK 2:1

A score of 6 is considered comparable to a UK 2:2

A score of less than 6 is considered comparable to a UK 3 and would require the completion of a pre-master’s course

English Language Requirements

English language requirements vary by course and department but the standard University requirement is 6.0 with 5.5 in every component in IELTS or the same scores in the University’s own entry test, the Wolverhampton English Proficiency Examination (WEPE).

Some courses may require a higher level of English language proficiency than the University standard requirements.  For details of each programme’s English language requirement please see the individual course pages.
