 Students with a minimum score of 6 in the East African Certificate of Education or the Uganda Certificate of Education are eligible for entrance to the International Foundation Year.


The Uganda Advanced Certificate of Education, Cambridge Overseas Higher School Certificate and East African Advanced Certificate of Education are comparable in terms of grading and equivalence to UK A levels.
