For BAIS degree applicants

In order to be admitted to our accredited online Bachelor degree, the candidate must have completed high school.

High School Diploma/Certificate: Proof of your high school completion or the last year of school education in your country (higher secondary /senior secondary).  Many countries know this as their year 12 or 13 certificate which you are required to pass with a certain number of credits in order to enter into an accredited bachelor’s degree program at the university level.

Those who have completed further studies and have degrees beyond high school may submit those certificates if they no longer have their high school certificate with them.

Undergraduate applicants who have English as an additional/foreign language are required to achieve a minimum of IELTS 6.5 with 6.0 in each component or equivalent.

Should English be an additional/foreign language, then the applicant may be required to also write an English for Academic Purposes Placement test (EAPP) with IOU.
