Bachelor Degree in General Requirements

Students applying for admission to all ECT academic programs must be graduates with a UAE Secondary School Certificate, or it’s equivalent, as stated in the admission requirements set in the Ministerial Decrees No. 200/year 2004 and No 133/year 2005.

A) Secondary School Certificate: A certified UAE general secondary school certificate, with a minimum score of 60% or its equivalent is required for admission, according to the regulations of the Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research. However, students with scores of less than 60% can study in the Foundation program and should pass 5 courses namely, Arabic Language, IT, Mathematics, Study Skills, and English Communication, along with a TOEFL score of 500 or equivalent before they study academic courses. Students with Industrial, Applied Technology, Commercial, and Agricultural Secondary School Certificates and with a minimum score of 65% can be admitted to ECT programs that are closely related to their fields of study and have to fulfill all other admission requirements. However, students with these certificates and with scores less than 65% can be admitted in the Foundation Program.

  • For English programs: (Diploma & Bachelor)
    1. Valid certified TOEFL results equivalent to 500 (173CBT, a 61 iBT) or above
    2. Valid certified IELTS results band 5.0
    3. Valid certified PTE A score of (36-41) is equivalent to an IELTS score of 5.0, and a PTE A score of (44) is equivalent to TOEFL 500 (173CBT, a 61 iBT). Otherwise, they may undertake a course of remedial or intensive English but must achieve the required score before they can proceed into their academic programs.
  • For the Arabic program “Mass Communication and Public Relations,” students should submit a TOEFL certificate with a score of 450 or equivalent. A student with a score of 400 can study the first year program but needs to obtain a 450 score before proceeding to the second year.
