Requirements For International Students

Getting a bachelor’s degree opens access to job opportunities, exposes you to new ideas, and boosts your earning potential. A bachelor’s degree can set you on a path to break into a field you’ve always been interested in or enhance a career you’re already in.

To enroll, a bachelor’s degree program requires:

  • High school GPA: Bachelor’s study programs require you to have a certain GPA in high school to be eligible. Based on the decision of the Ministry of Education and Sport in Albania, a high school GPA must be above 6.5 out of 10.
  • High school diploma: Bachelor’s degree programs require you to have completed a high school level of education.
  • Standardized state exams, similar to Matura exams in Albania: Most of the educational systems all around the world apply State exams to high school graduates before entering the university. High school students typically take standardized tests in their junior or senior year before applying to colleges.
  • High school diploma recognition: This process is done at the Ministry of Education and Sport in Albania. All required documents from the country of origin must have the apostille stamp or have been legalized by diplomatic representatives of Albania in the country you are living, based on the agreement.
  • English language: the University of New York Tirana offers 100% study programs in the English language. For this reason, it is required that bachelor’s freshmen students have an English certificate level B1. For students that do not have an English certificate, UNYT offers English preparation courses (ESL) where freshmen students learn and improve their English knowledge and skills.
