If you wish to enrol at SIST, please find below our levels of studies framework, with details about the examination of your application file and assessment of your English Level.

  • You will need to take an English Proficiency test to evaluate your English level.
  • If you already have an English proficiency certificate such as IELTS or TOEFL then the only test required will be an interview.
  • The result of the test will determine whether you register for Foundation Year or access directly to Level one.
  • Students graduating from American, Canadian or British High schools do not need to take the English proficiency test or the interview. 
  • Students from IB school and Cambridge schools can apply straight to level 1.Click here to download the checklist for undergraduate study

After You Apply

  • After you apply, SIST will forward your application to our partner university in the UK, who will give you either a conditional or unconditional offer. Any missing document can result in your application receiving a conditional offer only. A conditional offer does not mean a rejected application, it only means that you must submit any missing document highlighted by the admissions office. Failure to submit the missing documents will result in a rejected application. For example, missing a high school diploma/ A levels for a Bachelor programme applicant.
  • Applicants with the Unconditional offer are able to receive their acceptance letter and start the programme of their application without further submissions.
  • The university in the UK has the right to reject an application if the applicant is not eligible for the course, for example, a Bachelor or MBA applicant application can be rejected due to a failure of the Oxford Placement test (SIST Admission test).
  • Eligible students that meet entry requirements but fail the Oxford placement test are advised to take the Foundation Year programme to re-apply the following year for the Bachelor programme.
  • You will have to sign a payment agreement form according to the financial agreement you make with the university.
  • By now, you are registered in Morocco and in the UK. You will receive your student number from the UK so that you can gain access to the same e-learning tools provided to students in the UK.
  • Then you attend induction week and start your courses.
