Admissions & Eligibility

Applying is easy! Once you've decided on the program you want, and read up on the admissions criteria, head to apply.nexford.edu to start your application. If you have everything ready, it should take you seven minutes (or faster!) to complete the form.

Download our step-by-step guide to understand what you need to do to complete your Nexford application and give yourself the best chance of acceptance.

In most cases, you'll need to have graduated from high school before you can apply for your BBA. If you haven't graduated from high school yet, you may want to take the General Education Development certificate (GED). Get in touch to see what we can do: help@nexford.org

You'll need an undergraduate degree to apply for the MBA program. Nexford University accepts applications globally. We understand that your qualification may not specifically say that you hold a bachelor's degree in your country, but it may be equivalent to a US Bachelor's degree. We'll be happy to have your credentials reviewed! Get in touch with our Admissions team to know if you are qualified: admissions@nexford.org

However, your degree or qualification doesn't need to be in business or a business-related field.

If you have a degree in another discipline, you'll take four 6-8 week Advanced Business Foundation courses. Here, you'll learn the baseline business skills you need for our broader MBA. Upon successful completion, start taking MBA core courses.

If you have studied business before, you'll enter straight into the MBA and start taking your core courses.

The documents needed to apply vary by program level. For all programs, you need to submit a government issued identification and passport-style “selfie". 

If you're applying for an undergraduate program, you may need to provide proof you've graduated secondary (high) school or earned a GED, by submitting a transcripts, or in countries that require a national examination, submit the results (WAEC, IGCSE or NECO).

If you're applying for a graduate program, you'll also need to provide a copy of your undergraduate transcript. If the transcript is not in English, you will need to submit an official translation.

At Nexford, you may start learning after you apply and will have 60 days from enrollment start date to submit official copies of academic credentials.

You may also be required to submit an official copy of your English proficiency certificate should our Admissions Team be unable to verify your institution’s/school’s language of instruction.

If you can prove that you’re capable in another way, you won’t be required to take the test. Just upload one of the following documents and you'll be on your way! 

  • A recent English language certificate, valid in the last 2 years (we accept TOEFL, IELTS, Pearson Test of English (PTE), Duolingo English Test, Common European Framework of Reference (CEFR)) 
  • A certificate from a university.

We accept mature students! At Nexford, we believe you're never too old to learn. However, we cannot accept learners under the age of 18 years. Any learner over the age of 18 years is welcome to apply and start learning at Nexford.

No. If you have work experience, that's great, but you don't need it. Nexford's programs are practical, which means you'll gain on-the-job skills while you learn. If you do have work experience, we won't be able to offer credit just yet. We want everyone to start their program on a level playing field – that includes taking the same core courses and building the same foundational skills.

Once you're admitted (congratulations!), the next step is to enroll. That's when you confirm your place at Nexford, choose your start date and pay your first month of tuition.
