  • Academic proficiency: This is applicable for postgraduate and undergraduate students as academic proficiency is an important criterion of qualification for a course at the University of East Anglia.

It would be appropriate to say that the chances of receiving an admission do not depend upon the country from where you are applying. It depends upon your profile/candidature and interview (if any).
