Specific entry requirements
Typically entrants will possess:
- National Certificate / Diploma or other full equivalent Level 3 qualification, in a discipline related to Engineering,
minimum grade MM, plus a minimum of three passes at GCSE (grades A-C) including Mathematics at grade B or equivalent
and English language.
- Employment in an appropriate workplace setting with their organisation’s support for the programme.
Entrants with equivalent qualifications and experience will be accepted on an individual basis. Full-time students may
be admitted with equivalent qualifications and experience subject to identifying suitable work placements.
Work-based learning is an integral part of the Foundation Degree programme. Thus, a key characteristic of a Foundation
Degree is close co-operation with relevant employers. Entrants to the programme will be expected to have the support
of their employer and will need to demonstrate the employer will provide the opportunity for work-based learning,
e.g. a letter of employer support with the application form. For full-time students, arrangements will be made to
identify appropriate work placement in advance of admission. It follows that in order to undertake the assessment
on the programme, a student must have access to an appropriate work environment (voluntary or paid; full-time, part-time
or work placement). If during the course of the programme a student loses their work or access to the work-place
then alternative arrangements, if feasible, will be made as soon as possible. Whilst the college will facilitate
as far as possible, fundamentally, it remains the learner’s responsibility to secure such access in order to complete
the assessment on the programme.
Please also see the University's general entry requirements.
Applicants are normally interviewed and may be
required to undertake numeracy and literacy tests as part of the assessment by
the College, especially where experiential learning is used to support
admission, to ensure that they possess the appropriate attributes to succeed on
the programme and to check
on the suitability of the work environment to which applicants have access.
