Specific entry requirements
Typically entrants will possess:
- A minimum of one pass at A-level or 6-unit Vocational A-level (in Maths, Physics or a closely related subject) plus a minimum of three passes at GCSE (grades A-C) including Mathematics at grade B (or 6 in the new grading structure) and English Language,
- a National Certificate or Diploma or other full equivalent Level 3 qualification, in a discipline related to Engineering, including merits in the applied units, plus a minimum of three passes at GCSE (grades A-C) including Mathematics at grade B or equivalent and English language.

Work-based learning is an integral part of the Foundation Degree programme. Employed 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. 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).
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. A maths assessment will be required at interview to ensure that you are working at the required level.
