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 equivalent 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.

Students with a minimum of two years of relevant work experience and a current role in an appropriate workplace setting that have a line manager's letter of support and recommendation are encouraged to apply.

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, must 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.

Selection process

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.

English language requirements
