We accept a wide range of qualifications including A-levels, baccalaureates, HNDs, HNCs, NVQs and, in some cases, prior work experience or training.
You will find typical offers on each course entry. The course entries also list any specific entry requirements, such as passes in particular subjects or specific grades, which may be a condition of entry.
Below you'll find examples of acceptable qualifications. These are intended to give you a general guide to the attainment levels we expect, including:
For combined honours, if the two subjects have significantly different entry requirements, the requirements will be between the two.
Note: Only GCSEs at grade C and above are acceptable.
We welcome the development of the new Advanced Diploma qualification, and consider the Diploma to be the equivalent of existing Level 3 qualifications such as A-levels.
Applicants who successfully complete the level 3 Advanced Diploma will be considered for entry onto degree courses in closely related subjects. Specific requirements will depend on the exact course applied for, and it is possible that applicants may need to take specific Additional and Specialised Learning options. For some subject areas it is likely that named A-levels may also be required in order to meet the specific entry requirements for the course. Please see individual entry details for each course for specific requirements.
You may need to meet country specific and English language requirements to be eligible for undergraduate study. See further entry requirements on our international students pages.
If you cannot find your own combination of likely grades and qualifications, do not be deterred - contact our Admissions Office and they will be able to advise on whether you are likely to meet the requirements for a particular course. If your qualifications are not equivalent to the above, you may be interested in our programme of foundation courses.
We know that it may be very difficult to complete traditional work experience, so we won’t be making this a compulsory part of assessment for 2021 entry. We will look for examples in your application of relevant values, commitment to the vocation and an understanding of the professional area. You could reflect on other experiences in your personal life, extra-curricular activities or wider understanding of the subject (e.g. virtual taster sessions or wider reading) to evidence this in your personal statement.
