Entry requirements

We’ll advise you every step of the way – and help you understand our undergraduate, master’s and MBA entry requirements – to make applying easy.    

Start by checking that you meet our entry requirements and get ready to build a brighter future when you apply to study with us. 

Undergraduate

Two subjects at A-level or equivalent. 

  • GCSE Maths, Grade C or Grade 4 or above. 

  • GCSE English, Grade C or Grade 4 or above. 

We strive to support students to succeed, whatever their background, and we encourage you to apply to study with us even if you don’t meet the academic requirements.

We view all applications holistically – and will consider your personal statement, background, work, and other experience when assessing your ability to succeed in your chosen degree programme.

Please refer to the Recognition of Prior Learning Policy. 

If you’re a mature student and you don’t meet our entry criteria, you may be eligible to enrol through our mature student process. You may be required to submit a CV and a short supporting statement of 500 to 600 words. This should set out why you want to study this programme and how it will support your career plans. 

We also consider a variety of qualifications including A levels with EPQ, International Baccalaureate, BTECs, T-levels, Cambridge Pre-U subjects, Irish Leaving Certificate, Scottish Highers, Welsh Baccalaureate and other international qualifications. 

Overseas qualifications may be accepted, and will be subject to evidence of equivalency normally verified through ECCTIS (UK ENIC).
