The University uses the UCAS Tariff to compare applicants with different qualifications. This also allows us to consider applicants who themselves have taken a range of different qualifications. Many programmes have specific entry requirements, so it is advisable to check on our website before you apply.

All offers are subject to the University’s general entrance requirements. For undergraduate courses, these are as follows:

  • passes in two distinct subjects at GCE Advanced Level;
  • a pass in one subject at GCE Advanced Level plus (a) passes in two distinct subjects at GCE Advanced Subsidiary Level, or (b) a Vocational A-Level Single Award, or (c) two Vocational A-Level part Awards;
  • a Vocational A-Level Double Award; or
  • a Vocational A-Level Single Award plus (a) two Vocational A-Level part Awards, or (b) passes in two distinct subjects at GCE Advanced Subsidiary Level; or
  • a BTEC National Certificate or Diploma; or
  • a Scottish Certificate of Education with (a) passes in five subjects, including at least three at Higher grade, or (b) passes in four subjects all at Higher grade or New Higher grade; or
  • the full Diploma of the International Baccalaureate; or
  • an Irish Leaving Certificate with passes in four subjects at Grade C at the Higher level.

For some courses we require applicants to achieve a GCSE Grade C or above in specific subjects, or an equivalent qualification. The information below lists the equivalent qualifications we can accept.
