Generally, offers will be made in terms of UCAS Tariff points but there are notable exceptions to this.
Applicants currently at school or college will be expected to be taking a minimum of two A-levels or the equivalent and they will be asked to achieve the necessary UCAS Tariff points from these qualifications and any others that attract UCAS Tariff points.
Currently the University asks for between 240 and 300 UCAS Tariff points for 2016 entry and between 96 and 120 UCAS Tariff points for 2017 entry, depending on the degree programme. Up to date information on a programme by programme basis can be found on the UCAS course search engine.
Some University programmes require the successful applicant to achieve specific grades in the qualifications they are taking rather than asking for an accumulation of UCAS Tariff points. This will be made clear when an offer of a place is made.
Some programmes require applicants to have studied a specific subject at Level 3 (A-level or equivalent). Please check individual subject entries for specific requirements.
Grades declared following modular examinations for AS Levels at the end of Year 12 will assist us in framing conditional offers, but students taking linear assessment, who will not know their grades until Year 13, will not be discriminated against. The University does not intend to use unit grade information.
The University will not normally make offers for a place on degree programmes based on AS qualifications alone (i.e. to those with no A2 Levels or equivalent, or only one A2 Level qualification or equivalent).
