Selected entry requirements

A level:

Students are accepted from a wide range of educational backgrounds and all applications are considered on their individual merits. Decisions are based on the application as a whole, including the qualifications, the personal statement and the referee's comments. The following must therefore be viewed only a general guide.

For students taking/with A Level in relevant science or mathematics subjects, we would typically be looking for grades BBC. If your A levels are 'inappropriate' subjects for an engineering degree then we would typically be looking for ABB grades, in addition to at least a grade B in Mathematics and Science/additional science at GCSE level, or equivalent.

In all cases we only offer places to applicants if we are convinced that they have the academic potential and the high level of motivation that is needed to be successful on the integrated Foundation Year and on their chosen degree programme. To help us make our decision, applicants may be asked to attend a visit day for an Academic Assessment.
