Entry requirements

General requirements

We require basic qualifications in English Language and Mathematics. Typically that means at least GCSE English 4/C and GCSE Maths 4/C. We do not require specific subjects at A level (i.e. you do not need a Computer Science or Mathematics A level to be accepted on to our degrees).

If English is not your first language and you have not predominantly been taught in English, then we require IELTS 6.5 overall or equivalent.

We invite every applicant from the UK for an Applicant or Selection day which will include a short interview. We make offers after the interview.

Specific requirements

Our specific entry requirements for each programme are available on the individual degree pages.

International students

We accept qualifications from all over the world. Please check our country information pages for details.
