Entry requirements

International/European students will:

  • Have graduated from secondary school in their country, demonstrating a basic level of English to benefit from the programme
  • Have a minimum IELTS 4.5 or equivalent.

Normally the entry qualification will need to be mapped to the UK equivalent course to ensuring access to the appropriate programme level (with a view to progressing to undergraduate level and achieving 60 credits at level 3). When applying, it is essential that you submit the following:

  • CV
  • Qualification evidence awarded in country [These will be checked for equivalency with the National Recognition Information Centre (NARIC) organisation]
  • Transcripts of all relevant education/training

Non-standard entrants:

If qualifications do not match the criteria above, it may be possible to access as a ‘non-standard’ entrant where there are equivalent/alternative qualifications. You will be required to submit evidence of work experience and have a discussion with the Academic Lead before being offered a place as a direct entrant to ensure that you have the necessary capacity for studying at level 3.
