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:
- 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
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.
