How will I be assessed?

Entry requirements

  • We will consider you as an individual and take into account all elements of your application, not just your qualifications. We are looking for breadth and depth in your current studies and enthusiasm for the subject you wish to study.

    UCAS has introduced a new tariff for courses starting from September 2017. This means the points you will be asked for are different to previous years but the grades you receive have not changed.

  • At least 80 points with 64 points from 2 A level passes at C or above
  • At least 80 points with 64 from Merit Merit in two BTEC Subsidiary Diplomas or one BTEC Diploma
  • At least 80 points with Merit Merit Pass in the BTEC Extended Diploma
  • A completed Access to Higher Education Diploma
  • Equivalent qualifications such as Irish Leaving Certificate, OCR Nationals, International Baccalaureate and CACHE Level 3 awards.


  • For more clarification about your qualifications in the new tariff see the UCAS tariff calculator

    Contact the Admissions Team for additional guidance on whether the qualifications you currently hold or are taking would be suitable for entry.

  • As a general guide, to apply for a place on an undergraduate course (BA/BSc) at the University you need to have completed your high school education and have the required English qualification.

    We have students from all the European Union member countries so we are quick to make decisions on most qualifications. See your country page for more details

  • Check Your Country page to confirm that your local qualifications are suitable or contact your International Admissions Team

  • Be engaged in teaching in post-compulsory (i.e. Further, Higher or Adult) education for at least 50 hours per year.
  • Be qualified in the content of the material being taught, at QCF level 3 or above.
  • Be able to communicate clearly in spoken and written standard English, and demonstrate appropriate skills in numeracy (QCF level 2). The simplest way of showing this is a pass at Grade C or above in GCSE English and Mathematics, but other accredited evidence from a recognised awarding body is equally acceptable, providing that you can demonstrate their equivalence at interview.
  • You need to bring documentary evidence with you to your interview.
  • If documentary evidence is not available, you will be asked to undertake a skills test.
  • You might in any case find it useful to do such a test if you have been out of formal education (in a student role, of course) for some time. You may have to undertake a similar test for QTLS, and we would not want anyone to be too distracted by having to work too hard to meet the grade for that.
  • You must not have been previously excluded from teaching or working with young people.
  • If you are planning or applying to work with young people under 18 (under Eligibility Code 04) your employer will need to seek Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) clearance, although under some circumstances you may be liable for the fee.
