Entry requirements

A Foundation Degree will be of particular interest if you have completed a Modern Apprenticeship, vocational A levels, BTEC National or equivalent.

Foundation Degrees are also particularly suitable if you want to qualify while working.

2017/18 entry

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.

As a guideline, a typical offer would require you to obtain a UCAS tariff score of between 32-48 points, based on your level 3 studies.

Many students studying for foundation degrees come to us through work-based routes so you can apply for a foundation degree even if you don't have traditional academic qualifications.

We welcome applicants with relevant work experience.

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

  • Enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check
  • Appropriate work placement/paid employment to be in place for when the course starts

Where employment positions are part-time, entrance to the course will be at the University's discretion but normally a student would be expected to be employed or in a placement no less than 200 hours per year over the duration of the course.  This might be evenly distributed across the year or seasonal (for instance, with the majority completed over the summer period).

What constitutes a suitable area of work is also at the University's discretion, but for this degree work in the general areas of Physical Education (Primary or Secondary), coaching (or internship at a sports club), activity leading, gym instructing or personal training would be considered appropriate.

Students will be responsible for finding and maintaining their work/placement although some assistance may be available from the university.

These course specific entry requirements will usually be appraised by a short meeting/interview with the course leader prior to students being accepted onto the course.
