Admission requirements


  • A-level: ABB (including Mathematics)
  • Tariff: 128 UCAS tariff points
  • International Baccalaureate: 31 points total, including Higher Level Mathematics at grade 6
  • BTEC: DD with an A-level grade A in Mathematics
  • GCSE: A minimum of grade 4 (C) in English Language and Mathematics in addition to other outlined requirements.

Mixed qualifications

Typically the only scenario where we make conditional offers expressed as UCAS tariff points is when an applicant presents mixed qualifications, most typically a combination of A-levels and a BTEC qualification.

In this instance, we may make a tariff point offer to present the applicant with more flexibility on equivalencies. In this case, please be aware that we may still ask for a specific score across certain qualifications and subjects. E.g. 'This offer is conditional on you achieving 128 tariff points. This must include A-level Mathematics at grade B.'

Subject exclusions

We do not accept General Studies and Critical Thinking. These subjects will not be included in any conditional offer we make.

Extended Project Qualification (EPQ)

We welcome applications from students who are completing relevant EPQ Projects. Whilst we recognise the value of these projects in preparing students for independent learning at university, the EPQ is unlikely to form part of any conditional offer we make.


Secondary school diploma. The exact requirements from the above qualification differ between courses. Please contact Admissions to confirm the requirements for your course of interest.
