- At least 240 points at A-level or an equivalent school leaving qualification.
- For Business Enterprise, at least 300 points at A-level is preferred or an equivalent international school leaving qualification. However, as this programme is aimed at entrepreneurial students, if students do not achieve these grades but have an entrepreneurial drive and commitment, they should still apply. Because of the practical nature of the Business Enterprise programme, numbers are limited. Entry to the programme is therefore competitive and short-listed candidates are invited for interview. We are looking for students who not only have good A-level grades (or their equivalent) but are also entrepreneurial in spirit, able to think laterally and prepared to work hard to make a success of their business.
- At least five GCSE (or equivalent) passes, including Mathematics, at grade C or above.
- We are able to be flexible for mature students and will consider certain approved professional qualifications.
- If English is not your first language, an IELTS score of 6.0 or a computer-based TOEFL score of 213.
