We are looking to admit students whose potential to benefit from our research-led learning and teaching might be demonstrated through a range of qualifications and achievements prior to entry into Higher Education.
You will need to satisfy the relevant admissions tutor that you have achieved the necessary academic and non-academic criteria required for the programme of study.
Our online Course Finder and our undergraduate prospectus will help give you a broad overview of the entry requirements and typical offers for particular degree programmes. However, each of our Academic Schools publishes its own admissions criteria and you are advised to compare the criteria for both Schools if you are applying for a joint honours programme. For some vocational programmes with very specific or detailed entry requirements, including the MBBCh in Medicine (A100) and the BDS in Dentistry (A200), the admissions criteria are produced at programme level.
GCSE, A level and the Welsh Baccalaureate qualifications in both England and Wales are changing.
Our Academic Quality and Standards Committee is currently considering the implications of these developments. Further information will be published in due course.
Admissions and selection criteria by Academic School/subject
This information will assist applicants in assessing whether they have the skills, attributes and qualifications which our Schools have identified as being important if students are to succeed on their undergraduate programmes of study. It also summarises the process which the School uses for selecting students and making offers, so that applicants understand how the School considers their applications.
English Language qualifications
In the case of applicants whose first language is not English, competence in the English language is also a criterion of admission. Although the University has general English language requirements, some Academic Schools have higher requirements.
Feedback, complaints and appeals
The University has agreed procedures for dealing with requests for feedback which is outlined in the Admissions Framework:
