You will require:
- Level 2 qualifications such as GCSE (grades A*-C); NVQ; Skills for Life; Higher Diploma; BTEC award - Certificate and Diploma; Cambridge National; Cambridge Technical.
- Candidates with extensive work/vocational experience will be considered on an individual basis
- CV and personal statement.
International/European students will:
- Have graduated from secondary school in their country, demonstrating a basic level of English to benefit from the programme
- Have a minimum IELTS 4.5 or equivalent.
Normally the entry qualification will need to be mapped to the UK equivalent course to ensure access to the appropriate programme level (with a view to progressing to undergraduate level and achieving 60 credits at level 3).
If qualifications do not match the criteria above, it may be possible to access as a ‘non-standard’ entrant where there are equivalent/alternative qualifications. You will be required to submit evidence of work experience and have a discussion with the Academic Lead before being offered a place as a direct entrant to ensure that you have the necessary capacity for studying at level 3.
