Entry Requirements

Entry RequirementsEdge Hill University welcomes applicants for our undergraduate degrees with a wide variety of qualifications and/or experience. Each application is assessed on its own merits.

We accept qualifications such as A and AS levels, BTEC/OCR Nationals and Higher Nationals, BTEC QCF, International/European/Welsh Baccalaureate, Scottish Highers, Irish Leaving Certificate, Access to HE Diploma, NVQ Level 3 (alongside other recognised qualifications), Advanced Diploma, and Open University credits etc.

UCAS Tariff

Entry RequirementsMost entry requirements for degree programmes are expressed in terms of UCAS Tariff points, although some courses request grades in specific subjects and additional criteria may also apply.

The UCAS Tariff system, which allocates points to a range of qualifications in university entry requirements, is changing for students joining programmes from 2017 onwards.

The points requirements to join our degrees are lower under the new UCAS Tariff, however for most courses you will still have to achieve the same grades as before.
