Access to HE Diploma

Typical offer: Pass the Access to HE Diploma, with at least 39 credits achieved at Distinction. This must include 12 credits from Mathematics units achieved at Distinction. Our Economics courses are academically challenging and require solid foundations of knowledge in Mathematics. We are looking for you to be studying a suitable level of Mathematics as part of your Access course (at least 12 units of Level 3 Mathematics) to be able to succeed on our course. However, due to the time-limited nature of Access programme delivery, it is expected that you will have also completed a significant level of independent study in order to further develop and refine these Mathematical skills. For other suitable units, please refer to the A level section for details of preferred subject combinations.

BTEC

Unfortunately BTEC Level 3 Extended Diplomas (QCF) are not a suitable route for this course.

Cambridge Pre-U typical offer

Open University Credits

Typically, we would be looking for you to have studied units worth at least 120 credits, including at least 30 credits at Level 2 in Mathematics. We would ideally be looking for you to be taking units including:

  • MST124: Essential Mathematics 1 and
  • MST224: Mathematical Methods

This information is a guide and all students applying with Open University Credits will be considered on a case-by-case basis. We will consider your application carefully and take note of any previous qualifications or relevant work experience. We may be able to consider alternative units to those listed above: please contact us to discuss you profile.

Typical offer: Pass units worth 120 credits, including a minimum of a Pass 2 with 80% in a relevant Level 2 Mathematics unit worth at least 30 credits.

Please note that taking OU credits may be counted as degree-level study by the Student Loans Company and therefore may be counted as previous study and have an impact on your ability to access student loans/grants for the entirety of your chosen degree. We recommend that you discuss this in detail with the SLC before following this progression route to the University of Bath.
