The university is committed to creating a community of academic excellence, creativity and scholarship, aiming to think global and act local to solve real-world problems and contribute to the future of society.


Entry Requirements

  • The university has a longstanding record of reaching out to students from disadvantaged backgrounds and ensuring that all can benefit from a university education, and considers a wide range of qualifications for entry to undergraduate programmes, including Open University courses.
  • The university considers GCSE (or equivalent) grades, references and student’s personal statement as well as information gained at interviews or auditions. AS levels will be taken into consideration where studied; a 4th subject at AS level is not essential. Any courses that accept AS levels will only accept a maximum of 20 UCAS points.
  • Candidates are expected to achieve a minimum entry requirement for admission to an undergraduate degree programme of a pass in 2 A level subjects (in some cases specific subjects) or in an equivalent level 4 qualification. Some programmes do not accept General Studies A level and, where this is the case, this is indicated in the course entry requirements, detailed using the UCAS Tariff.
