Our exact entry requirements are listed in the individual course descriptions.

Getting help with making your choice

If you’re not sure which course to do, our open days and meet the expert events are the ideal time to speak to tutors about your options. Our team of College & School Liaison advisors can also offer help and advice – look out for them at upcoming UCAS events and HE fairs across the region.
