64 UCAS points, IELTS Score: 6.5 Although we use UCAS points as a guide for students coming straight from school or college, for us, what you've achieved in the past isn't nearly as important as what we believe you can achieve in the future and we excel at providing the support that helps students succeed, regardless of their previous academic background
In addition: 64 UCAS points are necessary for entry onto this programme. We will also be really interested to hear from any prospective students that have industry experience and no formal qualifications.
