Programme Specification

Entry Requirements

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: Applicants are not necessarily expected to have formal qualifications, for example you may have had appropriate work experience.
