ABB for students with 'A' Levels in any subject or the equivalent and GCSE Maths and English grade 4 or better (grade C) or equivalent.
We also recognise that students often possess knowledge, skills, experiences and attributes that can be considered in place of `A´ levels or equivalent qualifications.
For this reason, students applying for part-time study will normally be invited for interview. At the interview we will look for things such as enthusiasm, experience, subject knowledge, relevant skills, interests and activities, and an awareness of the time commitments involved in studying part-time for a University qualification. We would expect candidates to possess basic computer literacy together with English and Maths as demonstrated by the GCSE requirements.
