Entry Requirements

UCAS tariff points

Typical entry - 112 UCAS points (BBC at A level or equivalent) and an interview.

Our UCAS tariff entry is 112 points or above which is equivalent to BBC at A level. If you have, or are predicted to get, those grades/points, we still invite you for an interview. We want to find out more about you and make sure the course you've chosen is right for you. Just as important, it's also a chance for you to find out more about us.

We also welcome applications from students who have studied (or are studying) the International Baccalaureate, Access to Higher Education diplomas, Higher National qualifications, BTECs, Scottish Highers, Cambridge Pre-U, Welsh Baccalaureate and equivalent non-UK qualification. You can calculate your UCAS points by visiting www.ucas.com/tariff-calculator.

Please note that applicants will still need to attend a Professional Workshop to be awarded our partial fee waiver.

Assessment-based entry

If you do not have the UCAS tariff points you need, or traditional entry qualifications, you can still apply through our assessment-based entry route. You’ll be invited to a Professional Workshop, where you’ll take part in four tasks (including an interview) to help us assess your suitability for the course. Your performance at the Workshop will determine whether we can offer you a place on our programmes.

English Language requirements

If your first language is not English you may need to complete an English language test, such as a Pearson English language test (PTE Academic) or International English Language Testing System (IELTS) test, to demonstrate you have the language skills needed to complete your degree.

Assessment Methods

Formative assessment
Each module contains at least one piece of practice or ‘formative’ assessment for which you receive feedback. Formative assessments are developmental and do not count towards your overall module mark.

Summative assessment
As you will be able to greatly personalise your degree by choosing elective modules to suit your needs, we cannot provide a precise break-down of your assessments. Typically for elective modules, your assessment will be designed to reflect the kind of activities you may be asked to do in the
workplace, either individually or as part of a team. For example, report writing, data analysis, preparing strategies and presentations. You’ll also submit different types of coursework and sit written exams as part of the assessment for some modules.

Here is the assessment breakdown for the core modules:

First year (level 4)

  • 10% coursework
  • 80% written exams
  • 10% oral assessment

Second year (level 5)

  • 17% coursework
  • 66% written exams
  • 17% practical exams

Third year (level 6)

  • 25% coursework
  • 65% written exams
  • 10% oral assessment

Fourth year (level 7)

  • 20% coursework
  • 75% written exams
  • 5% oral assessment

Apart from receiving feedback for your formative assessment, you will also receive feedback for your coursework and practical exams, and upon request, for your written examinations.

Progression
In order to progress to the next stage (from first to second year, and from second to third year), you will have to achieve 120 credits at the end of the academic year.
