Applicants should either be young learners aged between 18 to 21 who have not engaged in post-16 education but whose experience since leaving full-time education may have helped to equip them for further study.
Alternatively, either applicants aged over 21 who are mature learners with no formal qualifications or learners with A Levels (or equivalent) which were obtained more than three years ago are welcome to apply.
It is desirable for applicants to have achieved a grade C (4) or greater in GCSE Mathematics (or equivalent).
Applicants whose first language is not English are welcome to apply with a suitable IELTS qualification or university recognised equivalent and evidence of academic qualifications would be required.
Applicants are encouraged to apply for the year in which they wish to enter the programme although deferrals will be allowed in exceptional circumstances.
Potential applicants should attend advertised Open Day events when the basis for any exceptional entry can be considered.
