Entry Requirements

Advanced entry

If you have either, successfully completed a qualification, or are studying towards completing a qualification in your own EU country, you may be eligible to apply to enter the third/final year of one of our undergraduate degree programmes. In most cases, you may be able to obtain an undergraduate Honours Degree [BEng (Hons), BSc (Hons) or BA (Hons)] in just one academic year.

Mainland European students can apply for ‘advanced entry’ (to enter the third/final year of our undergraduate degree programmes) and hence obtain an undergraduate degree in one year. There is also the option to study for credits for one semester.

If you are aiming to study with us for convalidation purposes, our European Programme allows you to convalidate the modules with your ‘home’ qualification.



We ask that students who come to study with us have a B2 level (or equivalent) in English Language.

Free English language tuition is available during your course. There are also many opportunities for you to enhance your language skills with our range of social events and societies.



There are two ways of applying to study with us. First of all you can apply using our direct application form. Alternatively, if you prefer, you may apply through UCAS (our code is G53) although this is not necessary
