We are proud of our long history in welcoming students from all backgrounds onto our medical, health and science courses. We are committed to a fair and transparent admissions process and regularly review our academic and non-academic entry criteria.
Undergraduate entry criteria
You must have at least five GCSE’s and have achieved at least a grade 4 for health degrees, and a grade 6 for science and medical degrees.
We accept A Levels and the International Baccalaureate for all courses. We may also accept BTEC Extended Diploma and Access courses depending on your chosen degree. Please check individual course entry criteria to assess your eligibility.
For the majority of our undergraduate degrees all level 3 (A levels and equivalent) qualifications must have been completed within the last five years, including the year of application. This does not apply to graduate-entry medicine.
Postgraduate entry criteria
Our postgraduate degrees provide an opportunity for you to specialise in a specific area of medicine, health or science. As such, our entry criteria reflects the rigorous nature of postgraduate study. For the majority of our postgraduate degrees, we ask for a minimum of a 2:2 in a life science of health-related degree. Please check individual course entry criteria to assess your eligibility.
