Undergraduate entry requirements

Our Undergraduate Prospectus lists entry requirements for A levels and International Baccalaureate students for each course.

Students from Thailand are usually required to successfully complete a recognised foundation course for entry to our undergraduate programmes. As well as our own foundation courses, we accept foundation certificates from selected providers in the UK.
