What qualifications or experience do I need? As a guide, you need a minimum 120 UCAS points PLUS 5 GCSEs including English, mathematics and a Science at grade C (4/5) or above. A minimum IELTS score of 6.0, TOEFL 550, is required for those for whom English is not their first language. Students unsure of their tariff points can contact the College/University for guidance. Please ensure that you have

an accurate list of all your qualifications; dates, boards, etc., and that you can provide copies of the relevant certificates if asked.

How will I be assessed? Assessment is by coursework and examination. Your coursework contributes 40 percent and examinations 60 percent to your total. A typical set of coursework might consist of two assignments and two open book tests, all completed over the 13 week study period with an exam in that subject at the end. The final mark is an aggregate of these two elements in most cases (coursework and exam), the idea being to give you plenty of practice in the sort of assessments that you need have confidence in before beginning your full degree study.
