Technical (T) Level qualifications

At Manchester, we are dedicated to providing quality higher education to students of outstanding achievement and potential from all educational backgrounds, and our entry requirements for undergraduate courses reflect this.

We look for strong exam results, but also consider supplementary information to identify students with excellent academic and all-round potential.

Entry requirements

Manchester operates a devolved admissions system, which means all admissions decisions are made within our academic Schools. Here our admissions staff will consider the relevance and acceptability of any qualification or subject. Our academic Schools have assessed the suitability of each individual T-Level qualification (in Wave 1 and 2) for admission to the University.

It is essential that our students are appropriately prepared to cope with the demands of our programmes. Subject specific knowledge is required on some of our courses, and this may not be covered sufficiently within the T-Level. Where any UK qualifications or subjects are not suitable, this is made clear within the published selection criteria for individual programmes. 

Suitable T-Level entry qualifications

We have reviewed and accepted the following T-Levels as suitable entry qualifications for the following programme areas here at the University. Further information on these courses can be found on our study pages.

Additional qualifications

In addition to a T-Level qualification, applicants will need a minimum of Grade C/4 or above in level 2 English Language and Mathematics (GCSE). Some of our courses require additional GCSEs in specific subjects and/or with higher grades. GCSE requirements are published in the selection criteria for individual programmes. 

Manchester is set to review the acceptability of Wave 3 of the T-Level qualifications. As with all our admissions policies, the University will continue to monitor and review selection criteria to ensure that we are fulfilling our aim of attracting the most talented students, irrespective of educational background.
