How to apply
Advice to applicants
Factors contributing to a successful application include:
past academic performance;
predicted academic performance;
enthusiasm for, and realistic grasp of, chosen degree programme;
evidence of interpersonal skills and non-academic interests/achievements.
Further guidance on how to apply can be found on our How to Apply webpage .
Where you have mitigating circumstances these should be reported to your education provider and relevant exam board, we cannot make further allowances.
How your application is considered
Applications are considered on the basis of the UCAS form. Candidates may be required to complete an academic assessment. Strong examination results and academic assessments are the main factor in admitting students to our courses. We consider other information to ensure we admit students with the most outstanding potential. This is assessed within a structured framework and includes prior and predicted grades. Your referee should give realistic grade predictions for all qualifications that you are currently studying at the top of their reference. If you attend a non-UK school or college that does not provide predicted grades your referee should explain this policy within their reference.
All applicants should be aware that information provided in the personal statement may be used as the basis for further discussion during your interview with an academic member of staff.
Further information and advice on writing your personal statement and the UCAS application process can be found on the UCAS website .
Applicants studying BTEC Extended Diplomas, Access to HE Diplomas, or applicants who have not studied mathematics or sciences at A-level (or equivalent) may be asked to complete an academic assessment as part of the application process. The assessment takes the form of an online, invigilated, multiple-choice test.
We do not suggest that applicants prepare specially for the assessment, and it's important to note that it is not an entrance exam. The assessment is designed to test an applicant's aptitude and give us a picture of their current level of understanding and knowledge in key areas of mathematics and physics.
If you are invited to complete an academic assessment, we will send you all the instructions you will need via email.
Applications for deferred entry are considered equally to other applications up to the point of confirmation.
Deferred entry is granted on the discretion of admissions staff, and is normally granted for one year only and two years at the maximum in exceptional circumstances. Some English Language test results, such as IELTS or TOEFL, are only valid for two years from the test date. Your English Language test report must be valid on the start date of the course.
