Entry requirements


College uses UCAS Tariff points to standardise entry requirements. It is expected that the total tariff score of all your relevant qualifications is at a level of 60* points minimum. This is a points total achieved by converting qualifications such as A levels (and many others) into points, making it simpler for course providers to compare applicants. To check your qualifications tariff value use UCAS tariff calculator https://www.ucas.com/ucas/tariff-calculator. Don’t worry if you don’t have the right qualifications – you may be able to meet the entry requirements in a different way. Accreditation of prior learning (APL) is essentially credit awarded for wider learning evidenced from self-directed study, work or training may apply to you**. Accreditation prior experiential learning (APEL) is an extension of APL that includes assessed learning gained from life and work experience. * May be higher / different for different programmes ** Link to our APR policy.
