For most courses a decision will be made on the basis of your application form alone. However, for some courses, the selection process may include an interview – usually held between December and April for full-time students.

The interviews may be on a one-to-one basis, in a group or with your portfolio, and you may be given a task such as participating in a workshop, a short essay, questionnaire or translation to demonstrate your strengths in addition to any formal entry requirements.

Other entry routes

We will consider a range of alternative qualifications that are equivalent to the typical offer. Applications from international students with equivalent qualifications are welcome. Please contact us for details.

Our flexible modular structure enables us to provide direct entry to the second or third year of our undergraduate programmes for suitably qualified students. Applicants must have studied identical modules at their current institution (see course page for module listing) and meet our standard first year entry criteria; apply via UCAS giving full details of all your modules and previous qualifications.

If you don't meet the above entry requirements our International Year One can prepare you for direct progression onto year two of this degree course.

English language requirements

All non-UK applicants must meet our English language requirements. For this course it is Academic IELTS of 6.0 overall, with no element below 5.5. Please make sure you read our full guidance about English language requirements, which includes details of other qualifications we'll consider.

Applicants who do not meet the English language requirements may be eligible to join our pre-sessional English language course.

Applicants from one of the recognised Majority English Speaking Countries (MESCs) do not need to meet these requirements.
