We welcome applications from candidates who have chosen not to enter higher education directly from school/college, particularly if they are gaining further practical work experience.
A year between school and college can be beneficial in enhancing a student's maturity and motivation. If you are thinking of taking a year out you can apply in the usual way in your final year at school/college. If you later decide that you wish to begin university earlier, please contact the Admissions Officer as soon as possible. And remember, you can also apply to us during your gap year.
Where an applicant has not achieved the conditions of their offer for entry onto their intended course, where places are available and where deemed appropriate for the individual, taking the entire application into account, we may consider offering an alternative course, which the applicant can then choose to accept or decline.
Validation is the process through which courses are improved to give students the very best experience, taking into account employer feedback and subject developments.
If you have a foundation degree or HND you may be able to convert it to a full degree with an extra one to two years of full-time study, depending on your existing qualification and whether you top-up to a BSc or a BSc honours degree. Having a full degree really does open more doors to graduate level employment or running you own business.
