Before you apply

Before you make your application, you should check that you have the most up-to-date entry requirements, information about our typical offer and other important information about how we assess your application.

We make every effort to ensure that the entry requirements are as up-to-date as possible in our printed prospectus. However, since this is printed well in advance of the start of the admissions cycle, in some cases our entry requirements and offers will change. Before attending an open day and making your application, we strongly advise that you check the latest online information for the programme(s) you are interested in and contact the Admissions Office if you have any questions.

The Russell Group of research-intensive universities has produced the Informed Choices guide as a way of supporting students who are in the process of selecting their A Level subjects. As well as reading this guide, it is important to also check the specific entry requirements for all the courses you are interested in applying to, as there can be differences across the different institutions that make up the Russell Group.
