- College level class credit (min 3 units/credits or 1 semester in length)
- High school honours class credit (min 1 year duration; year 11 or 12)
These options can be ‘mixed and matched’ to meet our 3 x UK ‘A level’ requirements e.g: 1 x Advanced Placement test, 1 x high school honours class and 1 x college level class.
Please note however that any subject-specific‘A level’ requirements (see detailed requirements on your chosen undergraduate course page) can only be met by a relevant Advanced Placement Test grade, SAT Subject Test or appropriate college level class credit.

Your fee status will depend on where you are from. When students apply, they are classified as "Home/EU" if they are from the UK or from the European Union, and "International" if they are from elsewhere. If you are not sure whether your fee status is "Home/EU" or "International", read this advice from The Complete University Guide.
Fees vary by programme and will be detailed in the offer letter you will receive after you have applied. Fees are not fixed at the point of entry for all years of study: there may be a small increase year-on-year for courses which are over one year in duration. For more information, please see our student finance webpage.

Students with families (a spouse and children) should allow additional resources for each dependant. You can find more details about living costs on our International Student Support pages. If you need a visa to study in the UK, for yourself and/or your dependants, you should familiarise yourself with UK Visas and Immigration's (UKVI's) financial requirements. Details are on our immigration advice webpage.
