Entry Requirement

96 UCAS Tariff points from a minimum of 2 A Levels (or equivalent) including a pass in Science (Biology or Chemistry are preferred).
3 GCSEs at grade C, or grade 4, or above, including English and Maths.
If English is not your first language you will be expected to demonstrate a certificated level of proficiency of at least IELTS 6.0 (Academic level) or equivalent English Language qualification, as recognised by Anglia Ruskin University.

We don't accept AS level qualifications on their own for entry to our undergraduate degree courses.
