3.6. Entry for candidates without standard
3.6.1 The University is
committed to provide alternative entry routes for applicants who do
not hold standard academic qualifications to meet the normal
minimum entry requirements and have been out of full time education
for a period of at least 2 years. See University Policy on
Applications from candidates not offering standard school
leaving qualifications, and candidates for admission on the basis
of transferred credit (SRA 7).
3.6.2 If an applicant has
followed a non-standard educational route e.g. Home Schooled, the
application will be considered against the standard entry criteria
of the programme.
3.6.3 There will be a
requirement to demonstrate that the academic entry criteria have
been met. As well as a requirement to provide a reference regarding
suitability for higher education from an official who is in a
position of authority in relation to the applicant and knows the
applicant well enough to do so.
3.6.4 Applicants who
fail to meet the minimum academic level for entry directly onto a
degree programme may be offered a level 0 foundation programme,
where one is available. Entry to this will be on a case by case
basis, unless prior approved routes have been put in place.
Failure to meet the degree entry criteria does not automatically
confer admissions to a level 0 Foundation programme.
