If you dont have the right mathematics and/or science qualifications for direct entry, please see our Foundation Year information below.

- A Levels

AAB including Mathematics and one other science subject (preferably physics) but excluding General Studies and Critical Thinking. GCSE Physics or Dual Award Science (minimum grade B) required if not offered at A or AS level.

- Scottish Qualifications

AA-AB at Advanced Higher, including Mathematics and preferably Physics. Physics required at Higher Grade B if not offered at Advanced Higher.

- International Baccalaureate

36 points with Mathematics and Physics at Higher Level grade 5 or above.

- Irish Leaving Certificate

Candidates will normally only be considered for foundation year entry. All applications will be considered on an individual basis.

- Access Qualifications

Please see BEng entrance requirements. Accrediting body requirements will sometimes mean that students may only be considered for entry to BEng.

- BTEC Level 5 HND

Overall Distinction, with Distinctions in mathematics and science units. Units must include both Analytical Methods and Further Analytical Methods or equivalent. Students studying the HND outside of the UK, and who have studied subjects corresponding in syllabus and level to Stage 1 of the degree and with Distinction in Mathematics and other engineering subjects, may be considered for Stage 2 entry.

- BTEC Level 3 Extended Diploma (formerly BTEC National Diploma)

Candidates will normally only be considered for entry to BEng.

- Cambridge Pre-U
