Skills, knowledge, abilities, interests

Work experience is not essential, but we give preference to applicants who have relevant work experience.


To defer you offer to the following year, you must contact your admission officer to get a copy of the deferral form.  You can only defer your offer for one year.


If you applied in the previous year and your application was not successful you may apply again. Your application will be considered against the standard course entry criteria for that year of entry.  In your new application you should demonstrate how your application has improved.  We may draw upon all information from your previous applications or any previous registrations at the University as a student when assessing your suitability for your chosen course. If you are applying for a place for the same year of entry through UCAS Extra, you should provide additional evidence of your suitability for the course. If you are applying through clearing you are required to meet the clearing requirements. In both UCAS Extra and clearing the places will be subject to availability.
