Applicants will already hold English and maths at GCSE grade 4 or above before the start of the course.
Many universities will also insist on a GCSE Science at grade 4 or above, therefore we highly recommend applicants also hold this prior to the start of the course. An initial assessment of numeracy and literacy will also be carried out alongside an interview.
It is expected that students will be fully committed as the course requires personal study and homework.
