Entry requirements

All applications are considered on individual merit in relation to the aims and outcomes of the course. 

We welcome a mix of AS/A level and vocational A level qualifications as well as specialisation. If you are a UK school leaver, offers will be based on your results at the end of year 13, although AS grades gained at the end of year 12 may be used in conjunction with your predicted A level or vocational A level grades as an important indicator of ability.

Offers made to mature applicants (over 21) may take account of work and life experience, and in particular, work experience gained within the offshore survey industry.  

If you have not obtained or do not have the appropriate entry qualifications in the English language, you may be required to produce evidence of English language ability.  This will normally be the equivalent of:

  • GCSE grade C or above in English language.
  • IELTS average score of 6.0 or above with a score of at least 6.0 in the written component.
