Three A levels, including biology, with the grades B, B, C (112 UCAS Tariff points). In addition, we require five GCSEs passes including mathematics and English (at grades A-C). Other UK qualifications/ pathways that enable entry to the course include a recognised equivalent qualification e.g. BTEC, HND, science foundation course, science access course and Scottish Highers.
We welcome applications from those with previous degrees and from mature students. We consider these on an individual basis, taking into account the applicant’s academic and life experiences to date. Demonstrable evidence of the study of biology will usually be required but applicants holding good degrees (2.1 or above) in non-science/-health subjects will be considered on merit. Students with relevant medical or scientific qualifications may gain exemption from parts of the course at the discretion of the Exemption Panel of the College. Applications for exemption must be submitted at the start of each relevant academic year.
Applications are invited from overseas students who possess recognised A level equivalent qualifications, e.g. International Baccalaureate, gymnasium or entry to a university biological science degree. Overseas students must also possess a Use of English Qualification at an appropriate medical-science level, e.g. IELTS > 6.5.
Applications from medical doctors are welcome. Students with relevant medical qualifications may gain exemption from parts of the course at the discretion of the Exemption Panel of the College. For more details, please contact our Admissions Team.
