Our grades for 2021

We know you've had your education massively disrupted due to the global pandemic, that's why we've reduced our entry requirements for 2021.

For A-level students we have generally lowered our typical offers by one grade and our contextual offers by two grades, and we’ve made similar adjustments to other qualifications.

You can see our new requirements on each undergraduate course.

You can also browse our Foundation Year courses or find out more about our contextual offers.

How we're responding to Covid-19

As the Covid restrictions ease in the UK, we are looking forward to being able to welcome students back to campus in September 2021 to fully enjoy what we have to offer.

The health and safety of our students and staff does remain our priority though, so we will be updating our guidance as the situation demands it.
