- Individual courses may also have a specific entry requirement.
- It is important that you check our entry requirements before making an application to ensure that your course choices are realistic.
We will always do our best to ensure the full range of subject choices are available for students but sometimes a course may be withdrawn if it is is not viable to run as a result of low application or enrolment numbers. Should there be any changes to our curriculum offer, this will be communicated with prospective students and further advice and guidance will be offered.
