Applications and Finance
Applications for full-time courses must be made through UCAS.
normally expect entrants (except mature students) to have three
A-levels or equivalent. AS-levels or vocational A levels are
accepted alongside two A-levels.
For single language and combined languages degrees we normally ask for the equivalent of AAB at A-level, including both languages, unless one of them is to be studied from beginners' level in which case applicants should have evidence of language-learning ability (e.g. an AS or A-level in another foreign language or GCSE grade A in a foreign language).
Other qualifications such as Scottish Highers, Irish Highers,
International Baccalaureate, foreign school-leaving exams (Abitur,
French Bac etc.) are equally acceptable and typical points or grades can
be found in the university prospectus. Alternatively, you could contact
