The University has a Special Admissions panel that may consider an application from individuals: who either have passed examinations which would give them admission acceptable to universities outside the UK; or acceptable institution or who have a professional qualification/s (gained by examination) that admits you to membership of an acceptable professional body or who are over 21 and are therefore considered to be mature candidates. The Special Admissions Panel considers every aspect of the application including all qualifications, relevant work experience, age and reasons for study.
In the University’s opinion, candidates may be exempted from taking a particular intermediate subject or subjects, because the candidate had already covered a similar syllabus, as part of a previous qualification in the same depth and breadth.
