Mature Students and Foundation Entry

We welcome applications from mature students. If you already have existing qualifications you can check if you meet the first year entry requirements, or if you have taken an Access course contact us to see if it contains the required level of Mathematics.

If you do not have the appropriate qualifications our Electronic Engineering with Foundation Year could provide you with an entry route. This course is intended to address the needs of a wide range of people, for example:

  • Mature students with no recent or advanced level qualifications
  • Those wishing to re-enter education having left with qualifications below A level standard
  • Overseas students whose school leaving qualifications are not the equivalent of UK Advanced Level
  • Those studying non-scientific/non-mathematical A level courses who wish to change the direction of their studies

Covering essential skills in Maths, Physics and Electronics, this is an intensive programme which then allows entry to any of the department's other degree courses (MEng courses require a slightly higher pass mark). For more information you can see full details of the Electronic Engineering with Foundation Year, the entry requirements and find out about how to apply.

We also understand that financing your studies can be a major consideration, especially for those thinking of returning to education after some time. Our information on Foundation Scholarships and Finance gives details of sources of funding and advice you can get from the University.
