Can I apply for second year entry?



We will consider applications for entry to the second year of most of our undergraduate programmes. Programmes that do not currently consider applications for second year are: Medicine, Dentistry, Veterinary Science and Law.

If you are interested in second year entry on to one of our Health Science programmes we would recommend that you contact the department directly

For all other courses applications for second year entry are considered on an individual basis, however the following entry requirements are provided as a guide:

- You must have studied “like for like” modules. This means that the modules that you have studied in your first year must be the same or very similar to those studied by our first year students. We cannot assess your modules at this stage; however you can do this yourself using the module information on our course pages here

- Attain an overall 2:1 standard for your first year. You can apply before completing your first year but please be aware that any offer made may be on condition of your achieving this standard.

- Meet the current entry requirements  for your chosen course.

If you think that you meet these conditions then you are welcome to make an application. You will need to apply via UCAS in the usual way. However, please ensure that you clearly indicate that you wish to be considered for entry point two.
