Studying in autumn 2020 during coronavirus


Our entry requirements provide a guide to the qualifications that you’ll need to study our courses. We understand that problems with the system for exams and assessments might mean you have lower grades that you expected, so we’re taking a flexible approach to admissions. We’ll do our best to look at your application on an individual basis, consider lower grades than normal and mock results, and look at more than your qualifications when we’re making a decision. You’ll still need to meet our English language requirements to be considered for your course.


This course is now available in Clearing. Follow this link or call 020 8411 6565 for more info.
