Standard entry requirements

Our entry requirements provide a guide to the qualifications that you’ll need to study our courses. We have a personalised admissions approach and we make fair but aspirational offers. We want you to aim high and achieve great results.

We’ll always aim to be as flexible as possible and take into consideration any barriers you may have faced in your learning.

We're currently reviewing entry requirements based on this and they may be subject to some small changes. However, if you don’t quite get the grades you hoped, we’ll also look at more than your qualifications like your achievements in other areas and your personal statement.

At Middlesex, we're proud of how we recognise potential in future students like you and how we can support you to succeed in the future.


We accept applications from students with a wide range of qualifications, including combinations of qualifications. The requirements for our most common entry qualifications can be found below:

56-64 UCAS Tariff Points

A Levels DEE/CD - DDE/CC
Access requirements Overall pass: must include 45 credits at level 3
Combinations A combination of A-Level, BTEC and other accepted qualifications that total 56 -64 UCAS Tariff points

Our general entry requirements page outlines how we make offers where we have given a range (e.g. BBB – BBC in A levels), and how you will be made an offer if you are studying a combination of qualifications (e.g. BTEC and A level). In both cases, we will base this on information you’ve provided on your application.

Applications from mature candidates without formal qualifications are welcomed, provided they can demonstrate appropriate levels of relevant ability and experience.

Further Requirements
