What do you need to get in?

Main entry requirements

A level
ABB-AAA

We require grades AAA-ABB, including two of Biology, Chemistry, Physics and Maths (?the Hard Sciences?). You must have a grade A in at least one Hard Science and pass the practical assessments in these subjects. If your grades are AAB or higher, we will accept a grade A in Geography, Psychology, Environmental Studies or PE in place of one of the Hard Sciences. Subjects with overlapping content are not normally considered as separate A-levels, eg Further Maths is not considered alongside Maths and Human Biology is not considered alongside Biology. General Studies is welcomed but not normally included as part of the offer. Your offer will be based on the above criteria as well as your predicted grades and past performance.

Employment prospects for graduates of this subject

Sources: DLHE & HECSU
These statistics refer to the prospects of graduates from a range of degrees including environmental health, counselling and occupational therapy, but the numbers of students taking these subjects (with the exception of occupational therapy) tend to be quite small. Job prospects overall, though, are better than average. There are also usually a larger number of mature students, particularly with counselling-related degrees. The graduates of 2012 tended to get jobs in related areas - not surprisingly, occupational therapy being the most important job - but they also went into a whole range of other job sectors, too. Graduates from these courses can be pretty flexible.
