What do you need to get in?
Main entry requirements
AAA including Maths and at least one of Physics or Chemistry. *If you are not taking Physics or Chemistry A level but are passionate about studying Mechanical Engineering, contact us to discuss our pre-sessional Faculty of Engineering Physics Pathway programme. We would still require AAA from your A levels which must include Maths. Completing the Physics Pathway programme would prepare you for the degree, and involves attendance at the University for 4 weeks prior to the first year of your degree course beginning. The Physics Pathway programme is free, and scholarships for accommodation are also available for some applicants. For further details please contact: email@example.com, Tel: 0114 2227801.
AA in Maths and at least one of Physics or Chemistry.
D*DD in Engineering + A Level Maths grade A.
Distinctions may also be required in prescribed units.
6 in Higher Level Maths and at least one of Physics or Chemistry.
