Admissions policy

We welcome applications from talented candidates of all backgrounds and we are committed to promoting equal opportunities. The life of the University is enriched by having a body of students which reflects the community at large and includes students from all parts of the UK (including the local area), from other EU countries and from overseas, and which contains mature students as well as people who come straight from school or college. We select people who have the ability and motivation to benefit from their intended programmes of study and who will make positive contributions to the life of the University."
