Home Study with us Considering university? Admission to courses

Admission to courses

We operate a fair and open admissions process committed to equality of opportunity and non-discrimination.

All applications are considered on merit and on the basis of ability to achieve, without discrimination on grounds of age, disability, gender identity, pregnancy and maternity status, race, religion and/or belief, sex, sexual orientation or socio-economic background. The university welcomes applications from all prospective students and aims to provide appropriate services to students with learning support needs or disabilities. Full admissions policy.

Information on minimum entry qualifications is provided in the summary information on each individual course page, please check your chosen course for required grades and further details. For most courses these qualifications need not have been gained in one sitting (please see specific entry requirements for our humanities degree).

We also accept a wide range of equivalent qualifications and recognise that there are a variety of routes through which qualifications may be gained and ways in which readiness for higher education study may be demonstrated. If you are in any doubt about your entry qualifications, or for guidance as to subject choice if you wish to prepare yourself for a particular area of study, contact an admissions advisor.

The university welcomes Curriculum for Excellence in Scotland and the introduction of new National Qualifications into Scottish secondary schools. These students will be ready to apply to university in 2015; please see our admissions statement with reference to Curriculum for Excellence.
