Academic Requirements

Undergraduate and graduate programmes

We know grades aren’t the be-all and end-all; we’re just as interested in your creative thinking and how you tackle a challenge. But we also know you worked hard to get those qualifications and they’re a measure of your dedication. You’ll need to check you meet our minimum requirements before you apply for one of our schemes. If you’re not from the UK, please check our international academic requirements.

Please note we may close vacancies ahead of the stated deadlines should we be oversubscribed on applications for a particular opportunity. We encourage early application.

All applicants please note

UCAS points

All grades need to have been achieved on first sitting.

  • A Levels = top three grades sat in the same year and first sitting over 2 years (excluding General Studies).
  • Scottish Highers = 5 Highers from your 5th year at school. (If you only sat four, we’ll consider your circumstances and may include your best grade from your 6th year).

Narrowly miss the requirements?
Don’t be put off applying. We’ve designed our application process to ensure we assess everyone’s merits, accurately and fairly, in the context of their educational and personal circumstances. We sometimes adjust entry requirements to reflect this context.

Extenuating circumstances
If you’d like us to take anything into account, there’s a chance to tell us about it on your application form. You’ll need a letter from your head teacher or university tutor to back up your request.
