Qualification requirements

We also consider equivalent qualifications and combinations. We consider the following subjects for the Science or Numerate requirement: Biology/Human Biology/Physics/Maths/Further Maths/Core Maths/Use of Maths/Environmental Science/PE/Sport Science. Outside of A levels the modules will need to be provided when you apply so we can assess the content fully. A lower offer may be made based on a range of factors, including your background (such as where you live and the school or college you attended), your experiences and individual circumstances (you may have been in care, for example). This is called a contextual offer and we get data from UCAS to make these decisions. NTU offers a student experience like no other, and this approach helps us to find students who have the potential to succeed here, but may have faced barriers that can make it more difficult to access university.
