Additional entry requirements
Placement provider information There may be limitations to placement activity for students under the age of 18 due to the professional nature of some of our partner environments. This can be mitigated around, including the opportunity to undertake professional development activity which is not age restricted. Social and Community engagement Students under the age of 18 are not permitted to compete in the national British Universities and Colleges Sport (BUCS) league system and may be restricted from joining some sports clubs until the time that they turn 18. Some sports clubs' social events may be restricted from U18 attendance due to their nature. Physical Testing volunteering There are some opportunities on the course to act as a demonstrator in laboratory environments and our ethical approval may restrict the ability for U18s to take these roles. Observational roles are always available. If you are under 18 you may wish to consider deferring. If you would like to discuss this please contact the Admissions Team.
