Civil Engineering (with Foundation Year) at University of East London - UCAS

Course summary

This course will give you a solid grounding in the design, construction and management of civil engineering work. We have great links with industry and high levels of graduate employment. You'll enjoy regular visits to iconic construction sites in London as well as professionally monitored field study courses and projects. Entry level is 96 UCAS points, and you don't need A2 maths. You'll take a top-up module in your first year that will underpin and extend your GCSE maths knowledge. You can also gain advanced entry on to the final year of this BSc course by completing our two-year Foundation degree in civil engineering. This makes our course ideal for students who, while not necessarily 'maths geniuses', nevertheless have good basic skills in that area and aspirations to develop a career in management or a range of technical fields. This degree is accredited by the Joint Board of Moderators (JBM) comprising the Institution of Civil Engineers, Institution of Structural Engineers, Institute of Highway Engineers, the Chartered Institution of Highways and Transportation and the Permanent Way Institution on behalf of the Engineering Council as fully satisfying the educational base for an Incorporated Engineer (IEng).

We consider a range of UK and worldwide qualifications at the appropriate level and also take relevant work experience into account when considering an application. Many courses have a Foundation Year option for those students whose qualifications do not meet the BA or BSc entry requirements. Applicants should have, or be working towards, grade C in GCSE English and Mathematics (or equivalent Level 2 qualification such as Functional Skills Level 2 in English and Mathematics or Key Skills Level 2 in Application of Number and Communication) Entry requirements are intended only as a guide for applicants. They are not a guarantee of an offer, nor of the conditions that may apply. When making a decision on your academic suitability, we will make an assessment of you as an individual and will use information other than qualifications; which may include predicted grades, performance at Level 2, relevant work experience, previous study at degree level, personal statement, references and any portfolio, written test or interview, to make our decision.
