Qualification requirements

Qualification Offer Further information

All applicants are considered on an individual basis.

Please note, foundation year entry is not appropriate for applicants who are currently taking A level Mathematics.
If you need any further help, please get in touch via the Student Services Enquiry form.
All candidates are considered on an individual basis.

If you don’t think you will have the exact Mathematics qualifications referred to in our entry requirements by the time you need them, you may not be sure what to do. We hope that the following will help.
•If you already have, or are taking, the A level (or equivalent) Maths qualifications specified in our entry requirements, you should apply for stage 1 (First Year) entry of the Mathematics degree course in which you are interested
•If you have a Maths qualification but will not have it at A level (or equivalent) when you start your degree, you should apply for the degree of Mathematical Sciences with Foundation Year (G101). We may give you the opportunity to take the Newcastle University Pre-Entry Maths Course* and the option to start in First Year if we think that this will be the best route for you
•If you have A level Maths (or equivalent) already but not at the required grade, you should contact us for advice. We may decide that you could be considered for Foundation Year entry, or it may be that our Maths courses are not the best options for you.

If you're still not sure, don't worry.

Whatever you apply for, our Admissions Tutors will help you decide which is the best route for you. They may therefore make you an offer for a different course (e.g. Foundation Year entry instead of First Year entry) from the one you apply for.

(*The Newcastle University Pre-Entry Maths Course aims to provide the requisite mathematical skills and concepts needed on our engineering, Maths and Physics degree courses and to prepare students for the modes of learning they will encounter. The materials for the course are delivered electronically and include opportunities to practise your skills. You study the materials in your own time and, when you are ready, you book your exam with the School to which you have applied.)
