Additional entry requirements
An admissions adviser will review your application, reference, and will decide if they would like to invite you for interview. Interviews take the form of a “taster” tutorial, which enables us to assess if you would flourish in the tutorial system and for you to ascertain whether you enjoy this method of teaching. Most students find this taster tutorial to be very enjoyable and a great opportunity to discuss a subject you are passionate about with a university lecturer.
