Entry Requirements for Pathways

Pathway Description Criteria
Academic Pathway
A-level subjects
Students will usually study three A-level subjects. A-levels are linear qualifications that will be assessed externally at the end of two years.

GCSE passes at grade 4 and above, including mathematics at a minimum of grade 4 and English Language at a minimum of grade 5, plus the subject-specific entry criteria. In most cases this will mean that a student will have at least three GCSEs at grade 5, or above.

In some cases, students will not have taken a subject at GCSE and a related subject may be taken into consideration.

Vocational Pathway
BTec/ Diploma subjects
BTec/ Diploma subjects require students to work on internally-assessed portfolios and undertake examinations which are essential to passing the course. Five GCSE passes at grade 4 and above, including GCSE English Language and mathematics, plus the subject-specific entry criteria.
Combination Pathway
Academic and vocational Subjects
Suitable for students who want to take a vocational course but who are qualified to take at least one A-level alongside it.

Five GCSE passes at grade 4 and above, including GCSE mathematics, plus English Language at grade 5 and the subject-specific entry criteria.

In most cases this will mean that a student will have at least three GCSEs at grade 5,or above.

Please be aware that many of our courses also have their own subject-specific entry requirements, and these can be found in our course guide:
