Entry Requirements

Level 2: You require 4 GCSEs at grade 3/D or above including English, Maths and Science.

Once we have received your application you will be invited to a programme interview which will give you the chance to ask any questions you have about the course and for us to discuss which level you are most suited to based on your current / predicted results. 

If you meet the entry requirements you will be enrolled on our Level 2 programme where you will gain a specialist qualification in your chosen area.
