Greenwich Law and criminology Entry Requirements
For entry in September 2017:
Applicants from a UK educational background should have:
A minimum of 80 UCAS points, plus GCSE English Language and Maths at grade C (or above). This might include:
- Applications from those with an A‐Level background in relevant subjects (please note that A-Level General Studies is not accepted)
- Applications from those with an AS‐Level background in relevant subjects (please note that AS-Level General Studies is not accepted)
- Other qualifications (in relevant subjects) which will be considered on application
Applicants from a non‐UK educational background should have:
- Successfully completed 11 or 12 years of full-time education (with qualification results being equivalent to a minimum of 80 UCAS points (for information on this, please contact our International Office – see below)), a demonstrable competence in mathematics (usually equivalent to GCSE Grade C) and a demonstrable English language capability to an equivalent of IELTS 5.5 or above (with no component below 5.5). Applicants requiring a Tier 4 (General) student visa to study in the UK must hold a UK Visas and Immigration UKVI approved IELTS.
- Applicants must also have a desire to study in the UK university system but need – or feel the need for – a year to adapt to the UK higher education system.
- Applicants – who go on to become students on the degree programme – who have no IELTS skill less than 5.5, but do not meet IELTS 6.0 overall will take the following two additional courses which are designed to support them:
- English for Academic Purposes 1 (15 credits)
- English for Academic Purposes 2 (15 credits)
These 30 credits are in place of credits from other courses. Such students therefore study a total of 120 credits. Where students with IELTS 6.0 overall choose to take these courses, the 30 credits will be additional to other credits. Such students therefore study a total of 150 credits.
Applicants from a non‐UK educational background who require more information on entry requirements should contact our International Office (firstname.lastname@example.org / +44 (0)20 8331 8136).
In addition, for ALL applicants:
- Applicants will normally be a minimum of 17 years of age (in exceptional circumstances applicants under the age of 17 may be considered).
- Applicants who have significant work experience relevant to their preferred study path, but who do not have the minimum expected formal entry qualifications, are welcome to apply by citing their relevant work experience to demonstrate their potential capability. Applicants following this method may be asked to complete additional application processes which may include an interview with a member of the teaching staff.
- Any applicant may be invited to interview.
- We welcome applications from mature students.
