Articulation / advanced entry

HNC and HND students can apply for year one of all of our degrees. We usually ask for students to pass the whole course and obtain B’s or above in their graded units, with the exception of our Law degrees where we look for As. Some of our degrees ask for specific subjects, so if you don't have these then you would have do to an HN course in that specific subject – e.g. a Science-based HN course for entry into our Biological and Environmental degrees. If you already have the subject requirements then you're HN course can be in any subject, although we'd recommend you studied something in a related field to improve your study skills. Check our course pages for more details.

Advanced entry into year 2 or year 3 is possible for some of our degrees, but not all. This depends on what you are currently studying at college and what you want to study at university. Mainly advanced entry would be into a degree in a related subject to your college course. 

Use the articulation finder below to find out what is available before you apply. 

If you would like to know which HNC/D would be most suitable, or if you would like to know if your current course is eligible for advanced entry into one of our courses please consult the search engine below.

Articulation search

You can either select your college course or the degree you would like to study. To refine your search you can also select you college course level (HND/HNC). If you are only interested in advanced entry then tick that box.

Not all degrees offer advanced entry so if you are interested in studying a joint honours degree you need to check both subjects.

You can sort the results by clicking the table headings.
