Start your degree in January

The University is one of only a very small number of institutions, that gives you the chance to start your degree in January.

If you start in January, it's possible to graduate within three and a half years. Ways of doing this are:

  • Taking additional half modules during a semester
  • Having previous qualifications that count as credit towards your degree

Please Note: Any places for January entry will be confirmed soon, please check back for further information.

Because of the modular nature of our degrees, you'll be joining and starting modules at the same time as all our other students. Entry requirements are mainly the same as for September entry. Applications for January entry are made direct to the UK Undergraduate Admissions Office and not through UCAS.

List of subjects - January entry
