Scottish qualifications

We make offers on the basis of Highers, though Advanced Highers can be a way of meeting entry requirements if you are unable to meet them with Highers alone. A grade C or above in Advanced Higher will translate as an upgrade to the Higher grade achieved. If you have an Advanced Higher without the relevant Higher, you'll normally be asked for grade B in the Advanced Higher.

Currently, we don't use the UCAS points tariff scheme.

We do accept Highers taken over two sittings, although you may be asked for a higher grade if you have repeat or upgrade examinations.


Core skills

Core Skills are encouraged, but are not normally listed as separate entrance qualifications in any offer made.

Credited entry Advanced Highers

It may be possible for students with three Advanced Highers to be offered Year 2 entry. It is also possible for applicants with two Advanced Highers to join in February with partial-year credit (i.e. direct/credited entry into Semester 2) if your examinations are in relevant subjects with good grades. If you are interested in this option contact the UK Undergraduate Office and look at the individual entry pages for further detailed requirements.


Scottish Baccalaureate

We welcome the new Baccalaureates. Entry to year 2 of a degree programme may be possible but will be dependent on the subjects taken within the Interdisciplinary Project and the grades achieved.
