For students who have recently been in education, we would expect a candidate to have achived a grade 9-4/A*- C in both GCSE English Language and GCSE Maths and one of the following:

  • A BTEC Level 3 qualification in Construction and The Built Environment 
  • A GCE Advanced Level profile that demonstrates strong performance in a relevant subject or adequate performance in more than one GCE subject. This profile is likely to be supported by GCSE grades at 9-4/A*-C  (or equivalent).
  • Other related Level 3 qualifications
  • An Access to Higher Education Diploma awarded by an approved further education institution
  • Related work experience
  • An international equivalent of the above

We may also consider recognition of prior learning / attainment (RPL); this means that it may be possible to map some of your existing qualifications against the modules for the HNC Construction and The Built Environment and receive full or partial recognition against module learning outcomes. If this applies to you, we will discuss this with you at the interview stage.

International Entry Requirements:
For undergraduate courses, if you are an international student whose first language is not English we usually require you to attain a minimum of one of the following qualifications:

  • Common European Framework of Reference (CEFR) level B2
  • PTE 51
  • IELTS 5.5; Reading and Writing must be at 5.5 or equivalent.

We may be able to waive the language requirement if you can provide other evidence of your competence, such as having lived in an English-speaking country for a significant length of time. Decisions in such cases will be made on an individual basis according to the specific circumstances.

You could progress onto any construction related top-up degree (for example, BSc Construction Management). You could pursue a career as a construction professional involved in the estimating, planning, co-ordination, monitoring and control of either new-build or refurbishment projects.
