Entry Requirements

Entry requirements for courses are published on the Cardiff Metropolitan University website as well as UCAS and the Universities prospectus.

Entry criteria and procedures for selection are followed consistently and professionally by University staff involved in the admissions process. Applications however are considered on an individual basis considering all available information to ensure individual circumstances are taken into account, and offers can vary taking into account a range of experiences and expertise.

Guidance for international qualifications is taken from staff within our Regional Officers, Recruitment Officers and UK NARIC Home Page (ecctis.com).

For undergraduate applicants the University understands that predicted grades are an estimate. We will consider applicants with predicted grades that fall below the published entry criteria taking all the information on the application into consideration.

Previous study, work experience and training can also count as credit towards your programme of study, this is known as Recognising Prior Learning (RPL) and please refer to the section on Prior Learning. We encourage students of all ages and from all backgrounds to study with us and know that significant achievement can be obtained through work or private study.

The University guarantees not to change its entry requirements published on course pages on Cardiff Met’s website and UCAS for courses during an Admissions cycle from September to September. Entry requirements however may change for undergraduate applicants applying through clearing.

Entry requirements are reviewed annually by the Recruitment and Admissions Strategy Group which includes input from Academic Schools, Admissions and Planning.  Any changes to entry requirements are updated in the September before the year of entry. ​
