Entry requirements for study at the University of Southampton vary by course, although a broad range of qualifications are accepted when the university is considering applicants.
Many students who apply for the university will come via A levels or Scottish Highers, but a wide variety of qualifications are accepted: AS levels, Advanced Highers, Welsh Baccalaureate, the International Baccalaureate Diploma, Access to HE Diplomas, BTEC’s and many European and international qualifications. Some courses will require specific subjects to have been studied previously.
On most courses, applicants with an EPQ will be made two offers: the typical offer based on three A-levels and an alternative where in exchange for an A or A* in the EPQ, the A-level requirements will be reduced by one grade. Applicants who meet either of the two offers when they receive their results will have their place at UoS confirmed.
Students who wish to attend university as an undergraduate mature student or are under 18 should get in touch with the university’s admissions team to discuss potential entry requirements based on relevant experience if they don’t have the necessary formal qualifications.
The university is committed to widening participation and ensuring that all students with the potential to succeed, regardless of their background, are encouraged to apply to study at UoS.
The relevant entry requirements can be found on the individual course pages on the university’s website.UCAS TARIFF CALCULATOR
