Entry requirements

Entry requirements will differ by university, but the general entry standard is:

    • 280 - 400 UCAS points (A*A*A - BBC depending on the course and university), including maths and chemistry, or
    • Scottish Advanced Highers in maths and chemistry along with at least two other Highers, or
    • typically 400 points in the Irish Leaving Certificate including at least a grade C3 in higher level maths, or

Direct entry to the second year at Scottish Universities may be possible with appropriate A-levels, Advanced Highers, or equivalent.

Some universities offer foundation courses to students without the traditional entry subjects. You can find details entry requirements on the universities' websites, or use this document as a guide.
