This programme is intended to cater for those who aspire to enrol on a health science based honours degree within the Cardiff School of Health Sciences, who have not achieved the required number of A-level points (A2 or their equivalent). It is also suitable for those who have studied A-level subjects (or their equivalent) in areas that do not provide the necessary background within the scientific disciplines required for the chosen Honours degree programme.
This programme is also intended to widen access and participation for ‘return to learning’ students who wish to embark upon a Science based honours degree.
Applicants should normally have five GCSEs including Mathematics, Science and English Language (or Welsh First Language) plus one of the following:
- 120 points from at least 2 A-Level qualifications or their equivalent at an appropriate standard for entry into Higher Education at Year 1, but in subject areas which fail to meet the entry requirements for their intended undergraduate degree programme.
- 120 points from at least 2 A-Level qualifications or their equivalent in subject areas relevant for their intended undergraduate degree programme, but at a standard which fails to meet the entry requirements to Higher Education at Year 1.
