What qualifications will you need?
For access to the BSc Data Science and Business Analytics degree, you will usually meet the following criteria:
- Age 17+ by 30 November in the year of registration
- Satisfy our General Entrance Requirements
- Mathematics to UK GCE A Level (Grade A - E) or equivalent.
Even if you don’t meet the standard requirements, we will consider each application on its own merits. Our Admissions Panel will consider whether any alternative/incomplete qualifications or work experience you have are suitable for entry to the programme.
I don’t meet the entry requirements. What can I do?
If you are not eligible for this programme, you may be able to study the CertHE Social Sciences before progressing with credit. This programme must be studied at an approved local teaching centre.
Alternatively, you might be interested in our International Foundation Programme. This pre-university programme is equivalent in standard to qualifications studied in Year 13 (i.e. A levels) and must also be studied at an approved local teaching centre.
Graduate entry route
For graduate entry, you will need an acceptable undergraduate degree (e.g. bachelor) rather than a professional qualification, as well as the above Mathematics and English language requirements.
If you do not hold a UK GCE in Mathematics at grade A – E or the equivalent then we can still consider you if you have passed an acceptable level of Mathematics in your degree or in other qualifications. You can contact us before submitting your application for advice on whether you meet the Mathematics requirement.
English language requirements
You need to demonstrate a good level of English to be admitted to our programmes. We accept a range of evidence, including proficiency test scores. If you don’t have evidence but believe you can meet the standard, we may consider your case.
Do I meet the language requirements?
We set minimum basic computer requirements because your study resources are accessed via the Student Portal and it is vital that you can access this regularly. For this degree, you will also need Adobe Flash Player to view video material and a media player (such as VLC) to play video files.
