Alternative qualifications

We welcome applications from candidates offering qualifications other than A and AS levels (including BTEC, European Baccalaureate, International Baccalaureate, Irish Leaving Certificate and Scottish Highers). You will be expected to attain an equivalent standard to an A level applicant. Contact us for further information on equivalencies for these qualifications and others not listed here.

Please note that we cannot accept applicants from Greece on the basis of the Apolyterion alone; it must be supplemented by two A levels or an equivalent qualification.

International applications

We welcome applications from international students. Helpful information on applying, meeting a University representative in your country, and improving your English language if necessary can be found on the International Office website. If English is not your first language, you will be required to pass an approved English test. We normally ask for a score of IELTS 6.5.

Mature applicants

We welcome applications from mature students. If you will be over 21 at the start of your proposed degree programme, you are eligible for exemption from our normal entry requirements. However, you will be required to provide evidence of having completed recent serious and successful study (eg Access, Return to Study, Open University foundation courses), and of your capacity to pursue the course. Please note: due to the mathematical content of the courses at Southampton, you will be expected to have studied the appropriate level of mathematics relevant to the course.
