Cardiff University will consider every application on its individual merit. We are looking for students with the potential to succeed and we are happy to consider a wide range of qualifications and achievements. All of our undergraduate degree programmes have specific entry requirements and the Admissions Tutor will be looking for evidence that you have achieved the necessary academic and non academic criteria for your chosen programme of study.
Typical offers in Coursefinder are generally stated in terms of A-levels. However, we welcome applications from those offering alternative qualifications. In many cases, typical offers for these qualifications are listed in our admissions criteria. We will also consider applications from those with combinations of qualifications and those with other relevant life/work experience.
Each academic school publishes detailed criteria that provide you with more information about entry requirements, typical offers and selection criteria. You are advised to consult the criteria for both academic schools if you are applying for a joint honours programme.
Each academic school has Admissions Tutors who are able to give applicants guidance. Contact details are listed in each course profile.
Admissions Framework: Principles, Policies and Procedures
Most of our academic schools will consider applications from those wishing to defer entry for a year. We ask that this be clearly indicated, with your reasons for deferral, on your application. For professional and vocational programmes of study, it can also be helpful to outline any relevant work experience you will be undertaking in your gap year.
All overseas applicants whose first language is not English must have a standard of written and spoken English that will enable them to benefit fully from their course of study.
