How can I apply?

You don’t need to apply. If you choose Aberystwyth and join us in September 2024 and you achieve the following results then you will automatically receive the award:

  • Grades AAA at A-level*;
  • DDD in the BTEC Level 3 Extended Diploma;
  • 34 points in the International Baccalaureate;
  • A range of additional qualifications are also considered (as long as they appear on the UCAS Tariff Table).

*Grade A in the Welsh Baccalaureate Advanced Diploma, to include the Advanced Skills Challenge Certificate, may be accepted in lieu of one of the A-level grades.

Please note that the minimum grades as noted above must be achieved (ie we are unable to accept anything less than an A grade at A level or a Distinction grade at BTEC level 3).  The best 3 qualifications are considered, which may be a mix of A level and BTEC grades.
