Entry Requirements

Entry Requirements; students taking exam

At Aberystwyth University, we outline our entry requirements on every course online and in our prospectus.

The reason why we have entry requirements on our course is to ensure that you have the right skills and knowledge to successfully complete the course. Our entry requirements vary widely depending on the subject and/or the specific course. As a university, we have an inclusive policy which recognises a broad range of qualifications and exam grades from A-Level and/or equivalent-level qualifications.
