Entry Requirements

Hospitality and Culinary Arts
Entry Requirement
This course is suitable for students aged 21 or over. Applicants aged 19 or 20 will also be considered if you have experience outside full-time education, for example through work or travel. Applicants will be assessed through application, interview and tests in English and Maths. Applicants are expected to have some experience of voluntary or paid work in a Hospitality or Tourism setting.
 
For International students, you will need to have completed your secondary school education to apply for the one year Access to Higher Education Diploma. You will also need to have an IELTS score of 5.5 with no skill below 5.0, or equivalent English qualification. International students will be assessed on application through an online interview process which will take into consideration all of your education achievements and relevant work experience.  
 
GCSE requirements for Access applicants:
In order to progress to certain Higher Education courses, you may require GCSE English and/or GCSE Maths to fulfil your university entry requirements. Ideally you will already have GCSE Maths and English at grade A*-C.  However we understand that not all students meet this requirement and so you will be considered for an Access course if you have one GCSE at grade A*-C in Maths or English and the other at grade D. A GCSE or functional skills course will be offered as an additional option for the Access course - please note that some GCSE classes may be delivered in the evening.  If you don't have any GCSEs or equivalent qualifications then we will be able to recommend you for another course based on the results of your initial assessment at interview.
All fees will be confirmed when you enrol onto your course. All students are fee assessed at enrolment
