What are the entry requirements?

Entry requirements are featured on each programme page: Degree programmes A‑Z

Adjusted offers

We want to help talented applicants from all backgrounds study at Glasgow so you may receive an offer with lower academic entry requirements conditional upon completion of one of our pre-entry programmes. See Access Glasgow for more information.

UCAS tariff points

The University does not frame its offers in terms of UCAS tariff points.

What do I need to know?

You will need to know the UCAS code for the subject or subject-combination that you wish to apply to. These are all listed in Degree programmes A‑Z

How soon will I receive a decision?

We will usually respond before the end of March 2016. If your qualifications meet our requirements and we believe you could benefit from study at Glasgow, you will receive an unconditional offer. If you haven’t yet gained the necessary passes for entry to your chosen subject(s), we may look at the qualifications you are taking when you apply and make you a conditional offer.

Will I be interviewed?

An interview is part of the selection process for some degree programmes. See individual entries for details. You may also be interviewed if you’re applying for entry into year 2 in any subject.

Is deferred entry available?

In Dentistry and Veterinary Medicine we are unable to consider applications for deferred entry. In other cases deferring may be possible but it’s not granted automatically.
