Supporting access to general subjects

‌As you progress through school the support we offer becomes more focused on supporting your application and admission into University or College.

The Senior Phase of CfE in S4-S6 is a busy and challenging time however by successfully completing some extra work, you can benefit from adjusted entry requirements which reduce the grades we would normally ask for in our offers.

We provide support for your entry into our general degree programmes in the Colleges of Arts, Social Sciences, Science and Engineering as well as the College of Medicine, Veterinary Medicine and Life Sciences.

Our Top-Up and Summer School programmes are two of the longest running, well established and respected pre-entry programmes in Scotland, recognised by every other Scottish University, who may consider your participation in either when they look at your application.

Successful completion of a pre-entry programme will ensure that you're well prepared to start University, continue and succeed.

If you want to do a professional degree (Medicine, Dentistry, Veterinary Medicine, Law, Education, Engineering, Accountancy & Finance) in one of our Colleges, there are specific programmes that can help you; see Supporting Access to Professional Subjects.
