Advanced Entry / Faster Route

If you have exceptional A-level, Advanced Higher or International Baccalaureate grades it’s possible to gain exemption from Year 1 study and enter directly into Year 2 or follow a faster route advanced entry programme, both of which allow you to complete your degree in one year less than usual. This would allow the completion of a standard Honours degree (MA, MA (SocSci) and BSc) within three years and a standard MSci or MEng degree within four years. This does not apply to all degree programmes or subjects.

Applicants who attain exceptional grades may apply for Faster Route. Attending additional classes enables the four-year BSc Honours degree programme to be condensed into three years, or the five-year MSci degree programme into four years.

Unique Faster Route Computing UCAS codes should be used when submitting applications. In the event that we are unable to accept your Faster Route application, but you meet the year 1 entry requirements, you will automatically be made an offer without needing to submit an additional application.
