Advanced Entry

Advanced Entry

The University of Glasgow offers Advanced Entry for some of its programmes. Applicants who achieve exceptional grades in their Advanced Highers, A-levels or International Baccalaureate may be considered for Advanced Entry, meaning that an Honours degree can be completed in three years instead of the normal four years, or four years for five-year integrated Masters programmes. 

This list shows the degree programmes where this option exists. Indicative grades that must be attained in order to be considered are shown on programme pages. Applicants who require further information on this should contact the Admissions Team.

Faster Route

Faster Route

The University of Glasgow offers Faster Route for Computing Science and Software Engineering BSc and MSci.

Applicants to Computing Science or Software Engineering degrees who attain exceptional grades in their Advanced Highers, A-levels or International Baccalaureate 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.
