2021 Admissions Policy

The following details the University’s undergraduate admissions policy for the 2020/21 application cycle, commencing 8 September 2020. It describes the approach we will take when considering your application to commence undergraduate study in September 2021, or if deferred, September 2022.

This year’s approach differs from previous admissions policies, adapted to take account of the impact of Covid-19 on education in Scotland, the rest of the UK and around the world, and any consequences it has on your certified attainment during 2020 and 2021.

Whilst it may mean the type (Conditional, Unconditional) and timing of any offer we make may be different this year, it aims to provide fairness and flexibility for all applicants. It will also allow the University to consider all aspects of admission when considering applications. 

+++

General principles

  • The Entry Requirement section of each undergraduate subject page states the cumulative / final grades (and subjects if mandatory) required to be considered for an offer. Any Additional Requirements (interviews, auditions, tests, pre-entry programmes) are also stated. These will be confirmed in any Conditional offer we make. 
  • We publish Scottish Highers, Adjusted Scottish Highers (for eligible Widening Participation applicants), A-Levels and International Baccalaureate (IB) Entry Requirements on each undergraduate subject page, accessed via the Degree Programme A-Z.
  • National European and other International qualification Entry Requirements can all be accessed from the applicable country page. 
  • If there is more than one possible degree type outcome for that subject, e.g, MA, MA (SocSci), BSc, the Entry Requirements for each type will be stated.
  • The Entry Requirement information on the subject pages, together with any below detail relevant to you, your application, qualifications and circumstances, will determine how we will consider your application.
  • There are two types of offer we can make:
    • Unconditional, meaning you already meet / exceed our published requirements, and you have a place of study if you choose to accept it
    • Conditional, meaning we still need you to meet specified conditions to be eligible for the offer of a place of study.
    • We will review all aspects of your application and apply flexibility when circumstances allow, however it will be unsuccessful if we are unable to make you an offer.

Timing

The deadline for submitting your application is stated in the How to apply section of the relevant subject page. Upon receipt, we will review your application to assess your eligibility for an offer. 

It is your responsibility to submit a complete and accurate application on time. We do not consider late applications received after the deadline relevant to you and your degree programme choice.

Please note, depending on your circumstances, we may not issue immediate offers or rejections during this application year. 

Instead, we may wait until we have reviewed all applications received by the 15 January 2021 deadline.

If this applies to you, we will advise you of our decision timing in your application acknowledgement.

There are exceptions to this “no immediate offer” approach:

  • Priority 1 and Priority 2 Widening Participation applicants are guaranteed an offer, based on achieving our Adjusted Entry Requirements. Where we can, we will issue these prior to the January 15th application deadline. For more information, see the Widening Participation detail below.
  • Highly qualified applicants (Scottish, Rest of UK and International) who apply for specific degree programmes and are either predicted, or already meet / exceed our entry requirements, may be considered for an offer prior to the January 15th application deadline.

Scottish Highers

The SQA Higher Entry Requirements & Adjusted Entry Requirements for each subject can be found on that subject page in the degree programme A-Z.

S5 and S6 Highers Entry Requirements

  • Where stated, the S5 Entry Requirements are a guide to the minimum grades required by the end of S5 to be considered for an offer. The S6 Entry Requirements represent the cumulative / final grades required by the end of S6 to be considered for an offer.
  • Applicants must also meet any Additional Requirements listed (subject requirements / admissions tests / work experience / interviews / pre-entry programme) in order to be considered. 
  • All students must have obtained at least four different Highers.

Advanced Highers

  • Most subjects do not require Advanced Highers but check the Entry Requirements for the subject(s) you are interested in.
  • Where a degree programme requires Advanced Higher(s), these must be met as specified.
  • For programmes where Advanced Higher(s) are not required in the stated Entry Requirements, we allow ‘double counting’ of Highers and Advanced Highers in the same subject when calculating cumulative grades.
  • Grades ‘A’ and ‘B’ at Advanced Higher level will count as a grade ‘A’ at Higher level
  • Grade ‘C’ at Advanced Higher level will count as a grade ‘B’ at Higher level
  • Conditions included in any Conditional offer will have already made this grade adjustment so offer requirements must be met as stated.

Additional Requirements

Additional Requirements are stated for each subject and degree type and will be confirmed in your offer.

The lists below show all the Higher and Advanced Higher qualifications currently offered by the SQA and indicates the University of Glasgow subject entry requirement classification for each subject:

It also details any additional entry requirements: such as SQA Highers. HNC / HND Entry Requirements
  • The majority of HN entrants enter Year 1 of undergraduate study.
  • All HN applicants are required to attend and pass a University Summer School. This will be a condition of any offer made.
  • In addition, we are working with Colleges to develop specific HN pathways into Year 2 of degrees in Life Sciences, Engineering and Social Sciences at our Glasgow campus, and programmes at our Dumfries campus. See Widening Participation for more details.

Alternative qualifications

Foundation Apprenticeships

Foundation Apprenticeships will be accepted as equivalent to one additional Higher- Grade subject for applicants to degree programmes in Arts, Languages, Social Sciences, Science, Life Sciences, Engineering and Accountancy. They are not accepted for entry to Law, Medicine, Dentistry or Vet Medicine. 

Scottish Baccalaureate

The University welcomes and recognises the value of the Scottish Baccalaureate and the Interdisciplinary Project. Offers will be based on the individual Highers and Advanced Highers components within it. Additional Highers may also be required at B or above.

Welsh Baccalaureate

The University welcomes and recognises the value of the Welsh Baccalaureate and the Core. The Advanced Diploma with a pass in the Core and two A-levels is accepted for many programmes. 

Extended Project and Advanced Extension Awards

We welcome the use of the Extended Project Qualification (EPQ) and, in Mathematics, the Advanced Extension Awards (AEA) as a means of challenging students and encouraging an interdisciplinary approach to learning, preparing students for a successful higher education experience. However, we recognise that not all students have equal opportunity to access them, so we do not require them for entry and the EPQ/AEA are not accepted as an A-level equivalent.

Cambridge Pre-U Diploma

We welcome applicants offering the Cambridge Pre-U Diploma. Combinations of individual Pre-U subjects and A-level subjects are acceptable if three subjects are offered overall. Typical offers are likely to require two subjects at minimum D3 and one at M2. 

UCAS tariff points

Whilst the University does not frame its offers in terms of UCAS tariff points, it may review UCAS tariff points, as well as information in your Personal Statement and Reference, to inform admission decisions for highly competitive subjects.


International (non-EU) students

The University welcomes applications and students from all over the world.

We do accept many national school qualifications, including SAT & AP if applying from the USA, and CICSE or CBSE if applying from India. A range of Foundation programmes are also available via Glasgow International College.

Age of qualifications

The University requires applicants to have participated in study within an appropriate time period prior to being admitted to an academic programme. 

All applications are considered on a case by case basis to ensure you are prepared for a successful transition into university study.

If your qualifications are considered to be out with an appropriate time period for your choice of programme, you may seek entry through an alternative route such as the University's Access courses (see Short Courses: Access Coursess), or the Scottish Wider Access Programme (SWAP).  


Resits

Some clinical subjects require attainment of published entry requirements in one exam sitting, i.e. the same exam year.  If this is the case, it will be detailed or linked to the relevant subject page in the degree programme A-Z

In all other cases, we will consider your application on a case by case basis, including the circumstances and duration attaining the specified entry requirements.


Graduate applicants

The University of Glasgow welcomes applicants to undergraduate degree programmes who have already completed an undergraduate degree. 

Attainment of an undergraduate degree does not on its own guarantee admission to another degree programme and it is advisable to have recent academic experience. 

The following criteria will be considered when reviewing graduate applications:

  • Applicants must have attained a minimum of a 2:2 (Lower second class) honours degree; AND / OR
  • Would have met the current year (year of admission) entry qualifications prior to being admitted to their current degree programme.

The selection process for Law involves the LNAT (Law National Aptitude Test).

For more information, contact the relevant specialised Admissions Team:


University transfer

As a general rule, the University does not accept applications from UK students to transfer from another institution. 

Exceptions will be made only if it can be proven that a student who is currently living away from home needs to return to their home city due to significant personal problems such as family or personal illness, bereavement or other circumstances. 

These situations will be considered on a case by case basis and documentary evidence, such as medical reports, will be required. 

Regardless, all applications from students currently studying at another Higher Education Institution must be made through UCAS and applicants must meet the SQA Higher or A level entry requirements to be considered for an offer. Any offer is likely to be to Year 1 of study.

For applicants to the School of Medicine, please see School of Medicine Admissions.


Extenuating circumstances

The University of Glasgow Admissions Policy sets entry requirements that must be achieved for entry on to a degree programme. This applies to all qualifications, from all countries and exam bodies.

Exceptions to this policy will be considered, where there are genuine extenuating circumstances, which may include, amongst other things, family bereavement, applicant illness, serious illnesses within the family or other significant family or personal circumstances. 

Any extraneous or extenuating circumstance should be notified to the University as part of the application process, via email direct to the Admissions Department, and/or inclusion in the UCAS application (explicit reference in the personal statement or school reference). 

Extraneous/Extenuating circumstances will not be considered after submission of the application (or any rejection made by the University), unless it can be proven that the relevant event occurred during that specific time period.

Where extenuating circumstances have been appropriately notified to the University, the following process will apply:

  1. The Admissions Department will request appropriate documentary evidence to be provided. This may include letters from GP's, Consultants, Social Work Department, Schools or Colleges.
  2. Upon receipt of appropriate documentary evidence, a regular panel will consider specific cases. The panel will include representation from Admissions and Widening Participation and will decide:
    1. If the extraneous/extenuating circumstance should be upheld; AND
    2. If the extraneous/extenuating circumstances are upheld, what alternative offers should be made to the applicant.

For applicants to the School of Medicine, please see School of Medicine Admissions.


Personal Statements and References

We consider all information within the UCAS application when making our admissions decisions. This will include evidence in your personal statement and your supporting reference regarding your readiness for higher education, and your suitability for your chosen degree programme. 

If you are applying to a professional or vocational degree programme, your personal statement should demonstrate a clear understanding of the profession.

This should be supported by, for example, evidence of any work experience or work shadowing, as well as wider achievements such as volunteering or community work. We do recognise that not all applicants have equal access to such opportunities.

Offers will only be made to applicants if they meet all the necessary entrance requirements.


Part-time study

Our flexible degrees are designed to allow part-time students access to a wide range of Arts or Science subjects and ultimately graduate with a MA Arts or BSc Science degree from the University of Glasgow.

We are unable to offer part-time degrees in the following subjects: Accountancy & Finance, Dentistry, Engineering, Film & Television Studies, Law, Medicine, Nursing, Psychology, Veterinary Biosciences, Veterinary Medicine. OR in any of the Social Sciences MA (SocSci) degrees.

Course delivery

The individual courses which make up the degree programme follow the timetable undertaken by the full-time undergraduate students, and part-time students attend the same on-campus lectures, tutorials or practical sessions. 

Part-time study is study by day and will require attendance on several days of the week.

Commitment and timeframe

An Honours degree normally takes a full-time student 4 years to complete and can be completed in as few as 6 years by a part-time student.

Full-time students’ study 120 credits per year, and all students are required to complete a total of 240 credits before commencing honours studies:

  • Science part-time students are expected to commit to 80 credits per year for the first three years and then progress to full-time studies to complete the final two years of honours.
  • Arts students have much greater flexibility, and a part-time student can take between 20 and 80 credits per year. The structure of the degree is discussed with the Advising Team in the College of Arts and an agreed programme of study set out.

For further advice on Arts degrees, you may contact the Advising Team

Entry Requirements

Entry requirements for part-time students are the same as full-time students, available on the relevant subject webpage.

If you would like us to consider any additional qualification, then please contact ugadmissions@glasgow.ac.uk 

It is advisable to have recent academic experience so if you feel you need to update your qualification in preparation for degree studies, we recommend that you consider an Access programme or relevant credit bearing courses offered by Short Courses  at the University. 

See Short Courses: Access courses or the Scottish Wider Access Programme (SWAP).

Fees & Funding 

Tuition fees are charged annually and based on the number of credits studied.  Further details regarding tuition charges are available at:

For information regarding the Part-time Fee Grant, administered by SAAS, see:

How to apply

Applying for a part-time degree is made directly to the University and not through UCAS. 

The closing date for applications is 31 July the year preceding the start of the academic session in September.  

If you would like to check whether your qualifications would gain you entry to part-time study prior to applying, please contact: ugadmissions@glasgow.ac.uk.

 


Criminal Convictions Policy

The majority of programmes do not require a declaration of criminal convictions at the point of application. 

However, it is a requirement for you to undergo a criminal record check for specific professional / clinical subjects, under the protection of vulnerable groups (PVG) scheme.  

If this is the case, it will be clearly stated on the subject page in the degree programme A-Z.


Deferred entry

We are unable to consider applications for deferred entry for Dentistry, Nursing and Veterinary Medicine programmes. 

In other subjects, deferring may be possible but is not granted automatically.

For applicants to the School of Medicine, please see School of Medicine Admissions.


Applicants with disabilities

The University welcomes applications from individuals with disabilities or special needs. 

Please ensure you provide details of your condition(s) when applying through UCAS.

We also advise you contact the University’s Disability Service to explore any potential support that may be available.


Exam re-marks/appeals

If we make a Conditional offer to you, the conditions must be met at the first publication of results.

Different practices exist in each country, whereby exam papers may be re-marked and/or appeals submitted by students (or their schools on their behalf).

The University will consider each situation individually and is open to accepting re-marked papers or appeals. However, priority will be given to applicants who meet their conditions without re-marks / appeals, with the latter being accepted or offered deferred entry, dependent upon whether sufficient places are available. 

In usual circumstances, we do not consider an appeal or re-mark after 31 August, however we will be flexible should there be Covid-19 related disruption to 2021 examinations and result confirmation.


Previous study at the University of Glasgow

Applicants who have previously studied at the University of Glasgow and did not complete their studies for any reason (academic performance, ill-health, conduct, or any other reason) must declare this in their Personal Statement.

This declaration will help ensure that the underlying reason for the non-completion of studies is fully investigated by the Admissions Department and a balanced admissions decision is taken thereafter. 

Failure to declare previous study would be deemed a 'material breach' resulting in the student being withdrawn from the University.


Changes to entry requirements or admissions policies

The University tries to avoid making changes to Entrance Requirements or Admissions policy and process during an 'Admissions Cycle'. 

However, and for solely Covid-19 related reasons, we reserve the right to update this 2020/21 policy and entry requirements. 

We endeavour to finalise all of our entry requirements on our website by early September for admission to the University the following September. 

This approach is designed to ensure applicants are aware of our entry requirements by the start of their final year at school or college. Some changes may take place during early autumn, but all will be completed by the end of September in the year preceding entry.

Applicants are advised to continually monitor our website to ensure they have the most up to date information. Advice provided by the Admissions Department (or other communications) which relate to Entry Requirements or policies in place for a prior year, will be superseded by any website changes.
