For all creative computing degrees, you will need a certain amount of UCAS tariff points which can be achieved by A Levels or equivalent qualifications. Each course page details the entry requirements for that particular course. Grade 4/C in GCSE English and Mathematics (or equivalent) are normally required for each of our courses. If you don't meet your tariff points total we may still consider your application so it is always worth contacting us if you are not sure.
