This policy applies to admissions to all foundation, undergraduate, postgraduate taught and postgraduate research programmes.
Aston University makes conditional offers to the vast majority of UCAS applicants each year (typically 80%) including those students who are predicted one or two grades lower than our entry requirements. If your predicted and expected grades are close to those stated in Aston's typical offers and if you are keen on Aston University and the courses we offer we encourage you to apply to us as one of your 5 UCAS choices.
UCAS forms are considered by the Admissions Tutor. If you are made a conditional/unconditional offer you will be invited to a post-application open day where you can meet staff, students and see the campus.
When making offers the criteria includes:
Past performance: eg AS grades, GCSE
Evidence of commitment and motivation via the personal statement
Interview performance (if required in a small numberof cases).
Each course page on our website lists typical offers and specific requirements.
