Please note these UCAS codes apply to applicants who wish to apply for Post A-Level German/Spanish or for beginners German/Spanish.
A Levels: ABB- BBB from 3 A-levels, including at least one of French, German or Spanish Grade B. General Studies accepted.
Applicants for beginners Spanish are not required to have any previous experience of language learning but we would anticipate that applicants receiving an offer would demonstrate a clear commitment to studying languages via the AS Personal Statement. Applicants with GCSE Spanish are welcome to apply for the ab initio programmes. Applicants with AS would normally be interviewed and may receive an offer for the ab initio programme or for the post A-Level programme depending on the level of language demonstrated at interview.
If your predicted grades are close to those stated in Aston's typical offers and if you are interested in Aston University and the courses we offer we encourage you to apply to us as one of your 5 UCAS choices. In addition to your predicted grades, when making offers we also consider your previous academic performance (eg AS grades, GCSEs), your school/college reference and the commitment and motivation you demonstrate for your chosen course via the personal statement. Applicants and their teachers/advisers are welcome to contact us with individual queries about entry qualifications via firstname.lastname@example.org.
