Uk Upper Second-Class Honours (2:1):
Bachelor degree (at least 4 years duration) with a First Division pass (65% or higher).
Bachelor degree (3 years’ duration) plus Master’s with 65% considered on a case-by-case basis

When submitting your application, please ensure that you upload copies of official transcripts for completed programmes as well as those currently in progress. Degree award certificates for programmes already complete should also be provided.
Sometimes, it may be possible to exercise flexibility in the case of applicants who have completed their degree with slightly lower grades than those outlined in their offer letter. In these cases, the decision will be at the discretion of the Academic Selector.
On completion of your degree, please forward a copy of your official transcript and award certificate to firstname.lastname@example.org to confirm the award of your qualification and the overall grade. Unfortunately, we cannot advise you further until we receive this documentation.
