Link agreements

Our University has in place a number of link agreements which support the admission of students to study with us through progression arrangements. These arrangements specify the study that a student needs to have successfully completed and passed at their home institution prior to being admitted to a course with us. All applications are judged on an individual basis and must meet the academic and English language entry requirements for the course.

To check which institutions we currently have link agreements with please contact our Partnerships team.
