    Entry Requirements

    We encourage anyone interested in studying psychology to enquire, we are interested in hearing from all potential applicants. We have a high quality, engaging degree programme and want students who want to engage with what we have to offer and flourish within our unique teaching model.

    The standard entry requirements for psychology are 128 – 112 UCAS Tarif points (A-level ABB-BBC or equivalent).

    Applications to Buckingham are considered on an individual basis by the University Admissions Office. Many factors are taken into account so if you have a different educational and work experience please contact us and talk to our admissions team.

    Applicants with BTEC and similar qualifications are welcome to apply, including if you have a mix of BTEC and A levels. We also accept a wide range of international qualifications including International Baccalaureate. You can use the UCAS website to calculate your tariff points to find out what your qualifications are or will be worth.

    Where an applicant is taking the EPQ alongside A-levels, the EPQ will be taken into consideration and result in slightly lower A-level grades being required.

    Applicants must also have GCSE English and Maths at Grade C / Grade 4, or above (or equivalent).

    If English is not your first language you will also need an IELTS score of 6.5, with at least 6.0 in each component. Pre-sessional and foundation options are also available to support English Language competency and preparation for Higher Education study.

    Foundation options are also available. Please contact the Admissions Office. You can call on +44 (0)1280 820227 or get in touch using our contact form for more information.

    Selection process

    The Admissions Team will work to ensure you are provided with an offer as quickly as possible given your educational qualifications, work experience and personal statement. Some candidates may be invited to attend an interview before they are made an offer, but this is so that we can help you to establish whether Buckingham is a good fit for you. These interviews can be done remotely via Teams or Zoom.

    Mature Home students (over 21) may be given an offer to study at the University based on their experience, together with any formal qualifications they hold. Mature International students will be offered the same opportunities as home students.

    Our Admissions Office will be happy to answer any questions you may have. Call on +44 (0)1280 820227 or email: admissions@buckingham.ac.uk.
