CAO Requirements

Do I qualify?

Check the entry requirements carefully, and only apply for programmes you are likely to qualify for. For example, if a programme specifies Maths at level 3 (or Higher Grade E) you definitely will not be considered if you are writing Maths Literacy (or have written Maths on Standard Grade). If your results are better than the minimum specified, the institution will be delighted to consider your application.

Check out all the different options very carefully. Different institutions have different entry requirements for similar programmes.

There are alternative access routes to many of the programmes listed. Access programmes are designed to assist those from disadvantaged schools who do not meet the entry requirements. You will find full details in `Alternative access routes’

If you are over 23 years old and do not meet the entry requirements, please contact the institution to check whether they have a Mature Age entry route.
