Diploma de Bacalaureat

We welcome applications from students with the Diploma de Bacalaureat.

The information below provides a summary of the minimum entry requirements required by each of the three Colleges within the University. The final decision to offer you a place will be taken with reference to the whole UCAS application, including academic grades, personal statement and academic reference. Having the minimum academic requirements does not guarantee the offer of a place but rather ensures entry to the selection process. For some degree programmes, relevant work experience will be required.

Subject specific requirements

For many degree programmes, we will expect you to have studied specific subjects within the Diploma de Bacalaureat. Where we ask applicants taking Scottish Qualifications Authority (SQA) Highers for a specific subject(s) we will normally ask you for the same subject(s) in the Diploma de Bacalaureat. Specific subject requirements at SQA Higher for each degree programme can be found at the beginning of each subject entry via the online degree finder. Details of the grades required for the Diploma de Bacalaureat can be found below.
