The typical offer is likely to be:
SQA Highers: ABBB, or more if two sittings, to include two from Biology, Chemistry, Mathematics and Physics and must include either Biology or Chemistry. Standard Grade Biology, Mathematics and Chemistry at Grade 2. Qualified applicants are strongly advised to take Biology and Chemistry at Advanced Higher level where possible.
GCE A Levels: ABB, required in one sitting, to include two from Biology, Chemistry, Mathematics and Physics and must include either Biology or Chemistry. GCSE Mathematics at Grade B and either Biology and Chemistry or Science and an additional science at Grade B.
IB: 32 points overall and award of IB Diploma to include Biology at Higher Level (HL) Grade 5 and one of Mathematics HL, Chemistry HL or Physics HL at Grade 5 or above, plus one further HL subject at Grade 5. The diploma should include Mathematics and Chemistry Standard Level, if not held at HL.
All applicants must also meet our general university entry requirements - including SQA, GCSE, or equivalent English language requirements.
For direct entry to second year the minimum requirements must be exceeded, including the following:
SQA Advanced Highers: Biology, Chemistry and either Mathematics or Physics at grades AAA.
GCE A Levels: Biology, Chemistry and either Mathematics or Physics at grades A*AA in one sitting.
IB: 38 points overall and award of IB Diploma to include Biology Higher Level at Grade 6, Chemistry Higher Level at Grade 6 and one additional Higher Level subject at Grade 6. Diploma must include Mathematics Standard Level Grade 6.
Entry to many degrees in Science & Engineering is possible via other qualifications (eg HNC/D, Access, SWAP).
Neuroscience is the study of the nervous system, how the brain works and how brain cells interact to control behaviour. A Neuroscience degree includes courses such as Neuroscience with Pharmacology and Brain & Behaviour and will give you an insight into molecular and cellular biology techniques. The degree includes neural circuitry investigations and clinical work on patients with various types of cerebral pathology.
