For all other degrees, we only consider applications for second-year entry in exceptional circumstances.

Consideration for first-year entry

If you have applied for second-year entry but you do not hold the necessary entry qualifications, your application will automatically be considered for first-year entry. This does not guarantee that you will receive an offer for first-year entry. 

What grades will I need?

You can find details of the SQA, A Level and IB grades required for entry to second year listed in our degree finder against relevant degrees.
