Apply for entry to second year
You can apply to enter the second year of many of our science, engineering, art and design degrees.
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.
Science and engineering
You can find details of the SQA Advanced Higher or GCE A Level grades required for entry to second-year listed in our degree finder against relevant degrees.
If you are studying for Higher National (HN) or other relevant qualifications, for example, International Baccalaureate or German Abitur, please contact us for advice on requirements.
