BTEC Entry Requirements

Queen Mary University of London welcomes applications from students currently studying Level 3 BTEC qualifications and will consider you for entry to the majority of our undergraduate courses. The typical entry requirements will vary according to the course you are applying for.

Some of our courses require specific subject knowledge which you may not be able to cover as part of a Level 3 BTEC qualification and we may therefore require additional Level 3 qualifications to ensure that you are suitably prepared for relevant courses. A small number of our courses do not accept BTEC qualifications for entry, either as a standalone qualification, or in combination with other qualifications at Level 3.

Information on our typical entry requirements and guidance for applying can be found below. If you are at all unsure about the acceptability of your BTEC qualification for entry, please contact the Admissions team for individual advice (admissions@qmul.ac.uk).

Our guidance for students studying BTEC Qualifications is split according to which BTEC specification you are following. Guidance for students who have studied or are studying BTEC Nationals (RQF) (from 2016) can be found directly below. Guidance for students who have studied QCF BTEC Nationals (from 2010) can be found here

BTEC Nationals (RQF) (from 2016)

BTEC Level 3 National Extended Diploma (RQF) (from 2016)

We will consider this qualification for entry to most courses and expect the BTEC Level 3 National Extended Diploma to be in a subject area relevant to the course being applied for. If you are at all unsure whether your BTEC subject will be considered for your chosen degree course, please contact the Admissions team for individual advice (admissions@qmul.ac.uk)

Applicants will typically be expected to achieve a minimum overall requirement of DDM for entry to the first year of a Bachelor’s degree, but we expect to specify higher requirements for a number of courses.

In addition to specifying the overall grade to be achieved, each course will typically specify a range of units to be achieved at Distinction and/or Merit – this will usually include mandatory units and may include optional units, depending on the BTEC qualification you are taking.

Some courses will also have additional A-level and GCSE requirements that must also be met. Where this is the case, we will clearly specify this in your offer of study. GCSE requirements for individual undergraduate courses can be found via the Course Finder.

Specific BTEC Level 3 National Extended Diploma Entry Requirements for your chosen course of study can be found below.
