    ADDITIONAL ENTRY REQUIREMENTS

Entry on to the courses may be subject to the following additional requirements:

    Faculty of Advanced Technology

Department of Computing and Mathematical Science

Generally, for University of Glamorgan students, the established admissions route

    after finishing a HND programme would be for the student to progress to the third

    year. The third year comprises of one term up to December of taught modules

    followed by work experience/placement until the end of June. If work

    experience/placement is not undertaken students complete a number of CISCO

    recognised modules instead. Finally students proceed to the fourth and last year of

    study in order to obtain a degree. It is therefore not possible for students to obtain a

    degree until having completed a fourth year.

Department of Electronics and Computer Systems Engineering

Generally, for University of Glamorgan students, the established admissions route to

    the third year of the Departments’ course is initially to an unclassified degree course.

    The honours qualification is an additional top-up which is attained later.

Direct entry to BEng third year is not possible under accreditation rules except for

    specially accredited routes.

The Department can only accept students with good Edexcel HND qualifications onto a

    non-honours degree course, of which there are many in the Department. Students who

    wish to gain honours would have to study an additional 60 credits after successfully

    gaining a non-honours degree. It should therefore be made absolutely clear that

    applicants will only be accepted onto the non-honours courses as to do otherwise could

    result in considerable misunderstanding and dissatisfied students in the future.

    Department of Engineering

Direct entry to a final year course is not always possible within the Department.

    BSc (Hons) Mechanical Engineering: The Department already has students following this route from HND to BSc (Hons). In

    most cases the Department requires these students to study an additional Maths

    module concurrent with their year three studies. This is exactly the same model as

    the Department uses with our University of Glamorgan students and other UK based

    students.

    BSc (Hons) Civil Engineering: For the Honours award, students first need to complete bridging modules totalling 40

    credits at HE level 5. 80 credits at HE level 6 are then taken during the remainder of

    the academic year, with the final 40 HE level 6 credits being studied through the

    summer vacation period for the honours award.

    A.Sampson 8/09

    Glamorgan Business School

    It should be noted that entry onto Level 3 of the Accounting and Finance Degree would

    have pre-requisites at Level 2. Therefore the implication of this might have to be

    considered if a student were able to apply for this course.

    Faculty of Health, Sport and Sciences

    Generally the established admission criteria would be MMP (Merit, Merit, Pass)/DM

    (Distinction Merit) etc plus IELTS 6.5 English Language qualification or equivalent.

    Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences

    Generally the established admission criteria would be an overall merit profile plus

    IELTS 6.5 English Language qualification.

    The Cardiff School of Creative and Cultural Industries

    Generally the established admission criteria would be an overall merit profile plus

    IELTS 6.5 English Language qualification.

    General

    Some courses might require English language ability (TOEIC).

    The University has the final decision whether to accept or decline an application.
