Important Information

Whilst the University will make every effort to offer the modules listed, changes may sometimes be made arising from the annual monitoring, review and update of modules. Where this activity leads to significant (but not minor) changes to programmes and their constituent modules, the University will endeavour to consult with students and others. It is also possible that the University may not be able to offer a module for reasons outside of its control, such as the illness of a member of staff. In some cases optional modules can have limited places available and so you may be asked to make additional module choices in the event you do not gain a place on your first choice. Where this is the case, the University will inform students.

You are required to have Mathematics and English Language at a minimum of Grade C or Grade 4 or above at GCSE.

Additional entry requirements

A-Level General Studies and Critical Thinking are not accepted.   

We welcome applications from students with non-traditional academic backgrounds.  If you have been out of study for the last three years and you do not have the entry grades for our three year degree, we will consider your educational and employment history, along with your personal statement and reference to gain a holistic view of your suitability for the course. You will still need to meet our GCSE English Language and Mathematics requirements.

If you are currently studying your level 3 qualifications, we may be able to give you a reduced grade offer based on these circumstances:

• You live in an area with low progression to higher education (we use Polar 4, quintile 1 & 2 data)

• You live in an area with low progression to higher education (we use Polar 4, quintile 1 & 2 data)

• You will be 21 years of age or over at the start of the course

• You have been in care or you are a young full time carer

• You are studying at a school which our Outreach Team are working closely with

 

Alternative Qualifications

UEA recognises that some students take a mixture of International Baccalaureate IB or International Baccalaureate Career-related Programme IBCP study rather than the full diploma, taking Higher levels in addition to A levels and/or BTEC qualifications. At UEA we do consider a combination of qualifications for entry, provided a minimum of three qualifications are taken at a higher Level. In addition some degree programmes require specific subjects at a higher level.

Students for whom english is a foreign language

Applications from students whose first language is not English are welcome. We require evidence of proficiency in English (including writing, speaking, listening and reading):

  • IELTS: 6.5 overall (minimum 5.5 in all components)

We also accept a number of other English language tests. Please click here to see our full list.

Interviews

Most applicants will not be called for an interview and a decision will be made via UCAS Track. However, for some applicants an interview will be requested. Where an interview is required the Admissions Service will contact you directly to arrange a time.

 

Gap year

We welcome applications from students who have already taken or intend to take a gap year.  We believe that a year between school and university can be of substantial benefit. You are advised to indicate your reason for wishing to defer entry on your UCAS application.

 

Intakes

This course is open to UK  applicants only. The annual intake for this course is in September each year.

Foundation courses for international applicants are run by our partners at INTO.

Without engineering, how would society progress to solve the challenges of modern life? Engineers are responsible for seeking innovative solutions to complex global problems. They apply, devise and manufacture. Engineers have an incredibly significant role in shaping the future as we move forward into the next industrial revolution, Industrie 4.0. To prepare for the exciting engineering challenges of this future you could graduate as one of a new breed of highly versatile engineering graduates. This versatility is fostered through our philosophical approach to your academic development. Instead of merely working within the traditional boundaries of engineering, we will encourage you to explore various engineering disciplines to enable you to develop a systems approach to problem resolution.
