Entry requirements and qualifications

Lancaster University does not ask applicants to sit an institutional admissions test. For a few of our degrees, you may be asked to take a professional test or interview or provide a portfolio of work, however you will be told about this when you apply.

The typical entry requirements for each course can be found on the Course Overview pages. Use our Course Search to find the entry criteria for the degree you are interested in. 

Our offers are made on the basis of qualifications rather than UCAS Tariff points. Where you are presenting with a combination of qualifications we will in most cases be able to consider these. Some qualifications are not considered and this may vary according to which degree you are applying to. Please check our course pages for entry criteria along with more detailed information below. If you require further advice please contact our Undergraduate Admissions Office.
