Equal Opportunities in Admissions
The University's policy in considering applications is to use an assessment of the applicant's potential to achieve success as the criterion for selection. Admissions Tutors will therefore consider factors relevant to the applicant’s academic aptitude.
No applicant will receive less favourable treatment on the grounds of sex, sexual orientation, marital status, religion, social class, age, disability, colour, race, nationality, or ethnic or national origins.
Any conditions for entry to a course will only be imposed if justifiable on academic grounds.
