Qualifications reform update


University entry requirements for BTEC students

  • All HEIs, with the exception of Imperial College London, accept BTEC Nationals for at least some courses

  • Most accept the Level 3 Extended Diploma on its own

  • Most tend to require additional qualifications with the smaller BTEC Nationals (e.g. Subsidiary Diploma and Diploma)

  • Some highly selective courses have the following restrictions:

  • They specify the inclusion of named units, sometimes at distinction grade

  • They require an A level as well as the BTEC Extended Diploma

  • They accept BTEC students on to a foundation year only

  • It is therefore important that BTEC students check entry requirements carefully
