Each course has specific entry criteria. For some you will need to have a certain level of knowledge in a subject before you begin the degree – this is called a subject requirement. Entry onto all courses is dependent on you reaching a particular standard in your education and achieving certain exam grades.
Most courses will list a typical offer with their course information. Entry to all courses at the University of Reading is competitive, so even if you hold (or are predicted to achieve) grades matching our typical offer, you are not guaranteed an offer of a place on a degree course.
Note that entry requirements shown on our course pages are only an indicator. We sometimes update entry requirements throughout the year, so check online or contact the Admissions Office for the latest information. In addition, we treat each application on individual merit, so don’t rule yourself out.
If you are unsure whether your predicted grades would be acceptable for entry, contact our Admissions Office staff for advice. If you are made an offer of a place, the conditions that you need to meet to take up your place on the course will be detailed in your offer letter.
