Oxford to accept Engineering applications from Advanced Diploma students
20 November 2008
Students studying the diploma will need to include Physics A-level and the Level 3 Certificate in Mathematics for Engineering as part of their additional specialist learning (ASL) and demonstrate the same level of academic aptitude and potential as other candidates.
This means the Advanced Diploma in Engineering has been added to the wide range of qualifications already accepted by the University, including A-levels, International Baccalaureate, Scottish Advanced Highers, and various international qualifications which are the equivalent of A-levels.
Mike Nicholson, Head of Undergraduate Admissions at Oxford University, said: ‘We already welcome Engineering candidates with a wide range of qualifications and see the value in considering those studying the Advanced Diploma in this subject. We have always looked at more than just qualifications - academic ability and potential is assessed through a range of measures; at least two interviews, aptitude tests in many subjects, written work in some subjects, references, and attained and predicted grades.
‘We recognise there have always been some students who from an early age have identified they want to work in engineering and this provides a route for those who opt to study the Advanced Diploma in Engineering to apply to study Engineering at Oxford. We are keen to encourage appropriately qualified applicants to apply regardless of their school or college background.’
