Some courses and qualifications have a limit on the number of students they can admit.
How we select people for limited-entry programmes
Each course or programme with limited entry has its own specific entry criteria. Top priority is usually given to students needing to complete the course for a particular major or specialisation. Remaining places are often allocated on academic merit and relevance to the student’s overall programme. Sometimes ‘first-come, first-served’ is applied, meaning students should pay particular attention to the enrolment deadlines.
