Entry Requirements for BSc (Hons) Engineering (Top-Up)
Progression from Level 5 Study Students may apply from technological level 5 programmes. Either progression will be already defined within the Programme Specification of those level 5 programmes or they will be considered by admissions tutors on individual merit, based on prior technology-focused study to level 5 and its alignment with setting the individual student up for completion to meet the PILOs of this programme.
APEL/APCL[1] Prior Certificated Learning and Prior Experiential Learning are two broad ways a potential student may wish to present their applicability to join this level 6, final year of a degree, top-up programme.

APEL/APCL will be considered as per Plymouth University regulations, which includes the possibility to APL 240 credits against a 360 credit BSc (Hons) degree. For mapping either APCL or APEL the admissions tutor for the relevant college should refer to the learning outcomes of their level 5 programmes that have progression to this top-up agreed. Where that isn’t immediately applicable, the admissions tutor may consider level 5 programmes from other colleges that deliver this level 6 top-up programme.

Capability Requirements, and Disability Both the context of, and therefore likelihood for future employment, and active study on this programme requires engagement with various technologies across engineering environments, including workshops, laboratories, and a wide variety of engineering industries.

 

Each institution has dedicated learning support. Applying students who have a disability or have concerns over their capability to undertake any aspects of the programme are encouraged to declare those aspects on application so they can be discussed appropriately and solutions sought in the interest of inclusion onto the programme.

Should the entry requirements not be met then individual cases will be considered.

 

Assessment will be through a mixture of coursework, practical assessments and examinations.

Upon successful completion you may be able to progress onto a level 7 masters programme at an alternative higher education institution.

Please note fees are quoted for one year only.
