Your grades are only part of the picture. At BU we want to learn about you and your life experiences as this allows us to identify your potential to succeed if you haven’t had the same educational opportunities as other applicants.

What this means in practice is that we look at more than just your academic performance when making you an offer. ‘AccessBU’ allows you to tell us about personal circumstances that are not always evident in your UCAS application. We then use this information when considering your application to decide if we can make you an offer that gives you a better chance of accessing Higher Education.

If you are unable to meet the entry requirements published on our website, we may be able to make you an offer through AccessBU if you meet our criteria below.
