Higher Education Admissions Policy

Purpose

The selection of appropriate students to Higher Education courses is an important process. While Dudley College fully supports the national ‘Widening Participation’ strategy, we have a responsibility to ensure that academic standards are not compromised, enrolment with integrity underpinning our recruitment. This Admissions Policy is intended to outline the process involved in the selection of prospective students.

The college welcomes applications from all people. It endeavours to ensure that there will be no discrimination for reasons of race, age, sex, sexual orientation, religion or belief, disability, gender, re-assignment or socio-economic.

Scope

The policy relates to admission onto HNC/HND courses and Foundation Degrees offered by the college. Admission to teacher training courses is subject to the regulations stipulated by our partner HE institution, the University of Wolverhampton.

Entrance Criteria

  1. Applicants to full time HND courses and Foundation degrees will apply via UCAS and should hold a level 3 related subject qualification from a UK awarding body, an equivalent professional qualification or a qualification from an EU member state or overseas institution whose equivalence has been verified; applicants with nonstandard qualifications, will also be considered where they have significant professional experience within their chosen subject area.
  2. Applicants to part time HE courses will apply directly to the college and be interviewed by the Admissions tutor for the relevant course. They will normally hold a level 3 related subject qualification from a UK awarding body, an equivalent professional qualification or a qualification from an EU member state or overseas institution whose equivalence has been verified; other applicants will be considered if, for example, they have significant experience of working within their chosen profession or subject area.
  3. All applicants will be required to undertake an Initial Assessment of their current Literacy and Numeracy levels apart from those on Foundation degrees. Successful applicants will normally obtain a minimum of Level 2 Literacy. Level 2 Numeracy may be required in certain subjects. Applicants for Foundation degrees need to hold GCSE English and Maths at grade C or above, or equivalent qualifications, as entry requirements.
