To progress and be eligible for entry on to our undergraduate degree programmes you must achieve at least 50%* in your foundation programme. Use the table below to compare pass rates with UCAS tariff points. For example, if you achieve a 50% pass mark then you can go on to study programmes that require 112-120 UCAS tariff points.

* Pass rate varies dependant on chosen route of study.

% achieved on IFP Equivalent UCAS tariff point for undergraduate study
50-59% 112 and 120
60-69% 128 and 136
70%+ 144 and above
