As this is a 2 year programme, it is suited to school pupils who expect to continue in school until the end of S6.
This programme is suitable for students who are capable of working at SCQF Level 6 (equivalent to Highers) and who have a strong interest in both maths and engineering.
You are expected to achieve passes in related National 5 awards in S4. This could include Physics, Skills for Work: Engineering Skills or Engineering Science. Given the level of maths on the course, applicants should be projected to achieve an A or B pass in National 5 Maths and be committed to studying Higher Maths alongside the FA as part of their curriculum. Pupils would benefit from studying Higher Physics during S5 or S6, although this is not essential.
All applicants will be required to attend an interview and may be asked to complete a test as part of the selection process.
