To be entitled to the A2B alternative offer grades, students must complete the A2B module which is designed to help students make the transition from school to university. The A2B module consists of three elements:
- An online study support module to help with academic writing
- A preparation day which will help you understand what you need to do to pass the A2B module
- An assignment specific to the course applied for, set and marked by university tutors, completed after summer exams
Applicants applying for Medicine, Dentistry, Social Work, Nursing and Physiotherapy will also be asked to attend an interview preparation session.
A2B students will also be invited to an enhanced induction day before starting university to offer information, advice and guidance to prepare them for their important first term.
