For changes to 2017 UCAS tariff entry requirements please see our important information. UCLan requires all undergraduate applicants to have a minimum attainment of five GCSEs at grade C and above, or equivalent, (including Maths and English). In 2017 and beyond we will view the new Grade 4 as being equivalent to a C grade and will therefore require students to achieve GCSE Grade 4 or above. However, if the subject is relevant to our degree programme and requires a higher GCSE grade (e.g. GCSE B grade), and/or includes a Professional body that governs the entry requirements, Grade 5 or above may be required.
As a civil engineer you will become a part of a dynamic, fast growing industry with the potential to develop your career across the globe. You will have alternative routes to gain employment in a range of engineering disciplines, within either the broad area of civil engineering or specialist disciplines such as a structural engineer, transportation engineer, environmental engineer, or engineering hydrologist. As well as the option to further your specialisation with a postgraduate course, you can also diversify into the academic world of research and development, within universities or work for dedicated established research organisations within the built environment.
