Return-to-learn students are those who have had a substantial period away from any formal learning. Often such learners have pursued careers or raised a family. The University understands that students come from many different bachelorckgrounds, with varying qualifications, careers and skills, but they often bring to their studies a high degree of motivation and experience.The University recognises that standard selection measures and procedures may not enable these learners to demonstrate fully their suitability for their chosen course. Where appropriate, admissions officers will seek and consider alternative evidence in order to give such learners equivalent consideration. Where they deem this alternative evidence meets entry criteria fully the learner will not be required to meet the standard academic entry requirements.

Application and selection

Mitigating circumstances may be personal or family illness, other family circumstances, change of teachers during a course, problems with school facilities or an unusual curriculum followed by your school or college. We recommend that information on mitigating circumstances that have affected or are likely to affect your academic performance will be included in the referee's report. We cannot usually take into account information that is supplied after an adverse decision has been made on an application by the admitting School. If you encounter mitigating circumstances after you have submitted your application, please inform the admissions staff in the School to which you applied as soon as possible.
Where mitigating circumstances have already been taken into account, for example by the relevant Exam Board, we will not be able to make further allowances.
If you have followed a non-standard educational route and have been, for example, educated at home, your application will be considered against the standard entry criteria of the course to which you applied. You will be required to demonstrate that you meet the academic entry requirements as specified for the course. We will also require a reference which should be written by somebody who knows you well enough, in an official capacity, to write about you and your suitability for higher education.

The University of Manchester welcomes the provision of unit grade information which, like all other available information, will form the consideration of application. Unit grades will not normally form part of offer conditions, except for courses in the School of Mathematics.
Alliance Manchester Business School will not be using the A* for standard entry requirements or offer making. It may however be taken into account at the point of confirmation to inform decisions on candidates who have narrowly missed the terms of their offers, and in the allocation of School Scholarships. Please note that the A* grade applies to UK A-levels only and has not been introduced for international A-levels. Courses will therefore state separate entry requirements for international A-levels where appropriate.
A-levels in a native or heritage language
We consider applications holistically taking into consideration the overall educational environment. Where native langue A levels are offered we will consider them in line with other subjects that the student has undertaken.
Strong examination results are the main factor in admitting students to our courses. We consider other information to ensure we admit students with the most outstanding potential. This is assessed within a structured framework and includes prior and predicted grades. Your referee should give realistic grade predications for all qualifications that you are currently studying at the top of their reference. If you attend a non-UK school or college that does not provide predicted grades your referee should explain this policy within their reference. Further guidance for referees is provided by UCAS (www.ucas.com).
We do not as a rule interview applicants. However, we reserve the right to interview candidates with non-standard bachelorckgrounds, eg. Mature students and students aged under 17.
The University encourages applications from applicants returning to education after employment or other experience. Your application will be considered against the standard entry criteria of the course to which you applied. However, we recognise that standard selection measures and procedures may not enable you to demonstrate fully your suitability for your chosen course. Where appropriate, admissions staff will seek and consider alternative evidence in order to give you equivalent consideration. Where they deem this alternative evidence to meet entry criteria fully, you will not be required to meet the standard academic entry requirements.
International applicants will be assessed against the standard entry criteria of the course to which they are applying.
Applications for deferred entry are considered equally to other applications up to the point of confirmation. Deferred entry is granted on the discretion of admissions staff, and is normally granted for one year only and 2 years at the maximum. Some English Language test results, such as IELTS or TOEFL, are only valid for two years from the test date.
We would normally raise our offer by at least one grade for applicants re-sitting their A Levels or equivalent. Any exceptional circumstances (e.g. illness prior, ongoing or at the time of your exams) should be included in your personal statement or in the academic reference.
Resits/A levels taken over more than one sitting are accepted.
If you applied in the previous year and your application was not successful you may apply again. Your application will be considered against the standard course entry criteria for that year of entry. In your new application you should demonstrate how your application has improved. We may draw upon all information from your previous applications or any previous registrations at the University as a student when assessing your suitability for your chosen course. If you are applying for a place for the same year of entry through UCAS Extra, you should provide additional evidence of your suitability for the course. If you are applying through clearing you are required to meet the clearing requirements. In both UCAS Extra and clearing the places will be subject to availability.
