    Hello people

    I'm applying for this course http://www.abertay.ac.uk/courses/ug/gdpm/ in Abertay uni.

    The thing is I'm not from UK, so I'm a bit confused in regards to if I fit the requirements. They mention "literate subjects" as essential. The problem is in high school I chose biology&chemistry as my subjects (wrong choice never really cared about either one) AND english language.

    Does english language counts as literate subjects for foreigners ? I have pretty much an equivalent of A from my english exam so does this count ? I

    I'm from Poland btw. I know it's kind of off topic (bonus question Lol) but are you guys fine with foreigners ? I really want to study in the UK becasue I can't do that degree in Poland, almost no games industry here so unis don't even have this course.

    The "literate subjects" links to a list of qualifications that they would consider. However, I would contact the university, as only they can decide if your qualifications are suitable.

    Most English unis have lots of students from around the EU and around the world. I won't say there's no xenophobia in the UK, but at uni most people should be open minded and most will be very accepting of you.

    Yeah, I've seen the list. The problem is I'm not sure if the phrase "English (including English for speakers of other languages)" means that English is considered ? Or it has to be my national equivalent ? After all learning a foreign language and learning about your own language, classic literature etc. are two completely different things - this is what got me confused.

    If anyone could confirm or deny I'd be grateful.

    Only the uni can confirm or deny 100%- drop them an email to check, they really won't mind.

    I do think you are covered. I think if they meant studying your own language, they would have phrased it differently.

    The entry requirements are confusing. It looks like your English qualification is fine as learning English as an international is included. However you appear to require Business and Computing studies which you don't have. Better contact the Uniiversity as suggested.

    I've sent an email to the uni. This can take time though, and I need to apply asap, pretty much past the deadline already, that's why I asked here. Thank you for trying to help me. I appreciate.
