    Hi there,

    I’m studying a access to he diploma in ‘Engineering’ and want to hopefully start studying at the University of Bath for Civil Engineering. However, the university requires that I have 12 credits from Mathematic units and in my access course we only do 9 credits for Math? Would Bath overlook this and accept me? As I can’t change the course for my own liking. Also is the university lenient towards students? By letting them off a few grades etc. Thank you.

    All I can suggest is to ring them, or at least email them. Clearly explain your situation, the exact course you're taking, and the credits you'll come out with. Also ask for an alternative way of getting the credits, if possible.

    Thank you. That’s exactly what I did the following day 😊.

    The admissions team over the phone not much but I was told to email and now I’m waiting for a reply. Turns out I’m studying a kinematics unit which may suffice for the final 3 credits for the 12 credits they need. Waiting on that reply now from the uni.

    Might have no choice depending on the response. Bath did reply and asked for my course portfolio. Will take it from there and if it results in me adding a unit then so be it.
