2. Bath
3. Loughborough
4. Surrey
5. Leeds
6. Newcastle
7. Birmingham
8. Nottingham Trent

15. Southampton
16. Edinburgh
17. Aberytswyth

Hey,

Depends on the entry criteria, some Universities are more lenient whereas some are more strict with grades. Majority of those Universities are highly ranked and will ask for high grades.

With a 2.2, not very high from any UK university worth spending international fees on. I'm not sure you'd get an offer from more than a couple of those. Relevant work experience might help, leadership experience is irrelevant for UK applications.

I looked at the requirements and a 2.9 should get me into :

1. Bath
2. Loughborough
3. Surrey
4. Newcastle
5. Nottingham Trent
6. Cardiff
7. Nottingham (For an Electrical Engineering masters)
8. Birmingham
9. Aberystwyth

They all require a 2.8 so I'm covered in that regard. The others ask for a 3.0 but I have a 2.99 so I'm not sure if it's enough to get me in.

Doesn't Nottingham ask for a 2:2 for CompSci Masters? They're usually pretty lenient, too.

Some universities are under the Russell Group require higher grades to get in.
