Which universities take BTECs for MPharm?Watch this thread
If you do this, the first three it lists (alphabetically) are:
Aston University, Birmingham: D*D*D* - DDD
University of Bath: DDD
University of Birmingham: See entry requirements
If you then check what the university web sites themselves say, you find that UCAS doesn't really tell you the whole story:
Aston University: Extended Diploma (QCF) National | Distinction*, Distinction*, Distinction* (D*D*D*) | The BTEC subject must be Applied Science with which you do not require an additional A Level.
University of Bath: DDD in the BTEC Level 3 National Extended Diploma (RQF) plus grade A in A level Chemistry
University of Birmingham: BTEC Extended Diploma will not be considered without A level Chemistry
So, from that sample of three, one could have guessed that when UCAS said "See entry requirements" for Birmingham, it really meant "Not allowed". However, it's disappointing that the details UCAS displays for University of Bath are inaccurate. At least Aston University looks like a potential option.
I don't know a quicker way to answer your question other than to repeat the above process for the other 37 provides of MPharm which UCAS lists.
The entry requirements for Pharmacy MPharm at Aston are:
- Extended Diploma (QCF) National: D*D*D* ( The BTEC subject must be Applied Science with which you do not require an additional A-Level )
- Extended Diploma (QCF/National): DDD ( With this BTEC you must achieve grade BB in two science A-level subjects including Chemistry PLUS Biology, Physics or Maths )
- Diploma (QCF)National Diploma: DD ( With this BTEC you must achieve grade BB in two science subjects including Chemistry PLUS Biology, Physics or Maths. If you are taking the BTEC in Applied Science subject, you must also achieve grade B in A-Level Chemistry)

I hope this has helped.
