We welcome applicants with no formal qualifications. These applications will be considered on an individual basis taking into account their admissions process. The admissions process here at London School of Science and Technology is the entry requirement. It requires a Maths and English assessment to be passed at a substantial standard, followed by a SAPE (Screening for Accreditation for Prior Experience) assessment, questions to be answered in regards to the course you wish to study (this is a requirement which is subject to previous qualifications). It is completed with an interview with an academic lecturer to dictate whether you can qualify to study with us.

You will be assessed through written assignments and presentations. The assignments are provided by the awarding body.
