Welcome to NTU

Hello, my name’s Katy and I'm your NTU representative.

Thinking of studying with us when you've finished your course at CATS College? That's great. I love meeting new students and families personally to give advice and guidance so if you'd like to get in touch please do.

And if you want to come to the University to have a look around I'd be happy to give you a tour.

Entry requirements

You'll be familiar with the UCAS point system I'm sure. I've given some guidance below on our entry requirements - obviously it depends what you're doing at CATS College so I've outlined our requirements from the IB, A level and the CATS University Foundation Programme.

If you're still not sure what you need just get in touch and I can advise.

  • University Foundation Programme (UFP)

    CATS University Foundation Programme grade

    UCAS Tariff points
    Pass with minimum of ABB in three subject modules 128
    Pass with minimum of BBB in three subject modules 120
    Pass with minimum of BBC in three subject modules 112
    Pass with minimum of BCC in three subject modules 104

    Where specific subject grades are required at A level, we would expect to see the equivalent grades in relevant modules.

    If you have lower grades, please get in touch with Katy Fair, to talk about your options.

  • A levels

    Look up your NTU course first to see how many UCAS Tariff points you'll need.

    A level grades are approximately equivalent to the following UCAS Tariff points:

    A* = 56

    A = 48

    B = 40

    C = 32

    D = 24

    If you need some help with adding up your points you can enter your grades on the UCAS calculator.

  • International Baccalaureate

    We have a long history of accepting IB Diploma graduates to our courses.

    This has helped us to develop requirements which offer you the best possible opportunity to access and succeed in your studies

    You'll find all the relevant information on what grades you need on our IB diploma web page.

    Any questions, email me and I'll be happy to advise.

English language entry requirements

You'll also need IELTS, or equivalent English language qualification.

A key point to remember is that if you've done IGCSE and A level, we will ask for Maths and English at GCSE. However, if you haven’t done IGCSE we will only ask for English.

Any questions, email me and I'll be happy to advise.

You'll be joining a truly international community here at NTU with students and staff from over 160 countries.
