UGAS qualifications

corriere

Midshipman
Hey, everyone.

I'm currently enrolled on an Access to HE course in science (equally weighted between biology, chemistry and physics) so I can get on the UGAS scheme. I've read and re-read the information provided on the RN website, I've spoken to the careers office, etc., but I'd appreciate anyone's insight!

Many thanks.

In general university degree access courses aren't usually accepted in lieu of the basic UCAS requirement for RN/RM specialisations that require the A Level or BTEC Level 3-equivalant. That said, some HND/HNC courses are accepted depending on grades and academic relevance.

The only way to find out for certain is to get a copy of your specific course content and qualification title and either scan and emal or take copies to your AFCO so they can be verified by the AIB/Engineeering Branch Manager.

UGAS applicants need NQF Level 2 in 5 subjects (including Maths, English and at least one Science), plus:
A Minimum of 160 UCAS points from a Level 3 STEM qualification in an Engineering, Maths or a physical science discipline

Gut feeling? Probably not, but worth an ask if you meet the GCSEs, Nationality, Residency an the age parameters for entry for UGAS.

I originally applied for UGAS but even with 10 years apprentice trained engineering experience, lv2&3 NVQ's in engineering, intermediate and advanced certificates of training and the required lv2 key skills quals I couldn't even get a shot at it. That being said with the conventional route and going through Fast Track you can get to be a qualified LET almost as fast as a UGAS
