What we look for


Our typical conditional offer is one A* and two A grades at A-Level or equivalent.

Previous Land Economy students have taken a wide range of subjects at A-Level, from sciences, mathematics, arts, and social sciences. There are no required subjects at A-Level, but Mathematics is useful. If you haven't studied Mathematics at A-Level or equivalent, we'll need to know that you have the mathematical skills to thrive on the course.

We welcome applications from students with other qualifications comparable to A2 Level, such as the Scottish Advanced Highers, the International Baccalaureate, and other school leaving examinations.

Written assessment

There is currently no written assessment for Land Economy.


In 2022-23, we’ll be interviewing shortlisted applicants virtually, with interviews taking place in December.

The interview process aims to assess your intellectual ability, potential, and commitment to the subject. Candidates are typically interviewed by at least three subject specialists, including the Director of Studies, and total contact time will be between 35-50 minutes in total. This could be in a single interview, or in two separate interviews. Further details will be made available to candidates closer to the time.

Find out more about the interview process on the University website.

Written work

You don't need to submit any written work.
