UCAS Tariff Points for EQL Qualifications

The UCAS Tariff was developed to allow for broad comparisons to be made about a wide range of qualifications by universities and colleges and to help them with their management information. The university or college you're interested in may accept your qualifications as an appropriate entry route. We are keen that the EQL qualifications are recognised, but it is at the discretion of each university.

For entry into higher education courses from September 2017, the UCAS Tariff points have changed. You can use the UCAS Tariff Calculator on the UCAS website to work out how many points your qualifications are worth.

The number of points allocated to the qualifications is lower for 2017 onwards. However, the new Tariff is based on a different number scale which allows more qualifications to be added to the UCAS Tariff. The new numbers are much lower because of the different way they are calculated. Universities and colleges will take this into account in their entry requirements.
