Hi Stephen,

I think you are referring to undergraduate Civil Engineering courses in the UK. The list of Civil Engineering courses is at:

To study Civil Engineering, 3 A levels will be required. Maths and Physics are likely to be compulsory (sometimes only Maths). So, I would say your son will meet entry requirements. Click on a few of the courses in the Course Search above to find out what grades he will need to achieve.

Apply through UCAS at www.ucas.com

Good luck with your application!
