Entry requirements and minimum age

What is the minimum age for taking an undergraduate course? Is A level Maths necessary for entry into BA Economics?
Answered by Alison Patterson
Hello Mona,

There are BA degree courses that do not require Maths A levels but as Economics is a numerate degree subject you should ask if it is the right one for you.

In general, you should be 18 to enter university.

Best of luck,
