We welcome applications from anyone coming from background in employment. We expect that individuals who would have worked in the following fields would be well-suited to our programme: Engineering (all disciplines), Design (product), the Creative Industries, Computing, Finance, Construction, Architecture.
We can consider your employment and/or volunteering history as evidence of the equivalent of Level 3 learning. Depending on your background, you may be invited to an interview to discuss further. If you wish to apply to TEDI-London using your employment history, and would like support to complete your application please contact email@example.com
Application and assessment steps
We're looking for a combination of Attitude, Aptitude and Ability. It’s about more than technical brilliance. It’s also about your initiative and what motivates you. Here's what the process looks like:
Submit your application
You can apply to us either through UCAS or directly. Once we receive an application, we will review it to assess what steps are appropriate for you. In your application we will be looking for an interest in our area of study, Design Engineering or Engineering, but as we know you could be applying to multiple universities on UCAS we do not require this to be specifically about Global Design Engineering.
At this stage we will also be looking to see that you are on track to meet our academic requirements – studying Level 3 qualification and on track to achieve 112-120 tariff points.
If you are applying from an employment background this is where we will ask you for details about your work experience and send you forms to complete for more evidence if needed.
Complete a numeracy test
Applicants who have not studied Maths at a higher level (i.e an A level or Level 3 BTEC), can complete a short (12 hour) maths refresher course – with a short assessment at the end. This online course is designed to familiarise you with using maths to develop design thinking and solve engineering problems.

Confirmation of offer
We will be in touch to confirm your offer to study at TEDI-London.
Attend an offer holder day
Next you’ll be invited to an on-campus Offer Holder Day.
This is an optional event (not conditional to your offer) but a great opportunity for you to get a taste for what life as a TEDI-London student will be like.
During the event you will get to know more about our style of teaching and learning, meet some of your fellow offer holders, and have the chance to ask our tutors and current students any questions you have.
Our student admissions team will be happy to help. Get in touch.
Apply to TEDI-London
In most cases, we are able to review applications and make our first contact with you within 2 working days. We may need to request documents or further details from you, but we can assist you with this. As we review applications on a rolling basis, in most cases we are able to send your ‘conditional’ offer within one week. Your offer will remain conditional until you have successfully completed your applicant day.

Based on Khan Academy, our Maths Refresher course is delivered remotely using an online learning platform and covers four key topics that are central to design:
• 2D and 3D shapes
• Playing with equations
• Visualising data
• Combining topics to solve problems
The focus is on using the maths to develop design thinking and solve engineering problems. You will complete tasks based on the Khan Academy platform and submit a handwritten assignment for each part.
Once you have completed all 4 parts and submitted all 4 assignments, you can book an on-line, open book test. There are 10 questions to complete online and 2 questions to work out by hand, photograph and upload. The test will take approximately 1 hour but you will have a half day slot to take it.
Second Year Entry
In some instances, your previous experience (employment and education) might exempt you from having to do Year One of our programme and we could consider an application directly into Year 2 of our programme.
