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 

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:

  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. Confirmation of offer

    We will be in touch to confirm your offer to study at TEDI-London.

  4. 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.
