Cardiff University accepts the Advanced Skills Challenge Certificate (Welsh Baccalaureate (WBQ) Advanced Diploma) for admission to all of its undergraduate degree programmes and the Welsh Baccalaureate Diploma Core will be accepted as equivalent to A Level.
The Skills Challenge Certificate (Welsh Baccalaureate) is unusual as a qualification whose content is in large part led by students themselves. We enormously value the self-motivation, curiosity and independent-mindedness this approach to learning develops. It is these characteristics, along with three excellent A Levels, that we look for at competitive universities like Oxford.
We welcome applications offering the Advanced Skills Challenge Certificate (Welsh Baccalaureate), and recognise the valuable skills developed by studying for this qualification.
The University welcomes and recognises the value of the Advanced Welsh Skills Challenge Certificate (Advanced Welsh Baccalaureate) and usually requires two A Levels to be included within this.
