Undergraduate course application

How to apply for entry

1 UCAS applications

For entry to all years of full-time and sandwich first degrees (including foundation years) and Foundation Degrees you must apply online through the Universities and Colleges Admissions Service (UCAS).
The institution code for UWE Bristol is BUWE B80. Our course codes can be found in the course descriptions. Please note the codes for courses at Hartpury College and our associated colleges include a campus code.
PLEASE NOTE: We will consider applications received after the UCAS deadline of the 15th January for any programme which still has vacancies.

2 University applications

Applications for all part-time undergraduate programmes are made direct to the University. Application forms are available from Admissions and International Development.

Programmes subject to approval

If the course you wish to study is marked "*subject to approval", it means that it is in the process of being approved by the University. If you are interested in one of these courses, you should apply in the usual way, and the University will keep you informed of the latest developments.

A year out - the gap year

We welcome applications for most programmes from applicants who wish to take a gap year. If you decide after you have applied that you wish to defer, please contact Admissions and International Development. Most Faculties are willing to hold open for one year any offer of a place which has been accepted.

What happens to your application?

UCAS or the University will acknowledge receipt of your application within seven days. UCAS send on your details to the University, and UWE then carefully considers your application. We will normally be able to notify you (and UCAS) of our decision within 14 days, unless we require you to attend an interview, or we need further information.
You will have an opportunity through our programme of Open Days to visit UWE and meet staff and students.
