Entry requirements - Bangladesh

Flag of Bangladesh

UWE Bristol is a popular choice for students from Bangladesh due to its very strong student community both at the University and in the City of Bristol. The UWE Bristol Bangladesh Society has a prominent position within the student community and is often at the forefront of key cultural events including Eid and International Mother Language day.

We are also home to one of the UK’s eight bar schools, and as such we are particularly popular amongst students looking to study Law. Many Bangladeshi students study at a law school in Bangladesh and then transfer to UWE Bristol in year two or three.
