Qualifications listed under each heading may satisfy UWE Bristol entry requirements to that level of study. This is not a guarantee of an offer of a place, which is at the University’s discretion.

Entry onto foundation courses

If you do not meet the requirements for our undergraduate degree courses, you may wish to be considered for a foundation degree.

Holders of a Certificate of General Secondary Education with grade average of 80% are eligible to apply for the UWE Bristol Art and Design foundation degrees.

For other courses, students have the option to undertake an international foundation or international year one course at our International College. Upon successful completion, these courses offer guaranteed entry onto a UWE Bristol degree course.

Entry onto undergraduate courses

Holders of a diploma (from an intermediate institute) may be suitable for undergraduate study. In some cases accredited learning may be awarded for level 1 or 2 entry.

If you have studied the American High School Curriculum, please refer to the USA country page.

If you have studied A-levels or International Baccalaureate, further information on entry requirements can be found on our course listings.

The requirements listed above are the minimum requirements for entrance to UWE Bristol, competitive courses may have higher requirements.

Entry onto postgraduate courses

Holders of a bachelor's degree (American System – four years) with 65% or above will be considered for postgraduate study.

Please note: Where UWE Bristol has an academic agreement in place with an institution, greater flexibility in entry requirements for undergraduate and postgraduate courses may apply as outlined in those agreements.
