The experienced UWE Bristol International team will be happy to give you advice on the suitability of your qualifications for your chosen course.

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

Applicants who hold a good WASCCE plus a UK International/Bridging foundation course or equivalent will be considered for direct entry onto undergraduate courses.

If you do not meet the requirements for our other undergraduate degree courses, you may be considered for a foundation or international year one course at our International College.

Upon successful completion, these courses offer guaranteed entry onto a UWE Bristol undergraduate degree course.

UWE Bristol will consider students who have taken GCE A-level examinations or the International Baccalaureate for entrance onto undergraduate courses.

Applicants who offer either a good West African Higher School Certificate/GCSE A-level, plus a UK international/bridging foundation course or equivalent will be considered for direct entry onto undergraduate courses.

Students who hold an Ordinary National Certificate/Diploma with upper credit will be considered.

Holders of Higher National Certificate or Higher National Diploma will be considered for direct entry where AL can be awarded. Applicants with a lower score may be considered.

Students who have completed the first year of a bachelor's degree from a university in Ghana and have satisfied English language requirements will be considered for direct entry onto undergraduate courses.

Entry onto postgraduate courses

Holders of a bachelor's degree with overall GPA of 2.5 out of 4 or 2.7 out of 5 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.

English language requirements

To study at UWE Bristol you must demonstrate that your English level is high enough for university study. We accept a number of different Secure English Language Tests (SELT) for entry onto our degree courses, with IELTS being the most common. English language requirements vary slightly from subject to subject.

Please see a list of other acceptable English language qualifications.

What to do if you don't meet our entry requirements

We also have a pre-sessional English language course to get your English skills up to the standard required for entry to UWE Bristol.
