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

If you do not meet the requirements for our Art and Design undergraduate degree courses, you may be considered for a foundation degree.

If you do not meet the requirements for our other undergraduate degree programmes, 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.

Entry onto undergraduate courses

If you have achieved the following, your application can be considered for the first year of a bachelor's degree:

  • two years of a bachelor's degree from a recognised Philippine institution
  • completion of a two-year associate degree.

Advanced entry onto a bachelor's degree can be possible in some cases with the following:

  • very good grades from three years of a bachelor's degree
  • a graduate certificate with good grades.

The requirements listed above are the minimum requirement for entrance to UWE Bristol; competitive courses require higher scores.

Entry onto postgraduate courses

If you have achieved the following your application can be considered for a master's course:

  • a master's from a Philippine institution
  • in some cases very high grades from a bachelor's degree taken in a centre of excellence or prestigious institution
  • holders of the Philippine master's will require an additional year of postgraduate study in order to be eligible for PhD study
  • in some cases students who have taken a master's from a Centre of Excellence or prestigious institution will be invited to apply from master's directly onto PhD.

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

If you do not quite meet our entry requirements, our International College offers a range of university preparation courses to teach you all you need to progress to UWE Bristol. We also have a pre-sessional English language course to get your English skills up to the standard required for entry to UWE Bristol.
