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 quite meet the entry requirements for our undergraduate 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.

Entry onto undergraduate courses

Applicants who hold the Attestat o Srednem Obrazovanii (Certificate of Secondary Education) combined with a successfully completed appropriate foundation/bridging programme will be considered for admission onto undergraduate courses.

Applicants who have successfully completed the first year of a Russian university degree will be considered for admission to the first year of our undergraduate degree courses.

Applicants who have successfully completed the Bakalavr or of the Specialist Diploma may be considered for advanced entry (Year 2 or 3) or pre-master's courses.

If you have studied A-levels or International Baccalaureate, further information on entry requirements can be found at courses at UWE Bristol.

Entry onto postgraduate courses

Holders of a good bachelor's (Hons) degree or Specialist Diploma awarded by a university in Russia will be considered for entry onto a master's course.

Holders of a good master's (Magistr) degree awarded by a university in Russia will be considered for PhD 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

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.
