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. You can find more information on the creative industries foundation courses available.

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.

Entry onto undergraduate courses

Holders of the Singapore/Cambridge GCE A-level qualifications, with passes in at least two subjects, will be considered against the standard UCAS tariff requirements for each individual UWE Bristol bachelor's course.

The other following qualifications would also be considered for undergraduate entry:

  • at least one H2 qualification for a foundation degree or an undergraduate degree with foundation year entry
  • at least two H2 qualifications for year one entry onto a bachelor's course
  • National Technical Certificate Grade 2 (NTC-2) with merit or above
  • Industrial Technician Certificate with merit or above.

If you hold a three-year diploma or an advanced diploma from any private colleges or polytechnics, you may be eligible for advanced entry onto a UWE Bristol undergraduate degree course.

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

Entry onto postgraduate courses

Holders of bachelor's degrees of 2:2 or above, or a GPA of 3.5 from the National University of Singapore, are eligible to apply for master's courses. Applications falling below these requirements may be considered where relevant experience can be demonstrated.

Applicants with a master's degree will be considered for doctoral (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 vary slightly from subject to subject.
