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 courses, you may be considered for a foundation or international year one course at our International College.

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