Offers and confirmation
Types of offers explained
If you’ve not received your exam results, your offer from UWE Bristol is likely to be a conditional one and will be subject to you getting the grades required for your course.
If you’ve already satisfied the academic entry requirements of your chosen course, we may make you an unconditional offer.
Keeping in touch
Once we’ve made an offer, we’ll send you useful information regarding your course and various UWE Bristol policies. If your course offers an Applicant Day, you’ll be personally invited by email, and we’ll notify you of our regular question and answer sessions on Facebook. You’ll also receive reminders on when to apply for student finance and accommodation, and information relating to the start of your course, including detailed joining instructions.
We’ll be in touch every step of the way via the UWE Welcome website – so keep checking for updates.

Confirming your offer with UWE Bristol
When exam results are published in August, we will confirm the places of applicants who meet the terms of their offer. Simply log in to the UWE Welcome website on results day from 08:00 to see our decision, or visit UCAS Track.
Receiving your exam results
UWE Bristol receives some exam results automatically, but not all. Check the list of exam results we get to see if yours are listed.
If they’re not, you’ll need to send your results to us direct. The easiest way to do this is to upload them on the 'My documents' page on the UWE Welcome website. We will not be able to make a decision until you send us your results, so submit these as soon as you can.

If you’d like to apply for accommodation, please keep checking the UWE Welcome website. You’ll be sent a link to the online accommodation application form, along with the next steps for your admission to UWE Bristol. If you have any questions, call Admissions on +44 (0)117 32 83333.
If you’ve not received a message
Remember, if you’re still waiting for GCSE or other results which form part of your conditional offer, we won’t be able to reach a decision until we have all of those details.
If you’ve not been successful
You could still secure a place at university. If UWE Bristol was your firm choice, check your insurance choice, as they may be able to confirm your place.
If you’ve not been successful securing your firm or insurance choices, you’ll be automatically entered into Clearing. Last year more than 60,000 students successfully went through this system and found a place at university, so don’t panic.
Login to UCAS Track to view your Clearing number. You can then start looking at the options out there.
UWE Bristol has dedicated Clearing pages updating the latest course vacancies on a daily basis. If you find yourself in Clearing, it’s important to check our website regularly.
