English language support

As you will have been pre-selected by your home university, we expect that your English ability has been taken into account as part of the selection process.

As you are an exchange student, you are not currently required to provide evidence of an English language qualification. However, we offer English language support for exchange students during their studies with UWE Bristol.

If you require a Tier 4 visa to study in the UK you may need to provide official English language certification. Please contact us if this is the case.

Accommodation during your studies

Accommodation at UWE is guaranteed to an exchange student if you:

  • are a year-long student
  • apply for accommodation by 1 May
  • reply to an offer of accommodation and
  • pay the deposit by the deadline.

If you are studying at UWE Bristol for less than an academic year, Accommodation Services will do their best to help you find suitable accommodation, but this is not guaranteed.

All accommodation offers will be sent to your e-mail address after allocations have taken place. Accommodation contracts run alongside our term dates. This means that accommodation contract dates are not flexible, but mirror UWE Bristol's term dates.
