UCAS Tariff points

Find out what UCAS Tariff points are, how they’re used, and how many points your qualifications are worth.

What are UCAS Tariff points?

UCAS Tariff points translate your qualifications and grades into a numerical value. Most qualifications (but not all) have a tariff value, which varies according to the level of qualification and the grade achieved.

How are UCAS Tariff points used?

At UWE Bristol, we use the UCAS Tariff point system so you’ll see our offers in tariff points on our course entry requirements.

Calculate your UCAS Tariff points

You can calculate your UCAS Tariff points by finding your qualifications on the UCAS Tariff tables, or use the UCAS Tariff point calculator.

Each UWE Bristol course entry lists the indicative tariff points required to study it.

What happens if my qualifications aren't listed on the UCAS Tariff?

We will also consider qualifications that aren't on the tariff. Contact our Admissions Team for more advice.
