What happens when results are published?

We receive most exam results automatically, but not all. Check the list of exam results we receive to see if yours are listed. If they’re not, you’ll need to send your results directly to us. The easiest way to do this is to upload them on the 'My documents' page on the Welcome website.

When the exam results are published in August, we’ll confirm the places for all applicants who meet our requirements for that course. You just need to log into the Welcome website to see our decision, or visit UCAS Track.

Your place is confirmed

Congratulations, this means we have confirmed you have met the conditions of your offer and you have a place with us. Your UCAS track will now show your offer as unconditional.

You miss the conditions of your offer

We consider all applicants who miss their offer conditions. Often we’re still able to offer you a place if you did not miss your grades by far or can offer you’re an alternative course so try not to panic.

You can check your status on the Welcome website or UCAS Track when results are known, we may have already confirmed your place.

You are offered an alternative course

If you do not meet the conditions of your offer we may make you an offer on a different course or on our foundation year for that course. You will need to ensure that you reply to the offer within five days on UCAS Track, otherwise the offer will be withdrawn. 

If you have done better than expected we may be able to offer you a place on our year 1 entry to that programme, so you do not need to complete the foundation year.

UWE Bristol is your Insurance choice and you have not been confirmed by your Firm choice

If you are unsuccessful with your firm choice but meet our requirements your offer will be updated to show that you’re coming to us.

At this point, you would be eligible to apply for accommodation and we will send you details of how to apply both by email and through the Welcome website, as well as other messages to guide you through the next steps to joining UWE Bristol.

You have not been confirmed by us

If you’ve not been successful securing your firm or insurance choices, you’ll be automatically entered into Clearing. UWE Bristol has dedicated Clearing pages, which we update with the latest course vacancies on a daily basis. If you find yourself in Clearing, it’s important to check our website regularly.

Many students go on to find the right course and university for them through Clearing, so if you unexpectedly find yourself in Clearing, try to keep positive that you can still find the right course for you.

What happens next

Clearing Open Days

If you receive an offer in Clearing you will be invited to attend one of our Clearing Open Days. You'll have the opportunity to talk to tutors about your course, meet current students and take part in a campus tour.


Once the application process is complete and your place has been confirmed, registration can begin.

Online registration takes place from the start of August. We'll send you details, but if you'd like to find out about the regulations concerning registration in advance, you can read our Registration Agreement and Conditions and our Tuition Fee Policy.

Welcome event

You will need to attend the welcome event to complete your registration in person.
