All students must also have a recognised English language qualification.

Entry onto foundation programmes

If you do not meet the requirements for our undergraduate Bachelor degree programmes, you may be considered for a Foundation Degree. Holders of Senior High School Certificate with a score of at least 70 will be considered for entry onto a UWE Bristol Art and Design foundation.

For other courses, students have the option to undertake an International Foundation or International Year One programme at our International College. Upon successful completion, these programmes offer guaranteed entry onto a UWE Bristol Bachelor degree programme.

  • Completed one year of a degree program at a Chinese University with 70 per cent

The scores listed above are the minimum requirement for entrance to UWE Bristol, competitive programmes require higher scores.

Entry onto postgraduate programmes

Applicants with the following qualifications would be considered for entry to UWE Bristol’s Masters programmes:

  • Holders of a Masters degree will be considered for doctoral (PhD) study.

Please note: Where UWE Bristol has an academic agreement in place with an institution, greater flexibility in entry requirements for undergraduate and postgraduate courses may apply as outlined in those agreements.
