Entry requirements - Ghana

The experienced UWE Bristol International team will be happy to give you advice on the suitability of your qualifications for your chosen programme of study.

Qualifications listed under each heading may satisfy UWE Bristol entry requirements to that level of study. This is not a guarantee of an offer of a place, which is at the University’s discretion.

All students must also have a recognised English language qualification.

Entry onto foundation programmes

If you do not quite meet the entry requirements for our undergraduate programmes, UWE offers foundation degrees or undergraduate degrees with foundation year entry.

Entry onto undergraduate programmes

UWE will consider students who have taken GCE A-level examinations or the International Baccalaureate for entrance onto undergraduate programmes.

Applicants who offer either a good West African Higher School Certificate/GCSE A-level plus a UK international/bridging foundation course or equivalent will be considered for direct entry onto undergraduate programmes.

Students who hold an Ordinary National Certificate/Diploma with upper credit will be considered.

Holders of Higher National Certificate or Higher National Diploma will be considered for direct entry where AL can be awarded. Applicants with a lower score may be considered.

Students who have completed the first year of a Bachelors degree from a university in Ghana and have satisfied English language requirements will be considered for direct entry onto undergraduate programmes.

Entry onto postgraduate programmes

Holders of a good Bachelors (Hons) degree awarded by a Ghanaian university will be considered for postgraduate study, depending on the English level.

Students who satisfy our English language requirements would be considered for direct entry onto postgraduate courses.

Students who do not satisfy the requirements would be asked to study a pre-Masters course before entry onto a postgraduate course.

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.
