Entry requirements - Mexico

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

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.

If you do not meet the requirements for our undergraduate degree courses, you may be considered for a foundation degree.

Holders of a Bachillerato with a GPA of 7.0 out of 10 will be considered for entry onto a UWE Bristol Art and Design foundation course. You can find more information on the creative industries foundation courses available.

For other courses, students have the option to undertake an international foundation or international year one course at our International College. Upon successful completion, these courses offer guaranteed entry onto a UWE Bristol bachelor degree course.
