Entry requirements - Nigeria

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.

Entry onto foundation courses

If you do not meet the requirements for our Art and Design undergraduate degree courses, you may be considered for a foundation degree. You can find more information on the creative industries foundation courses available.

If you do not meet the requirements for our other undergraduate degree courses, you may be considered for a foundation or international year one course at our International College.

Upon successful completion, these courses offer guaranteed entry onto a UWE Bristol undergraduate degree course.

Entry onto undergraduate courses

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

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

Students who hold a Post-Secondary Certificate/OND Advanced National Technical Certificate 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 bachelor's degree from a university in Nigeria and have satisfied English language requirements will be considered for direct entry onto undergraduate courses.

The requirements listed above are the minimum requirements for entrance to UWE Bristol; competitive courses may have higher requirements.

Entry onto postgraduate courses

Holders of a good bachelor's degree awarded by a Nigerian university will be considered for postgraduate study, depending on the English level.

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

English language requirements

To study at UWE Bristol you must demonstrate that your English level is high enough for university study. We accept a number of different Secure English Language Tests (SELT) for entry onto our degree courses, with IELTS being the most common. English language requirements vary slightly from subject to subject.

Please see a list of other acceptable English language qualifications.

What to do if you don't meet our entry requirements

If you do not quite meet our entry requirements, our International College offers a range of university preparation courses to teach you all you need to progress to UWE Bristol. We also have a  pre-sessional English language course to get your English skills up to the standard required for entry to UWE Bristol.
