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 High School Graduation Diploma with a GPA of 2.5 out of 4 will be considered for entry onto a creative industries foundation course.

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 degree course.

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

Entry onto postgraduate courses

Holders of a bachelor's degree with a GPA of 2.7 out of 4 or more will be considered for postgraduate study.

Lower requirements may be considered where students have suitable work experience.

Holders of a master's degree are eligible to apply for 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.
