Entry requirements for undergraduate courses
You can apply for undergraduate programmes either through the Universities and Colleges Admissions Service (UCAS) or the Common Application. Please use only one method of applying. If you are using UCAS to apply for other UK universities, please also make your University of Bristol application through UCAS and do not use the Common Application.
The UCAS code name and number for this University is BRISL B78.
Candidates with good grade profiles in the Caribbean Advanced Proficiency Examination (CAPE) in at least six CAPE units, including two double-unit courses will be considered for undergraduate study. Minimum grades of I or II are required.
An associate degree, with good grades, may also be considered suitable for direct entry to year one of a relevant Bachelor degree programme.
Please note that competition for places at Bristol is very strong, so the achievement of the qualifications listed above does not guarantee that an offer will be made. We aim to get you a response as quickly as possible to help you plan your studies.
Entry requirements for postgraduate programmes
You can apply online for all our postgraduate programmes.
The standard requirement for entry to a taught masters programme at Bristol is an undergraduate (Bachelor) degree that is equivalent to a UK Upper Second Class degree (also known as a 2:1).
Candidates with a Class II upper division or Class I degree from UWI will be considered for entry to our postgraduate programmes.
An International Office Scholarship is available for new international students.
Further information about scholarships is available from the University's Student Funding Office.
Our representatives in Barbados
The University has agreements with a number of education representatives (also known as agents) around the world, who can assist you with your application. Please note that using a representative does not put your application at any advantage or disadvantage when the academic decisions are made within the department. Independent applications will be considered on an equal basis.
Please use the services of only one representative to avoid administrative complications. We only work with representatives listed on our website.
