What can I do next

Undergraduate study at Bristol

When you have successfully completed your International Foundation Programme, you can progress onto an agreed degree if you meet the progression requirements. If you are interested in Dentistry, you will be offered an interview. 

Required grades

To study an undergraduate degree at the University of Bristol, as well as successfully completing the International Foundation Programme, your high school grades must meet the minimum entry requirements for undergraduate study. This could include meeting a minimum GCSE or equivalent grade requirement for Mathematics and Science subjects or a compulsory minimum grade in specific units.

If you don’t meet the requirements of your chosen degree, we will work with you to find an alternative degree choice.

The table below will give you an idea of what grade you would need to achieve on the International Foundation Programme to meet the entry requirement for your chosen degree:

A-levelIFP
A*AA 65%
AAA 60%
AAB 55%
ABB 50%

Can I study at another university?

Although the International Foundation Programme is tailored towards studying a degree at the University of Bristol, it is recognised by many other UK universities. To apply to another university, you will need to submit a UCAS application and check that the university accepts the Bristol International Foundation Programme. We can’t guarantee your place at any other universities.

We can provide advice and guidance to help you find the right next step.
