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.

Individual course entry requirements are listed in our Undergraduate Prospectus for each course.

  • Candidates who have achieved three Cameroon A Levels with good grades (A to C) will be considered for entry to the first year of our Bachelor degrees. Candidates should consult the undergraduate prospectus to clarify the typical A Level offer for each programme before submitting an application via UCAS.
  • Applicants with a Baccalaureat Certificate and successful completion of a foundation programme will be considered for entry to Bachelor's courses.
  • Applicants will be required to meet the English language requirements for the programme. The profile level requirements can be found on the English language requirements for study page.

Entry requirements for the International Foundation Programme

The International Foundation Programme (IFP) is for international students whose first language is not English.

  • Applicants with a Baccalauréat will be considered for admission to our International Foundation programme.
  • You must provide a valid official Secure English Language Test (SELT) certificate with scores that meet the programme requirements. For the tests and skill levels you need to achieve for the International Foundation Programme, please visit the Profile page.

Studying on our International Foundation Programme guarantees you either a conditional offer or an interview from the University of Bristol. However, some degrees are highly competitive or require extra qualifications. In subjects related to your intended undergraduate degree, we may require higher grades than specified above. Your first choice of degree is not guaranteed. When you complete the IFP, you can progress to an agreed degree relevant to your previous studies, provided you meet the entry requirements and/or the interview standards. You select which degrees you wish to apply for.
