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 must successfully complete the Iukiokoulutus/Gymnasieutbildningen and the Ylioppilastutkinto/Studentexam in addition to achieving specified grades in relevant subjects in the Matriculation exams.

For more information on applying to universities in the UK please read our guidance for European Union students applying for undergraduate (Bachelor) degree courses.

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.
