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 who have completed the Curso de Orientación Universitaria (COU) or the Titulo de Bachillerato with good grades will be considered for entry to the first year of our Bachelor degree courses.

If an A* grade is required in a specified subject at A Level, we will need a 10 in that specific Bachillerato subject. If an A grade is required we will need 9 and if a B grade is required we will need 8. 

We are aware of changes made to Spanish University entrance procedures in 2010. Please note that when assessing applications and making offers, at Bristol we use grades only from the Bachillerato qualification (and not the combined results of the Bachillerato/PAU). Please ensure that these grades are clearly differentiated on the UCAS form and explained, if necessary, in the reference from your school. You should include the combined score aswell as other UK universities may require this information.

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 who hold the Licenciado / Título de Ingeniero / Título de Arquitecto will be considered for admission to a Masters degree, and in exceptional cases for MPhil or PhD programmes. The minimum grade required is 7.5/10 although some programmes will require grades of 8.5/10 or higher.
