Confirming your place

If your offer is unconditional, your place is already confirmed.

If your offer is conditional and you are taking any of the following UK examinations, UCAS will send us your results:

  • A-level
  • AS-level
  • Scottish Higher
  • Advanced Higher
  • Welsh Baccalaureate
  • Irish Higher
  • Access to HE Diploma
  • BTEC.

If you meet your offer conditions, we will automatically confirm your place. You will be able to see this on UCAS Track.

International qualifications

If you are taking any UK or international examinations other than the above, you must send copies of your results or transcripts to the Admissions Office as soon as they are available (

English translations

Any certificates not in English must also have a certified translation into English. This must be signed or stamped by an official translation service or education provider. If you meet your offer conditions, we will then confirm your place and update UCAS Track.

Missed offers

If you narrowly miss your offer conditions, we may reconsider your application. It is possible that your place could still be confirmed, or that you may be offered an alternative course.

We aim to make a decision on most applications by 2pm on Friday 18 August 2017.

Withdrawing your application

We will assume you will be taking up your place unless you withdraw through UCAS Track.

Common Application

If you have applied through the Common Application, once you meet your offer conditions we will send you an acceptance form to confirm your details. Your application will then be transferred into UCAS to create your student record at Bristol.

Application confirmation

The University has a legal and moral responsibility to ensure that all its students have valid academic qualifications. If you are taking UK qualifications listed here, these will be verified by UCAS.

If you are taking any other qualifications, we will ask you (whether you hold a conditional or unconditional offer) to bring the original certificates, and copies, with you when you register in September. We will email you later in the year to tell you which certificates we want to see.

Please note: If you are unable to produce valid original documents at registration, you may not be permitted to register as a student of the University.
