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.

Applicants with the Diploma za Sredno Obrazovanie (Diploma of Completed Secondary Education) and who have an average of 5.3 or higher can be considered for first year entry to our Bachelor degree programmes, though there are some specific subject requirements of 6.

Applicants with the Diploma za Sredno - Spetzialno Obrazovanie (Diploma of Completed Secondary Education) and who have an average of 5.3 or higher will usually only be considered for admission to our Bachelor degree courses if they have also taken (or are taking) a Foundation Programme or other additional qualifications such as SAT Reasoning and Subject Tests.

When applying to UK universities on the UCAS application form, please make it clear which subject, apart from Bulgarian, will be externally examined for the Diploma qualification. This can be mentioned in the personal statement or the reference. 

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.
