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 International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma or A-Levels will be considered for admission to our Bachelor degree programmes. Applicants with very high grades in the Diploma of Specialised Secondary Education may be considered for direct entry to undergraduate study, but in some cases completion of an approved foundation programme may be required first.

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).

Applicants with a Bachelors degree from a recognised institution in Kazakhstan with a GPA of at least 3.3/4 would be considered for entry to a Masters programme.

For entry to a PhD programme we would require applicants to hold a Masters degree in a relevant subject with a minimum GPA of 3.3/4.

Please note that using a representative does not put your application at any advantage or disadvantage when the academic decisions are made within the department. Independent applications will be considered on an equal basis.
