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.
Applicants who have taken Sri Lankan A-Levels can be considered for undergraduate degree programmes: offers will generally be equivalent to the UK A-Level requirements listed in our Undergraduate Prospectus.
Please note that this information is guidance only. Competition for places at Bristol is very strong and every application to the University is considered on its individual merits. 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 four year Special Bachelor degree with a score of 60% can be considered for entry to a Masters programme.
- For entry to a PhD programme we would require applicants to hold a Masters degree with a minimum of 60%.
Think Big scholarships - New for 2018, the University of Bristol is delighted to launch the new Think Big scholarship scheme. 52 scholarships are available to international applicants for undergraduate and taught postgraduate programmes at the University of Bristol. Information on eligibility and how to apply can be found at bristol.ac.uk/international-scholarships.

British Council in Sri Lanka
The British Council has offices in more than 100 countries, including Sri Lanka. Many of them are able to give guidance and information regarding Higher Education in the UK. Please visit their website to see if there is an office near you, and find out what services may be available.
Our representatives in Sri Lanka
The University has agreements with a number of education representatives (also known as agents) around the world, who can assist you with your application if you so wish. 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.
Please use the services of only one representative to avoid administrative complications. We also strongly advise you to work only with a representative listed on our website.
