The minimum entry requirements for each programme are shown on our course pages.
We also prefer all candidates to have Level 2 qualifications in English and Maths at grade C or equivalent (level 4 under the new GCSE grading system).
The entry requirements for our Level 4 and 5 qualifications are expressed in the form of A Levels and BTEC Extended Diplomas, but we also encourage applications from students with Access to Higher Education Diplomas. Achieving 15 Level 3 credits at Merit is worth 64 UCAS tariff points, with 30 Level 3 credits at Merit worth 80 points.
You may have different Level 3 qualifications or prefer to think in terms of the UCAS tariff, so we’ve also included the below table so you can work out how many points you have.
UCW and our partner universities consider all applications on their own merit, so we still encourage applications from those who do not meet the stated minimum criteria. We would consider accepting an applicant to a course if they have extensive related employment experience, for example, or have studied on a similar course at a different university.
Every year, we welcome students from across the UK and EU and do everything we can to make students feel at home in Weston. Please note that if you are from outside the EU it is unlikely that we would be able to sponsor your Tier 4 visa application. Students who do not speak English as a first language will need to provide evidence of having achieved at least grade 6.0 in the International English Language Test System (IELTS) or GCSE grade C/4 at English Language.
