Hi! I'm currently studying Spanish, History and Geography at A-Levels with predicted grades ABB. I'm definitely applying to UWE, in fact considering applying for 2 courses at UWE - Politics & IR and Politics & IR (with Foundation) as an insurance choice, do you know if it's possible to apply for both?

Hi gibbo464,

It's so great that you're considering coming to study at UWE Bristol! :biggrin:

It is possible to apply for more than one course at the same university through UCAS, and it's up to you whether you want to do this as part of your application.

This is a great question about your personal application to ask at an open day when you are able to meet the programme leader face-to-face - we have some coming up on the 6th October and 17th November, it would be great to see you!

If you have any other questions specific to your application, please get in touch with Admissions on +44 (0)117 32 83333 or the programme leader - you can find their details from the course listing page, or I can PM them to you

Hope that helps!

Thanks,

Lois

Great to hear that you've sent off your applications, best of luck!

You will know when we receive your application from UCAS, as you should receive an acknowledgement email and login details to your own UWE Welcome website, where you can track your application.

After you've received your acknowledgement email, we aim to notify you of a decision or an update within 14 days.

Hope that helps!

Hi Ankitaaa,

So pleased to hear that you're considering applying to UWE Bristol!

The entry requirements for BSc(Hons) Computer Science are as follows:

- Tariff points: 120
- GCSE: For all applicants, Grade C/4 or above in English Language and Mathematics, or equivalent. Please note the University does not accept Level 2 Key Skills, Functional Skills or Certificates in Adult Numeracy and Literacy as suitable alternatives to GCSEs.
- A-level subjects: No specific subjects required. You can include points from A-Level General Studies and AS-Level subjects (not taken onto full A-Level) towards overall tariff. You must have at least two A-Levels.

We also provide this course with a Foundation year, which requires 72 UCAS Tariff points.

I hope that helps! Please don't hesitate to ask if you have any more questions.

We have a couple of open days coming up - on the 6th October (this Saturday) and 17th November. This is a great opportunity to see the university and talk to the course leader - you can register here.

Best wishes,

Lois

Is Bristol diverse
Hi Pnblk,

Bristol is known for being a diverse city. There is so much to do across Bristol, and a very different 'feel' to various areas. As a couple of examples, Clifton is famous for the suspension bridge and its beautiful Georgian terraces, whereas Stokes Croft is known for its artistic graffiti and nightlife. Throughout the year, there are many different events which are fantastic to attend and I think they represent and celebrate the diverse population of Bristol. For example, this summer we had St. Paul's Carnival, Pride, Bristol Harbour Festival and the International Balloon Fiesta - just to name a few! I really think it's true when people say that there's something for everyone here, no matter what your interests are. It's no wonder that Bristol was voted the best place to live in 2017 by the Sunday Times.

As a university, we believe strongly in equality and diversity, as outlined in our Single Equality Scheme, which demonstrates our commitment to support, learning and a positive experience for all.

I hope that's answered your question - please let me know if you have anything else to ask about the city or UWE Bristol.

Best wishes,

Lois

Hi Ankitaaa,

If you are still studying your A-levels, please take into consideration your predicated grades as well as any grades that you have already received when calculating your UCAS tariff points. This tariff calculator from UCAS should hopefully help!

If you are unsure about eligibility, then please get in touch with our Admissions team who will be able to help - email: [email protected] , telephone: +44 (0)117 32 83333.

Hope that helps.

I've got a conditional offer for the msci in forensic science at Bristol UWE. Can anyone tell me if there are good employment opportunities after completing this course? I've got an unconditional from Keele but I do like the course content at Bristol more.

I'm really worried about making UWE my first choice as they haven't given me an unconditional. Not sure what to do.

Hi rain.ahmed,

That's really exciting, great to hear that your applications are going so well. And that sounds like such an interesting course!

It seems that you've considered lots of different factors when considering your universities, which is really great to see.

Unistats shows that 90% of students that do this course are in employment or further study within 6 months after completing this specific course. Hope that answers your question!

I understand your concern over your choices, however I think it's worth mentioning that the majority of offers that are given are still conditional, so you're in the same boat as a lot of your peers and going through the regular UCAS application process. According to UCAS, 7.1% of offers given for recruitment this September were unconditonal, which is quite a small amount when you think about it - especially when you consider that a lot of those people may have taken a gap year or be mature students and therefore already have their results.

If you feel as though you can meet your predicted grades, then I am sure you'll be fine and hopefully we'll be seeing you here next September! But if you're still concerned, maybe have a chat with a uni adviser at your college/sixth form?

Have you been to one of our open days to take a look at the campus? We have another one coming up on the 17th November.

I hope that helps

Lois

Hi,
I have applied to study Adult Nursing and I got an interview (I applied on the 10th and got the interview on the 11th) so I doubt you have a long time to wait. I really hope you get in x
