The normal entry route to all undergraduate programmes is through the General Foundation Programme (GFP) which consists of three stages, 12 weeks each (one calendar year). New students are asked to sit a placement test to determine their entry point (Stage 1, Stage 2, Stage 3 or directly to the undergraduate programme).

Progression from the General Foundation Programme to the Undergraduate programmes is subject to achieving a minimum of 60% in each component of the General Foundation Programme.

Students may be admitted to the programme through advanced standing by following UWE Accreditation of Prior Learning (APL) process.
