The Prime Minister's eldest son, Euan, has won a place at Bristol University, Downing Street has confirmed.

He will study ancient history at the university after getting two As and a C grade in his A-levels, plus an A grade in general studies.

Number 10 released details about Euan's education after they were reported by the local media in Bristol.

Downing Street had wanted to keep the matter out of the press.

Euan Blair: Getting into ancient history
A spokeswoman said: "Following reports in the Bristol media, we can confirm that Euan Blair will attend Bristol University in the autumn.

"We are grateful to the media who rightfully saw this as a private matter for Euan, particularly in the light of the Press Complaints Commission ruling earlier this year which said that his university application process was a matter for him.

"He is delighted and looking forward to going to a university which has such an excellent reputation."

Euan attended The London Oratory School in Fulham and was deputy head boy there.

A spokesman for Bristol University said: "Three thousand three hundred new students will be joining the university in the autumn.

"We are looking forward to welcoming all of them, including Euan Blair."

Euan Blair is one of thirty students starting the three-year course in ancient history at the end of September.

The university says there were 12 applicants for every place on the course.
