About The University of Bristol

There are many reasons to study at the University of Bristol.

In this world-renowned institution, you will be taught by internationally respected academics and study alongside some of the brightest individuals from all over the world and all parts of society, ensuring a diverse and interesting community. 

We offer a high-quality, research-led education in a supportive environment that encourages independence of mind. Our intellectually challenging courses, designed and taught by leading researchers, are valued by employers worldwide. 

We continually invest in new technology and services to offer the best student experience possible. When you choose a university, you're also choosing the place that will be your new home, so it's important to get it right. The University is small enough to feel warm and friendly, with personal tutors, student health and welfare services to support you, yet big enough to provide outstanding extracurricular opportunities to broaden your horizons and forge lifelong interests and relationships.

Our students always say how much they love the city of Bristol - from its friendly people and diverse music scene to its vibrant Harbourside, green spaces and lively centre. Bristol is a thousand years old but forward-thinking; it is dynamic yet laid-back, creative but down-to-earth. Best of all, Bristol is the perfect size, offering all the excitement of a big city packed into an area you can easily explore.

Many of our students love Bristol so much that they stay here after graduation, with almost a fifth of Bristol graduates successfully finding work here. Considered to be the capital of the South West of England, and one of the UK's greenest cities, Bristol is a fantastic place to make your new home.
