Bristol is one of the most popular and successful universities in the UK and was ranked within the top 50 universities in the world in the QS World University rankings 2016. The University has had a reputation for innovation since its founding in 1876. Our research tackles some of the world’s most pressing issues in areas as diverse as infection and immunity, human rights, climate change, and cryptography and information security.
We aim to equip our students with the knowledge and skills to succeed in their chosen career in a competitive global market. We attract students from all over the world, creating a rich and exciting international community. We are also lucky to be located in a vibrant, dynamic city with a reputation for creativity and sustainability. With a choice of over 200 degree courses covering a broad range of subjects, our students engage with intellectually challenging courses that encourage independence of mind. Bristol is small enough to feel warm and friendly, with personal tutors, student health and welfare services, and accommodation wardens to support students, but big enough to provide outstanding extracurricular opportunities.
